Are you ready for a challenge? Join us as a Consultant in either

  • Internal Audit, or

  • IT & Specialized Assurance.

What will your typical day look like?

As an Internal Audit or IT Specialized Assurance consultant, you can expect to have a dynamic and exciting career that is full of challenges and opportunities to grow. Every day is different, and you will be constantly learning and expanding your skillset.

You’ll develop and grow your skills through your work on client engagements – which include internal audits, risk assessments, technology audits (such as IT general controls) and third-party assurance (such as SOC 1 and SOC 2 audits).

A typical day might involve meeting with clients to discuss their business and technology processes and identify areas of risk. You might then work as part of a team to execute an audit plan that addresses those risks and ensures compliance with the audit objectives. You could be involved in conducting fieldwork, which may include interviewing staff, reviewing documentation, and testing controls. This is where your analytical and problem-solving skills come into play, as you work to identify potential issues.

Throughout the day, you will be in constant communication with your team and clients, providing updates on your progress and discussing any issues that arise. You may also be responsible for drafting audit findings and discussing issues with management, which requires strong communication skills. You’ll hone your skills by working in a team-based environment, with plenty of on the job learning, coaching and support from more experienced team members.

Individuals with interest in controls, audit methodologies, business and IT operations, IT risk, analytics and data should apply. While not mandatory for an applicant, these roles allows individuals to earn their CPA, CIA, or CISA designation requirements. Our CPA program is recognized in all provinces. In particular, our program allows CPA candidates in Quebec to obtain the “CPA Auditor” title.

Note: CPA candidates in Quebec will complete a rotation in Deloitte’s Audit & Assurance practice to meet CPA Quebec designation requirements.

About the team

Risk Advisory professionals are advisory specialists that help our clients navigate business risks and opportunities, embrace complexity, accelerate performance and gain competitive advantage.

  • IT & Specialized Assurance:

    • We seek to elevate trust, integrity and confidence in Canadian organizations by assuring and advising on IT and emerging technology risks to help our clients achieve regulatory, internal and extended enterprise requirements and maximize their impact.
