Assistant Auditor (Year 2)
One of the main reasons I chose to apply to the National Audit Office was the opportunity to study for the ACA qualification as I knew how valuable it would be for my career. However I was also keen to have a diverse range of work opportunities whilst studying. The NAO’s offer of financial audit experience combined with Value for Money studies greatly appealed to me, as did the opportunity to work with public sector bodies and government departments.
The last year has certainly met my expectations. I have had the opportunity to work on a range of accounts, from the Money Advice Service to HM Treasury. I have also been involved in a number of Value for Money studies, as well as spending several weeks of the year at college. There have been challenges along the way but also lots of highlights and I am very pleased that I chose to start my career at the NAO.
