After joining the ANAO as a graduate in 2005, I worked as an auditor for five years, contributing to the financial statement audits of variety of entities. This experience enabled me to develop my audit, analytical, written and oral communication skills. Looking for a new challenge, I joined PSRG in 2010 to further develop my technical auditing and accounting skills and be part of a team that provides support to auditors across the ANAO.
There’s a lot of variety to my work in PSRG. My role includes: providing technical auditing advice to auditors; contributing to development and implementation of audit policies and methodologies; and monitoring national and international developments in the auditing world. As part of my role, I am responsible for development and delivery of a number of technical training courses and updates.
My work in PSRG keeps me challenged and provides me with the opportunity to contribute towards development of solutions to emerging auditing challenges. I thoroughly enjoy helping our auditors solve difficult accounting and auditing problems, particularly during their busy periods of the year.
The ANAO provides an ongoing learning and development program which assist staff in developing and maintaining the skills to deliver high quality products and services. Personally, I have had the opportunity to attend the Australian Public Sector Young Leaders Conference in Melbourne and be part of the ANAO’s Talent Management Program.
PSRG offers a supportive team environment and allows me a genuine work-life balance. As a mother of three children that works part time, I can happily say PSRG, as well as the ANAO, is very accommodating and flexible.
