Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Job Introduction

DACBeachcroft has an exciting opportunity for an experienced Quality Auditor to join our Practice Governance and Risk team on a full-time, permanent, hybrid basis in our Leeds office.

As a business, our aim is to ensure that service levels are monitored effectively across all areas.  We strive for continuous improvement in our services and, in particular in those parts of the business where efficient process is a key element in service delivery.  

The Quality Audit Team is part of the Practice Governance & Risk Group and consists of 12 dedicated auditors who are responsible for managing compliance and risk within the firm. Part of the Group's remit is to monitor quality in all groups and functions throughout the firm and the evaluation of quality is carried out predominantly by the Quality Audit Team. They do this by carrying out evaluations of files against a set criteria. The team works across all locations and has the flexibility to work both remotely and on site as and when required.

By regularly evaluating files including for external clients (“the Clients”), we can ensure a continual improvement in the service the firm offers. We can identify where further training may be required and ensure that corrective actions are taken to eliminate the cause and re-occurrence of non-conformities.

All audits carried out by the Quality Audit Team follow the same detailed process to ensure consistency and accuracy.  For each audit, one member of the Quality Audit Team will be assigned the role of 'lead auditor'. The lead auditor will be responsible for the running of the audit, from making the initial contact with the audit sponsor through to delivering the results and agreeing corrective action.
