Audit Jobs in Luxembourg
Where are most of the audit jobs based?
Given the geographic size of the country it probably comes as no surprise that the vast majority of audit vacancies in Luxembourg are based in and around Luxembourg City although some positions may be available in other main centres such as Esch-sur-Alzette, Dudelange, and Differdange.
What kind of life can I expect?
Luxembourg is a trilingual country; German, French and Luxembourgish are official languages. Although by no mean essential anyone speaking any of these languages will have an advantage.
The quality of life remains strong as Luxembourg retains a reputation for peacefully quiet living. For auditors relocating from another country normally find that it is an easy place to feel welcome and make friends with other people from similar background – not surprising given that over one third of the population are immigrants.
What kind of job titles should I look out for when searching for a job?
All the main job titles listed are similar to those for Germany and France so look out for auditeur interne, revisor or general internal auditor titles.
What kinds of audit jobs are available?
Although historically Luxembourg has had strong ties to the industrial sector (particularly Steel) recent years have seen a huge boom in financial services - Luxembourg is Europe’s largest investment fund centre – as well being home to the EMEA headquarters of a number of large international businesses.
The majority of candidates coming from external audit will have experience dealing with clients in the funds sector.
So will I need specific audit qualifications?
The main audit qualification in Luxembourg is credited by the insitut des Réviseurs d’entreprises although many international firms may look for other qualifications such as the ACCA, CPA etc.
For those wish to undertake the CIA exams Luxembourg also has a local IIA Chapter.
Most IT Audit positions will require the CISA qualification.
