About the company

The role of the Wales Audit Office is to support the Auditor General for Wales as the public sector watchdog for Wales.

Our aim is to ensure that the people of Wales know whether public money is being managed wisely and that public bodies in Wales understand how to improve outcomes.

About the role

You will follow a four-year fixed-term graduate training programme to train to become a chartered accountant following the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). You will work with our teams across Wales, to deliver a variety of audit services and help scrutinise and improve public services.
We provide full financial support for your training to gain membership with the ICAEW. This support includes: membership subscription, tuition/revision, study material, examination entry and travel expenses where applicable.
Our trainees work with a number of teams across the audit services team as well as other business areas such as our Finance team. You will be involved in the external audit of a range of Welsh public-sector bodies, including local government, NHS bodies and the Welsh Government and its related organisations. You will gain knowledge and experience in the different technical aspects of our audit work, for example the external audit at a number of different clients from across the public sector, grants certification work, data analytics, governance and value for money work.
You will also learn how to establish and maintain good working relationships both internally and externally. You will do this alongside studying for your accountancy qualification and being supported in a full learning and development programme.
