Auditors should have great problem solving and analytical skills. Research, planning and excellent time management skills would also be advantageous.
Make sure that they have:
- The right qualifications and a few years of experience already within the industry as this job role holds a lot of responsibility.
- The questions below are quite broad and general, you can go much more in depth depending which stage of the interview process you are conducting and what industry your company is a part of.
Interviews naturally breed nerves, so the first part of your interview should aim to make the candidate feel comfortable speaking with you, you’ll get much more information out of them and a better sense of the person they are if they feel like they can trust the environment they are in.
To do this you can ask some fun and interesting questions linked to the role, they should be open ended and encourage conversation. A good place to start is with behavioural questions.
