1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


Go to different clients and work on different parts of the audit. Daily tasks vary day-to-day from working on cash movements to enquiring with the client about to movement in debtors from the prior year.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I have learnt a lot about professional behaviour and how to interact with clients on a one-to-one level. We have had a lot of internal courses which have improved my computer abilities and documentation abilities. We are also training toward an ICAEW qualification so have obviously learnt a lot about audit itself; this has been through several weeks at college but more importantly on the job training.
