What is Audit?

Would you like to take on responsibility early in your career? Do you enjoy analysing, brainstorming and being creative? Does adding value to your client’s business while working in a team on their premises appeal to you? How about supervising, coaching and mentoring your own teams? Then you’re the Auditor we’re looking for!

Audit is about much more than just the numbers. It’s about attesting to accomplishments and challenges, and helping to assure strong foundations for future aspirations. Deloitte illuminates the what, how, and why of change so you’re always ready to act ahead.

Auditing is a highly complex process, and the importance of auditors as a vital link in the financial reporting chain has never been more important nor their role as trusted advisors more valued.

Conducting an audit means reporting to shareholders or other stakeholders on whether a business or other organisation's accounts show "a true and fair view" of its financial activity. Auditors give confidence to stakeholders of a business, like investors, customers and even regulators, that the business is stable and well-run. To do so, you need to understand business - how they're run, how they identify and manage risks, how they present themselves in the marketplace, and how the industries in which they operate work. Understanding accounting is an element of that, but only one element.

So auditors provide an important service that enables the business world to function, can help to identify and prevent fraud, and helps the Belgian economy. Auditors also provide a wider set of audit-related services, known as assurance.
