A learning environment full of growth opportunities

A teaching and learning environment that supports growth in both academic and professional life. A deadline driven environment that requires one to take responsibility of own delivery.

It was bit of both stressful at some point and fine

The stress part was during the end of the audit when you have to work overtime at work and at home in order to complete the component that you are doing. and the part that i enjoy was to travel to the client and get to know the western cape.

Excellent company to grow in and with.

I have grown alot from the opportunity afford and can without a doubt say this was a stepping stone for great things to come in my career aspirations and also made me emotionally sound and strong when facing challenging clients not always in agreement with the audit outcomes. I would encourage any onewanting to have a career at the AG to live the value and culture to the best. Be focus on making a contribution in strengthening our country's democracy in the work you do.

Supreme audit instituition

Fair place to work at. Salary matches your education and experience. Have to travel. Alot. No consideration is given as to whether you are a single parent or not. Training is given by one manager and one would not be sure if the training is sufficient until another manager is allocated to you.

Impactful Employer

AGSA is a great employer. They are very supportive to its staff and they invest tremendously in their personnel. The mandate affords everyone who is a part of them an opportunity to make difference in our country. I am a proud product of the organization.

Good salary and benefits

I liked the fact that the Auditor General of South Africa pays market-related salaries and they also provide employees with free medical aid. The work is more stressful around deadlines.

The only skill you can learn is auditing.

The company cares about development of black kids. The only issue I have is that you can only develop a skill of audit and they use one software which becomes a challenge when you have to apply for other jobs.

Good learning environment

A typical day at work involved communicating with the client, gathering audit evidence by performing audit procedures on a sample of transactions. Everyday is a learning opportunity, to learn from the managers, peers and juniors. i learned how to communicate with different types of audiences, how to maintain a high level of professional skepticism as well as my professionalism. Management provide direction and supervision. They are very hands on and ensure you are giving 100% to your job. They are also actively involved in your development and growth and try to mentor and coach you as you develop into a professional. The workplace culture is friendly, there is mutual respect for different races, genders and backgrounds. The hardest part of the job was doing more work due to unfilled positions. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with people from different backgrounds and working together to achieve common goal.

Pros

Friendly people

Cons

Sometimes long hours

At AG I learnt a lot from administration to technical knowledge of work. Working individually and in groups is encouraged. Guidance provided by our technical team in our office for technical issues in our auditees was of the best always.

Pros

Study support
