Quality auditing and compliance are both incredibly important areas of any business’s operations. An individual or team will oversee the way the business works and/or what the business offers to ensure the quality of products, services and business operations are at the highest level of compliance.
Quality auditing can relate to ensuring the quality of products and services within a business. Professionals in this role work closely with an organisation to make sure quality standards are being met. Those working in Compliance are generally known as compliance officers or compliance managers. Like auditors, they can work both directly with a company or contracted out. This is a common profession in government bodies, and enjoy working in a range of different industries and workplaces.
The benefit of a career in quality auditing and/or compliance is that professionals with skills and experience in quality assurance and compliance are required in a multitude of industries, particularly fast-growing industries like manufacturing, medical and healthcare, supply chain and transport and finance.
