The Law Society of British Columbia’s Trust Assurance department is seeking an experienced accounting professional with audit and investigation skills to fill a permanent full-time Auditor role. 

The role

Auditors at the Law Society conduct compliance audits at new and established law firms in the Lower Mainland and throughout the rest of BC to ensure that lawyers comply with the trust accounting and other professional conduct rules and to identify potential misconduct related to financial matters. Auditors conduct investigation work from start to finish, including planning, executing, information collection, interviewing, analyzing and reporting. At the conclusion of the audit, they provide feedback to lawyers regarding their level of compliance with the rules and on the steps that should be taken to remedy any deficiencies.  Serious non-compliant firms are referred to the Law Society’s Professional Conduct Department. Auditors also participate in the review and refinement of the Trust Assurance Program, including the continued development of audit procedures and reference materials such as the Trust Accounting Handbook.

Candidates must be able to meet deadlines while working autonomously, be detailed oriented, have exceptional writing skills and possess a keen desire to learn. Candidates require an investigative mindset. Advanced training in fraud and anti-money laundering related courses and a CAMS, CFE or CIA designation is desirable, and would be encouraged and financially supported for interested employees.

Covid-19 and travel

The applicant must hold a valid BC driver’s license and have access to a vehicle. The position requires traveling throughout BC (10-20% out-of-town travel). However, during Covid, all audits have been conducted remotely.
