Audit & Assurance Trainer 


Position Summary:

Every company has both tangible and intangible assets. While not appearing on a balance sheet, the biggest asset a professional services firm has is its people. ORBA seeks an individual with audit and assurance training experience or who is looking to transition to a non-client facing training role. This person will work with the Head of Audit to execute and create additional Audit & Assurance topic training for all levels of the Audit Department.

It is critical for engagement teams to not only know WHAT to do and HOW to do it in compliance with professional and regulatory standards…but also WHY they are doing it. It is only with the understanding of WHY that personnel can make sound qualitative judgments about improving efficiency.
