It depends exactly what their role is, and in what organisation, but in general a quality auditor can expect to spend their days verifying that a company has appropriate processes in place for recording, interpreting, and measuring efficiencies and improvements, that it is meeting the intent of the standards to which it’s committed, and encouraging an understanding of and adherence to best practice wherever possible.
Quality auditors remain in high demand, with expected job openings significantly above the labour market average, and projected to increase past 2020. Organisations across industries, including many of Australia’s largest employers, regularly employ quality auditors to work internally, and specialist quality and risk management firms provide third party QA services. Pathways to employment with certification bodies, subcontracting and consultancy also exist, so there’s no shortage of ways to get hired!
Remuneration varies widely, but established quality auditors working full-time for a large Australian company or certification body can expect a salary substantially above $100,000. Subcontractors generally bill between about $650 and $1,000 per day

Rapid globalisation, the growth of online business, increasing health care spending and a challenging local manufacturing sector are some of the features of Australia’s current economy.
