Forensic Accountant

The SFO is a highly specialised government department responsible for serious and complex fraud investigations and prosecutions, including Bribery and Corruption. We all take pride in the work that we do towards keeping New Zealand safe from financial crime. We employ an excellent team of accountants, lawyers and investigators to ensure we do just that.
