They also perform risk assessments while testing and creating new methods and processes to direct, tutor, and instruct the auditors to put in their charge.
The Manager may also work in a company which, either as a whole or in part, is focused on helping their clients keep track of their inner workings, or they might work as a consultant, merely suggesting and occasionally applying various changes to make the many processes and paperwork just a little more efficient.
A candidate for this position will typically need to have at least a Bachelor's degree in a field of study such as Accounting, Business, or Finance, as well as several years, at least, of experience working in a similar position. Larger companies may also require a Master's degree or the equivalent in terms of professional certification, such as a CPA.
