James Gibb
Managing Director - AJA Registrars Limited

IMS Auditor


AJA Registrars are a uniquely independent third party registrar operating across a global network. They approached Newman Stewart when they needed to recruit an experienced IMS Auditor to complement their team to enable them to meet their own client expectations and importantly grow their business.

The requirement

AJA wished to recruit a fully qualified IMS Auditor to audit their clients along the M4 corridor. The candidate would need to be Lead Audit qualified in QMS, EMS and OHSAS standards and also demonstrate previous experience working for a third party certification company. As well as the required audit experience the candidate would need to demonstrate a full suite of soft skills, as a significant part of the role was to consult and advise clients as well as providing audit services.

The solution

After a thorough consultative meeting at the AJA offices a full Search and Advertised campaign was agreed. Newman Stewart identified a long list of candidates from appropriate companies and submitted a fully qualified shortlist for AJA to review. Of the three candidates selected for interview, two were deemed suitable and AJA were delighted to offer the role which was promptly accepted.

The outcome

Newman Stewart successfully placed a candidate with AJA Registrars and the two companies have continued to develop their relationship. AJA recently conducted the first audit of Newman Stewart’s newly implemented ISO9001 Quality Management System.
