Forensic Accountant


Energetic, inquisitive, instinctive and think outside the box — doesn’t sound like your typical accountant does it? But it’s what it takes to join the team at the Serious Fraud Office. Investigating and prosecuting serious or complex financial crime, including bribery and corruption, is all in a day’s work for this highly skilled group.

You’ll conduct and contribute to investigations, using your demonstrable skills to conduct in-depth accounting and financial analysis. Identifying potential issues and providing solutions that inform the case strategy will also be a critical part of the role — including being able to communicate this information to a variety of stakeholders. You’ll have the challenge of conducting witness and suspect interviews as well as providing evidence in court.

CA qualified, with strong commercial acumen and proven experience in either an established professional services firm (e.g. forensics, tax, audit or insolvency), corporate environment, or regulatory body, you are keen to learn and motivated to make a difference. Skills and experience in data and/or business analysis would also be a plus. A team player operating in a multi-disciplinary setting, you’ll take ownership of tasks or projects and see them through to completion — embodying the SFO principles of excellence, pride and connection along the way. A talented report writer, communicator and influencer, you will enjoy working with people at all levels, both internally and outside the organisation. Naturally, confidentiality is of paramount importance.

If you’re seeking to divert from the traditional accountancy paths and wish to take your career in an exciting new direction while making a unique contribution to ensuring New Zealand is a safe place to invest and do business, contact Annie O'Keefe now at Frog Recruitment. Closing date Tuesday 16th February 2016.
