We provide audit and assurance services to a large number of the Top 100 ASX companies, global multinationals, and some of Australia's largest, most complex private companies. We are experiencing rapid momentum and growth across all segments of the market.

A career with Deloitte Audit & Assurance will give you the opportunity to be at the forefront of our profession, working with great people, clients, and technology, with endless opportunities to shape your career and make your mark. 

Our business areas
  • Audit
    As independent auditors, our purpose is profound and impactful - our work underpins the accuracy of the financial information that shareholders use to make economic and investment decisions. It's not just shareholders who rely on financial information produced by companies – customers, employees, and regulators are other key stakeholders. Ultimately, we serve the public interest through the trust and confidence we bring to financial reporting.

    Our audit team works with some of Australia’s biggest household names, rising stars, and leading multinationals in a range of sectors, including financial services, manufacturing, real estate, pharmaceutical, media, tech, and energy.

    Leveraging tech like never before, our audits go beyond the audit opinion and give our clients and their stakeholders insight and comfort as they look back but also look ahead.

  • Assurance
    Our Assurance business provides confidence, challenge, and advice to clients on some of their most important issues. Whether it’s for complex financial reporting, finance operations, M&A, governance, regulatory, ESG, or algorithm assurance, your input will help give our clients the assurance they need to make decisions and act. Our work is powered by innovative technology and a collaborative team spanning a range of expertise, including accounting, conduct, governance, compliance, technology, and operations.
