An auditing clerk in a company will be responsible for verifying the credibility of employee’s claims for any finance-related activities, such as determining if an employee should be fully compensated for a business trip’s expenses. An auditing clerk must analyze all of the information related to a specific employee’s case, taking every detail into consideration, in order to be able to make a proper assessment on the employee’s eligibility. Additionally, an auditing clerk will be responsible for organizing the company’s financial statements and keeping track of all of the employees’ records that relate to their financial status within the company.
Auditing clerks have similar requirements for their job as most other finance-related employees – an educational background in finances or economics is preferable, and good mathematics skills are a requirement. Since auditing clerks need to work with large amounts of interlinked information, they should also be good analysts and be able to correctly identify related elements within a given set. Additionally, auditing clerks may be required to have some professional background with handling finances and/or financial records for another company on a lower level.
Auditing clerks usually earn between $30,000 – $45,000, depending on their years of experience. The prospect for increase in salary isn’t that high though, as usually those with over 20 years of experience earn just about $15,000 more annually than those who’re just starting out. Average expected starting salary is $25,000 – $35,000 annually.
