Lead Auditor – Contractor – Multi Discipline

Nationwide - homebased 

Are you looking for an independent technical job with a lot of freedom? Are you curious by nature and do you want to work in a variety of industries?  Do you like visiting lots of different clients all around the country?  Do you want to be part of an internationally renowned organisation to develop yourself further?  Do you want to contribute to a safer world by sharing your knowledge with organisations?  Then LRQA is a good choice for you!


About the role 


Clients in financial services, engineering, construction, automotive, 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 a Lead Auditor at LRQA you will – alone or in a team – verify management systems across a wide spectrum of standards, schemes and sectors, as well as broadening your professional horizons.  You will act as an expert and examine and assess the implementation of management systems for our clients around the country. 

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.

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.

It’s a very challenging and diverse job where you get to meet a lot of different people and encounter very interesting (technical) challenges!




Job requirements


  • Recent experience of third-party auditing of management systems, preferably with another certification body
  • An understanding of how to manage client relationships.
  • Good communication and decision-making skills; you can deliver clear audit outcomes.
  • Preparedness to travel when necessary
  • Flexible and proactive attitude


Why work with LRQA? 


Our people love working for an independent organisation with a strong purpose and we have recently announced that Business Assurance and Inspection Services + Nettitude will be leaving the LR Group and will become a standalone business (LRQA) under the ownership of Goldman Sachs Asset Management.  It’s an exciting time to join our business as we have ambitious growth plans.  We are looking for talented people to join our business to help build on our strengths and transform our business to be the best partner for our customers.


In a fast-moving world, our customers trust us to provide precise advice and assurance – they have done for over 35 years.  The scale of our business and depth of our expertise creates experiences you simply won’t find anywhere else.  Our top-ten customers turn over a collective £300 billion pa – how’s that for responsibility?
