Job Description

Deloitte’s Audit & Enterprise Risk Services help organizations build value by taking a Risk Intelligent approach to managing financial, technology, and business risks. This approach helps our clients focus on their areas of increased risk, bridge silos to effectively manage risk across organizational boundaries, and seek not only risk mitigation, but also pursue intelligent risk taking as a means to value creation. Financial Statement & Internal Control Audit services provide audits and reviews of financial statements and reporting on internal controls in accordance with applicable professional standards. Our audits are planned to be responsive to our assessment of the risk of material misstatement based on the understanding we gain of the organization and its environment, including its internal control. We utilize this understanding to design the nature, timing, and extent of our audit procedures, while maintaining an objective and independent attitude. We also strive to provide timely communications regarding professional developments, and insights regarding matters that may affect the organization’s business.
