In the past, we had many sign up for the job. We would then book outside training, send them out of town for a few days, then they would come back ready to audit. Well, not ready to audit. Actually, not wanting to audit at all in many cases. The results were rushed and added no value.
We had plenty of manpower, but lacked seriously on results. Currently, i have the chance to pick good candidates. I have fewer auditors, but the quality of the audits have greatly improved.
What we demonstrated about the old method is that just because someone says they want to do it, doesn't make them a good fit. You need to look for people that have the right attributes for the job, then give them the support they need to be successful.

Earn and maintain an excellent reputation for the objectivity, impartiality and value of the audit process and its auditors,

Ask your fellow managers to select candidates to volunteer for auditor training per the attributes recommended by ISO 19011.

Ask HR to give you a heads up on any new employees with these attributes.

Make sure you have a cross-section of volunteers from all departments.

Actually, some organizations don't want to volunteer as an internal auditor because of additional function they will have to do probably every month or every quarter.

But in our end, thought we had a busy schedule, we make sure that the internal audit will be conducted every quarter (full audit).

I volunteered to be an internal auditor for TL-9000 when my manager asked for someone on our team to step up. I leveraged it into a full role in the central quality team, a Six Sigma Black Belt and it's kept me employed for years after the tech companies started laying off people over 50. There's no better way to learn everything about an organization than to become an internal auditor (damn, I should be a recruiting poster) ;)

You showed initiative and a desire to help the company and it paid-off for you. Excellent. May your tribe increase. Too many people want the payoff without the effort.
