Investigative accounting careers
If you’re a qualified accountant looking for varied work and high-quality, ongoing training in a supportive environment, we encourage you to become a financial investigator with the CMC.
Financial investigators are integral team members in the investigation of organised crime, fraud and corruption. You will work in a multidisciplinary team alongside police officers, intelligence analysts and lawyers. Your main focus will be to follow the money trail in calculating ill-gotten gains and identifying proceeds of crime.
We have the largest concentration of financial investigators in Queensland law enforcement, and offer opportunities for career progression at a number of levels. The investigative skills you will gain with us are also highly portable, improving your employment prospects in both the private sector and other law enforcement agencies.
Your skills will help in the fight against crime by:
- gathering financial information from public and non-public sources to develop financial profiles of criminal offenders
- identifying financial links between members of organised crime syndicates
- identifying money laundering schemes
- identifying and recovering the proceeds of crime
- identifying and quantifying fraud and corruption in the public sector
- giving evidence in civil and criminal proceedings for official misconduct, proceeds of crime recovery and organised crime.
