- This is not a manager position, but you will be responsible for managing your own schedule within the firm’s expected client service hours workload.

- Within the budgeted time for each review, you will schedule and scope the engagement, select the documents for review, interview clients, review the provided documents (in person or using secure file share technologies), complete and document your review within our programs and forms, identify concerns or exceptions, determine root causes, communicate findings and best practices, prepare the deliverable within our required formats, respond to internal review comments, enter your time and complete an expense report, if applicable.
- Your managers will assign your review scopes, clients, and specific jobs based on your expertise and client complexity. With these variables, you would serve between 20-25 different clients per year and perform 30-50 individual engagements. Although each client and engagement is unique, there is a structured repetition that guarantees ongoing learning and adaptation, always staying ahead of the curve in order to provide the best value and efficiency for our clients.
- You’ll be expected to participate in and develop periodic training on relevant internal controls and regulations. You will have access to a coach and a career path which may include professional certifications, association memberships, and/or attending events to interact with clients and prospects.
