Our Audit team is looking for you!
Our auditors help our national and international customers to achieve their corporate goals, manage their risks and improve their business performance. Is auditing your passion? Then we're the right company for you.


Auditing is a highly complex process, and the importance of auditors as a vital link in the financial reporting chain has never been more important nor their role as trusted advisors more valued. Deloitte offers you national and international career opportunities as well as a broad internal and external training programme.


Your main assignment will be to join a culturally diverse audit team of one of Deloitte’s largest Energy and Resources audit client, a FTSE 20 company, providing both exposure to the excellent Swiss working environment and the UK financial markets.

Having experience in developing and analysing transaction-flow diagrams on key business cycles will be an advantage.

• You will be expected to have a solid understanding of how IFRS is applied to some of the more complex mining specific account balances such as decommissioning liabilities, inventory valuation and acquisition and disposal accounting. Given our customer base, our projects have a strong international flavour and offer you the chance to be self-motivated and creative.
