Who should conduct internal audits? 

Due to auditing being a specialised skill not everyone can conduct internal audits.  Long before the internal audits are even required, you should select staff that would be suitable to get training around auditing. 

This may be employees with higher levels of education or qualified professional backgrounds.  The internal auditor should have strong analytical and critical thinking skills, as well as being a good communicator.  

Auditors should also be:

  • fair
  • objective
  • confidential
  • good communicators
  • co-operative
  • customer-focused
  • ethical
  • analytical
  • good judges
