About us

Here at the Wales Audit Office, we work to support the Auditor General as the public sector watchdog for Wales

Our aim is to ensure that the people of Wales know whether public money is being managed wisely and that public bodies in Wales understand how to improve outcomes.

We do this on behalf of the Auditor General in:
Auditing the financial accounts of public bodies
Reporting on how services are being delivered
Assessing whether value for money is being achieved
Checking how organisations are planning and delivering improvements

We are also committed to identifying and publicising good practice, to help public bodies deliver better services.

If you have an interest in the Public Sector in Wales and a passion to make a difference; if you want a career that counts; our Graduate Programme may be just what you’re looking for!

If you choose to join us, you will be fully supported to achieve an internationally recognised and highly acclaimed ICAEW accountancy qualification.

Working with a number of teams across the Wales Audit Office, you will have opportunities to gain knowledge and experience in various aspects of our financial and performance audit work.

In addition, you will benefit from the opportunity to develop many other skills including leadership, critical thinking and emotional intelligence culminating in an ILM recognised qualification.
