Our graduate program not only allows you to put the knowledge you learned at university into practice, but also gives you hands-on experience in the challenging and unique world of public sector auditing. You will learn about how the state government and the public sector operates. All of the work you do will help take QAO closer to our vision of better public services.

QAO has a professional services culture, which means we invest in advanced audit capabilities, such as data analytics, and we use modern information technology and communications (ICT). Our people are capable, professional, and enthusiastic. You will be offered training, support, and learning opportunities every step of the way.

We know what it takes to be successful, capable, and engaged. At QAO we invest in the professional and personal development of our people to ensure they are the best they can be. Many of our financial auditors have achieved, or are working towards, post graduate qualifications such as CA ANZ, CPA, or IPA.
