Job purpose

The role of an auditor is to ensure financial statements produced by clients are ‘true and fair' and an accurate representation of the transactions and balances they claim to represent. In the industry & services team, you can expect to be part of highly engaged teams, working together to deliver high quality audits in line with client expectations and deadlines.

We are looking for candidates with a strong desire to learn and progress, and we give increasing responsibility when an individual is ready rather than at pre-determined periods.  However, our broad expectation of roles and responsibilities during the three-year training contract is set out below.

  • Work with various clients, building a strong understanding of their business;
  • Learn how to prepare professional audit documents in line with our audit methodology using audit software and systems;
  • Develop a thorough understanding of financial statements; and
  • Be able to obtain relevant information from clients whilst building effective rapport with clients.

During your second year you will:

  • Be able to help less experienced team members.

In your final year you will:

  • Be expected to take on significantly more responsibilities.  Depending on the client, this may involve taking the lead on a technical area or a team and ensuring the entire audit file is completed.  This will include a combination of working to stated deadlines, managing the work of junior members, taking responsibility for the budget, and presenting in both team and client meetings.

Who we are?

Afghanistan has one of the slowest internet speeds in the world. Broadband connection is not available in everywhere and mobile data as a most used way to connect to the world is very expensive. Job search portals are very heavy and takes lots of time to load; therefore making it very hard and time-consuming for job seekers to find their dream job. To address this problem we launched Afghanistan's first speed optimized job search portal, with at least 15 times faster load time and maximum 200 kbs page size.
