Do you want a career that's driven by purpose rather than profit?

Are you looking for a supportive environment where you will learn and grow every day, have fun doing your job, and be generously rewarded - all without giving up your social life?

Do you want to join a high-performance culture where diversity is celebrated and creativity is rewarded?

We value people with integrity and a focus on quality outcomes. If this intro appeals to you, we warmly invite you to consider this exceptional opportunity to build a career that ensures transparency and accountability in public service.

Who we are

We help improve government programs and services by examining how effectively, efficiently and economically public agencies use their resources.

VAGO is filled with people who love what they do, enact change and uphold our values. We are a workforce of highly motivated, empathetic and collaborative people, who encourage innovation and knowledge sharing.

We strive to build and maintain an inclusive workplace that takes pride in diversity and actively supports balance and harmony in all our roles.

What you'll do

Financial Audit Graduates commence in February 2022 and will:

  • Support the audit of financial reports and performance statements of public sector entities
  • Develop an understanding of public agency financial systems
  • Build positive relationships with internal and external partners
  • Identifying and report fundamental audit issues
  • Learn and apply auditing standards, methodology and guidelines

Want to know more? Check out the position description on our careers page or call us for a friendly and confidential chat.

Who you are

We're looking for students in their final year of Accounting and/or STEM based study (or those who've already graduated) who can demonstrate:

  • Strong communication and social skills
  • Sound judgment and a willingness to use initiative
  • Resilience and maturity
  • Alignment with the VAGO values of Respect, Collaboration, Innovation and Accountability

Experience working in an accounting, audit, or professional services environment isn't needed, but would be well regarded.

You'll be keen to complete accreditation with either Chartered Accountants ANZ or Certified Practising Accountants Australia (don't worry about course fees - they're on us! We'll also give you paid time off to prepare for and take exams)

Why join us?

Our independent audit role gives us exclusive access to our clients. You'll have a unique opportunity to improve public sector operations, projects and activities that impact the daily lives of over six million Victorians.

VAGO actively fosters diversity and inclusion, so we strongly encourage applications from First Nations People and/or people who are differently abled.

You'll enjoy flexibility in your working arrangements including working when and as much as you want*, and also where you want^.
