    Forensic Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Interview Details

    Initial interview was not competency based. I was emailed a document and a list of questions that would be the basis of a discussion. It was not expected for any candidate to have a background in forensic audit but to demonstrate analytical and audit planning skills, and business acumen.

    The second interview was intended to test the technical skills of how to audit, but it ended as an open discussion of the role and the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were expected as a list was provided for the document review exercise. There were a couple unexpected questions and where you would be pushed to demonstrate commercial and business sense.   View Answer
