Senior auditors must make a decision as to whether or not items on a financial statement are factual, complete, and free from errors. Reliability and relevance are two factors that senior auditors take into account when they are evaluating a financial statement. The biggest responsibility of a senior auditor is to check for errors and suspicious activity in a company’s records. They document areas in which a company can run more effectively, as well as how to manage certain operations to ensure that valuable resources such as time, money, and effort aren’t wasted.
Senior auditors must have at least a bachelor’s degree in accounting, business, or a related field. Most corporations prefer a senior auditor to have a master’s degree in one or more of these fields. Certifications are also available, but they are seen as supplementary and are not sufficient alone. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
