Abstract: 
The purpose of this study is to investigate relationship between leadership style and job satisfaction of the auditors employed in audit firms. The situational leadershi p model is used according to the leadership style of Hersey and Blanchard. The target population included members of the audit firm of certified public accountants, auditors working in Iran. Two types of questionnaires were used to collect data, On the fi rst questionnaire, the leadership style based on the four leadership styles of Hersey and Blanchard, was examined. Also the second survey by Smith and Hyulyn (1969) considered job satisfaction by auditors. In addition, Cochran formula was used to determine the sample size and eventually 120 usable questionnaires were collected and analysed. To interpret the results and analyze the data the SPSS software was used. The results show that among the four leadership styles which have been studied (telling, selling, participative and delegative), telling style is the dominant style. Leadership style orders solidarity proved to be better than other styles regarding job satisfaction. But this solidarity has got reverse relationship. There is a direct relationship between job satisfaction and demographic variables such as gender, marital status, job category, years of service and age, in audit firms. As it seems job satisfaction in men is more than women and in married auditors is more than singles. And also lower satisfaction among senior managers than others have been observed.
