Attracting and retaining talent in the audit profession

Cameron Town CA, Audit Partner, Silks Audit Chartered Accountants sees workplace flexibility as an important means to improving workforce morale and boosting retention rates. “Since the pandemic, we’ve introduced more flexibility into our workplace and it’s certainly given everyone a fresh perspective
on how we work,” Town says. This flexibility, it’s worth noting, applies to specific roles and tasks of the audit process, with some staff working more remotely than others. Ultimately, it all comes down to balance.

Amotai – Whanganui Accounting Firm understands the multiple bottom line.

Talia’s story is exceptional, but this husband-and-wife team have designed the business to pursue excellence and encourage more Māori to follow a career in financial services.
“We’re always trying to get Māori into audit,” she says. “It’s probably an area that doesn’t have many Māori pursuing a career but there are lots of Māori clients out there,
“It’s all about creating opportunities, and we offer a pathway for graduates to go all the way to potentially being a director or audit partner like I did.”
