What are the Opportunities for Advancement and Professional Development?

The Auditor’s Office believes in filling available positions by promoting qualified professionals from within the office. Advancement is based upon performance, which is monitored under an evaluation process which encourages active, two-way communication. Staff positions, in order of increasing responsibilities, are: Assistant Auditor, Staff Auditor, Senior Auditor, and Senior Auditor II. Opportunities are also available for managerial positions.

Continuing professional development is required and is achieved through on-the-job training, in-house training programs and outside training courses and seminars. For those wishing to continue their formal education, a tuition reimbursement program is available for areas of study related to governmental auditing.

The Auditor’s Office supports staff members in their required efforts to obtain the professional certification of Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or Certified Internal Auditor (CIA). We also encourage staff members to be active participants of the accounting profession, and promote membership and participation in professional organizations.
