« on: March 01, 2014, 09:26:19 AM »

If you have been offered an interview for the role of Auditor then you will be a qualified and experienced Auditor with experience of going into companies and providing audits on their company information to ensure that they are following the correct standards and guidelines and filing the appropriate paperwork at the right time.

As an Auditor you will be client facing so it is important that you have a professional and confident manner about yourself. You will be seen by your clients as someone very important who can explain important company information to them and help them to continue progressing their business.

As you will be in a client facing role you may need to do a lot of travelling to and from clients so you will need to be comfortable with this. You will need to prepare detailed reports for your clients and the company you work for as to findings and what financial paperwork that you are auditing. You will need to have excellent skills with Excel and financial packages.

Auditor Interview Questions

During your interview you could be asked questions such as:
  • How do you gauge levels of risk within a small company?
  • What process do you follow when at a first meeting with a client?
  • What experience have you had in preparing reports?
  • What systems and packages have you been used to using and how quickly do you pick up new systems?
  • Is there any further training you would like to do to continue your career?
  • Describe a situation when you are asked to do something unethical.
  • How do you keep up to date with current news? Which news story interests you and why?
  • Write an email to a client.
  • Advantages and disadvantages of IFRS.
  • A time when you've done something outside of your comfort zone?
  • Name your 3 biggest weaknesses.
  • How do you see yourself in 5 year time?
  • What is Audit?
  • Give me an example of when you had to deal with a difficult customer and explain How you dealt with it?
  • Why do you want to work for us?
  • Describe a difficult situation and how you managed to resolve it.
  • Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Depending on your background you may be linked to specific companies for example if you background is engineering you could have engineering clients etc and this will open the basis for your questions and help your interviewer to tailor the questions that they ask you during your interview. If you have done your research into the company and the background then you should have enough knowledge of the background of the company.

Good luck.
