Tough process for new NAO employees

Tough process for new NAO employees

Low starting salary plus three years training for audit recruits

Anyone thinking of joining the National Audit Office will have to survive a
gruelling  recruitment process, and then undergo three years of study if they
wish to forge a successful career at the audit watchdog.

To get an initial interview candidates must submit an application online
and pass a maths test.

If they are successful they then undergo a group selection process, where
they are invited in for a full day to complete a case study, a group exercise, a
presentation, and have a further interview.

If they are successful with this, a job offer is made and new employees can
expect a starting salary of £23,369, which increases with annual pay rises, the
Independent reported.

Once employed, three years of accountancy training follows with time split
between college, on dedicated study blocks, and audits at client sites.

About 70 graduates are recruited each year.
