If you go for a job as an internal auditor, you evaluate the extent to which guidelines and regulations are complied with within a company. In addition, you take a critical look at the operation, effectiveness, and efficiency of how processes are organised. You also assess risks and assess the quality of information processing. You will process all this information in a report with practical recommendations and advice to improve the business processes. Linked to the improvement steps you define, you then follow up on their implementation.
If external audit is more your cup of tea, you are responsible for auditing the annual accounts and financial reporting. Projects such as mergers, demergers, contributions in kind, and due diligence are also part of your responsibilities. Furthermore, you fulfil your role as an advisor.
