We appreciate the strengths of having a diverse workforce and have staff who originate from many countries including the UK, Singapore, China, and South Africa, as well as our strong core of New Zealanders.

We pride ourselves on being an internationally recognised audit practice focused on the public sector. We have strong links to Audit Offices around the Pacific and throughout the world and play our part internationally to ensure that public auditing is constantly improving. We are also well represented within the international community of Audit Offices, including membership on various international standard setting and other groups.
