Vacancy

As an IT Auditor at JOINSON&SPICE, you will support your fellow accountants in checking the annual accounts. You will do so by analyzing the company’s IT environment. You will investigate whether the system is reliable and where possible errors occur. You will report your findings to co-workers or to the customer, and if there are any issues, you will also offer a solution. Additionally, a customer may ask you to examine the IT environment and check it for errors. Following this, you should create a report on it and provide the customer with advice.

Firsthand experience

When auditing the annual account, fellow accountants want to know if the customer’s system is reliable. How should you figure this out?

You regularly work with companies which, for example, have an online web shop and have built their own IT environment. Therefore, they don’t work with an accounting system that has built-in securities. Because the system was built internally, you can never be sure upfront whether it’s flawless. Therefore, your fellow accountants cannot just rely on it.

To find out whether the system contains errors, you perform a data analysis. This allows you to uncover any errors. For a web shop, for example, you compare the amount of orders with the number of payments. If these are the same, nothing has gone wrong. However, the system can still contain an error. If that’s the case, this error may not have caused problems up until this point, but it might in the future.

Once you’ve fully analyzed the system and removed the errors, you come up with solutions to the errors. You report all this to the customer.

Growth

You can be an IT auditor, a certified accountant, or an assignment manager in the short term. This will be faciliated through a broad development path/training plan.
