Promote a Culture of Sound Quality & Risk Management

Deloitte's Audit & Assurance practice helps our national and international clients achieve their corporate goals, manage their risks and improve their business performance. Likewise, Deloitte must manage the risks in its own business and thereby preserve our reputation for high Audit & Assurance quality service. Audit Quality is the highest priority of our A&A strategy to serve in the public interest and to sustain the trust in Audit & Assurance. As part of the Audit Quality & Risk Management ("AQRM") team, an internal function, you will help to promote a culture of sound quality and risk management by acting as a Subject Matter Expert for the Audit & Assurance practitioners. You will advise and support the business on the mitigation of all areas of risk, to protect the firm's reputation and find solutions that enable the business to meet its objectives.
