When registered candidate auditors are appointed as managers, their responsibilities expand to include those also expected from the partners. These responsibilities comprise more high-level communication with clients, risk assessment of clients’ businesses, overseeing audit engagements and leading teams. This new phase in a lifelong learning journey may be navigated successfully with a solid base of key technical and professional skills, and guidance provided along the way.
