An associate auditor is responsible for performing tests and reviews of a company’s internal control systems - and the manner in which they are conducted - to ensure accuracy and effectiveness; they also must ensure that requirements of a company’s audit control systems, industry audit expectations, and legal requirements are met. Corporations, non-profit agencies, and government agencies often employ associate auditors, as do outside accounting firms hired to review companies' financial statements.
