  • Expertise in auditing financial controls and operations with a working knowledge of regulatory compliance
  • Sound understanding of GAAP, COSO, Sarbanes Oxley Act, and PCAOB Rules, experience in the use of auditing and assessment frameworks and the application of professional standards
  • Experience with performing risk assessments and leveraging them to prioritize workstreams
  • Attention to detail, including ability to issue-spot, identify patterns, flag incongruencies
  • Ability to apply critical thinking and analysis, and exercise professional judgment
  • Ability to discuss complex issues with multiple levels of management and influence perspectives
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills, including report positioning and clarity
