Ensure that Auditors do their work accurately and lawfully.
What does an Audit Manager do?
Auditing is the process of analyzing paperwork and procedures to make sure a system is lawful, functioning, and accurate. It involves number crunching and regulation munching. Those who enjoy that particular kind of lunch can work as Audit Managers and oversee the auditing process.
As an Audit Manager, you supervise the actions of the Auditors in your office. That means answering a lot of questions, like whether records are accurate and whether correct documentation was used. In addition, you scrutinize the work to make sure your Auditors follow company and regulatory protocol.
Communication is a major component of an Audit Manager’s job. Clients rely on you to explain procedures and tell them what they can expect from the process. These clients might be anyone from a Small Business Owner to the CEO of a major corporation.
Employees also look to you for answers to questions. You inform them about upcoming jobs, keep them in the loop about changes or problems, and lead training sessions as necessary. In addition to working with clients and Auditors, you’re expected to share information with upper management.
Speaking of upper management, they rely on you to create budgets for each project. When the audit is complete, you create a report that summarizes the information, both for the client and for your bosses.
