Hi,

Hoping for a little advice, what qualifications are required to become an auditor for a CB (BSI, for example)?

Also, what's the starting salary? I've tried looking on various sites but I'm struggling to find any information.

Thanks in advance...

Re: Becoming a CB Auditor - UK

Depends on what you want to audit, every scheme has different requirements. I've always found it best to ask the organization what they want or need and what I must be able to supply

A real quick look at BSI Career's that are posted for an automotive I found this:
"To be successful in this role you?ll be able to demonstrate 6 years? experience from the past 10 within the automotive industry, with a minimum 2 years quality assurance experience dedicated to ISO/TS16949. This experience would be from direct OEM Vehicle manufacture or through the automotive supply chain. The successful applicant must also have a knowledge of the automotive core tools which include SPC, FMEA, MSA and APQP. Having a current IATF Assessor qualification would also be highly advantageous.

Knowledge and training in ISO 9001 is also highly desirable as is a degree level education or equivalent . A comprehensive knowledge of business processes and management systems is also required."


For chemical and process auditors I found this:
"To be successful in this role you?ll have practical experience within the Chemical and Process Industries with a comprehensive knowledge of business processes and management systems living in the Central Belt or North East region of Scotland.

Knowledge and training in ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHS 18001 is highly desirable as is a degree level education or equivalent and a NEBOSH qualification.

We help our clients achieve best practice so that means you?ll need to have the ability to assimilate, articulate and present information at a high level. You?ll be working constantly with clients so excellent interpersonal skills as well as strong verbal communication and written report writing skills are also essential."


Why don't you check out (AUDIT) the different CB websites to try and get your answer?

Thanks Randy,

I have tried searching tonight however using the web browser on my phone it struggles on some sites. Hence I didn't get as far as you did.

My back ground is predominantly ISO9001 & AS9100, so therefore didn't check out automotive either.

I will bring the laptop home tomorrow and have a good browse.

I just wondered if there were any current auditors who could share any information.

I am a current auditor and have about 14 years with the CB you noted. There is a need for AS9100 in the UK, but achieving CB certification can be challenging at best. Now if you're looking for External (contract) work the UK folks are advertising that as well.

Just go to the BIS site and look under "Careers"....Here's a link but it may go dead

Good luck

Thanks Randy,
making this more generic perhaps:
is there a good website / job board advertising external auditor jobs?
I've been using Totaljobs in the UK and I haven't seen a single valid post on there.
much appreciated
