The career paths for individuals studying accountancy diverge into several roles, generally reflecting the person’s preference — there are roles which involve risky ventures; roles that have a routine imbued in them and then there are roles for perceptive individuals who excel in being insightful and bringing certainty to companies.
The latter is where accountants who become auditors fall — a role that requires an excellent eye for detail to assure the data being analysed is correct and in line to give companies the assurance they require for business. As the Castille Salary benchmark survey has shown, the salary figures for auditors in Malta is attractive especially since there is always great demand for talent to fill this role.

Beyond numbers, auditors will bring their technical knowledge and experience to establish the right perception to the data of the company in question.
