The primary role of a QIP Assessor or Auditor is an important one, to assess the safety and quality of services that QIP clients provide. Our assessors and auditors are selected based upon their extensive knowledge and experience of accreditation, certification, and verification of various national frameworks and standards.

Assessors and auditors are the faces of QIP’s accreditation programs for health, disability and community service organisations in Australia.

QIP engages professionals with relevant experience and knowledge in healthcare, community and disability services who have an enthusiasm for quality. As professional peers, assessors and auditors have a unique opportunity to promote continuous quality improvement, while developing their own professional skills and gaining a unique insight into the diverse contexts of health, community and disability service providers across Australia.

The QIP Team is fortunate to have had assessors and auditors who have worked with us for over 20 years, who are committed to being positive change agents in their profession within health services, health systems, and community organisations and care services, including health, disability and human services.

QIP Assessors and Auditors join our contract workforce and are remunerated per assessment. There is no requirement for QIP Assessors or Auditors to ‘give up’ their current working commitments, as assessment commitments fit within professional and personal life. As often or as little as desired, so long as it meets the minimum requirement of annual assessments and audits.
