About the role


Clients in financial services, engineering, aerospace, marine, IT, and government sectors depend on LRQA to effectively audit their management systems and provide assurance of business-critical compliance and risk management.


As well as undertaking risk-focused audits and making certification decisions yourself, you’ll call on your accomplished people skills to guide and develop other auditors, to cultivate positive client relationships and to proactively share feedback that helps us to keep improving the service we deliver.


In return, we’ll invest in your training and development to include qualification to Lead Auditor status in a number of Information Security standards and a globally recognised certification to ISACA CISA level.

We’ve a well-developed homeworking infrastructure for when you’re not visiting clients and have been a champion of new ways of working for many years. The role gives you the opportunity to obtain a healthy blend of travel and visiting client sites whilst retaining the flexibility to undertake remote audits when required.

  • An understanding of how to manage client relationships.
  • Good communication and decision-making skills; you can deliver clear audit outcomes.
