Hiring External Auditors 285

The mian audit firms are pretty large and available talent pool to recruit from is limited so this issue is going to come up from time to time.
My understanding is that the following scenarios are acceptable:
- to hire someone from your audit firm that was not part of your audit team
- to hire someone who has been part of your audit team but not for the last 12 months
- to hire someone from your audit team but not to a senior financial management role - it is the role that the auditor has in your company that is important not their role in the audit firm.
