Through our research, we have identified two pivotal categories of skills that will be impacted by AI-driven automation :

  • 'Future-proof skills', which are projected to retain their value and resist automation, thereby ensuring their relevance in the forthcoming job market.
Let's have a look at the future of your skills for this job :
At-risk Skills
Manual verification While many audit processes are automated, the skill of manual verification of documents and processes is becoming obsolete.
Proficient in IT tools and business software With the rapid evolution of technologies, simply having a "very good knowledge" of current tools may not be sufficient in the long term, as these tools can quickly become obsolete or be replaced by more advanced solutions.
Future-proof Skills
In-depth knowledge of regulation, especially on personal data The needs for privacy and data security are only going to increase over time, as technology advances and more data are generated and shared. A deep understanding of regulation in this area will not be easily replaced by automation or technology, as it requires a nuanced understanding of legal and ethical implications.
Close collaboration with management and integration in the company's risk management The ability to collaborate closely with management and understand organizational and strategic dynamics will remain essential. This skill goes beyond simply performing technical tasks; it concerns the ability to understand, interpret, and advise on complex issues, which requires interpersonal, analytical, and strategic skills.
