What qualifications do I need to be a CQC inspector? | QCS

Hi there,

I have worked in care now several years and would like to ask what qualifications do I need to apply to be a CQC inspector. I have worked in some homes where the care standard was poor and I have contacted the CQC and they have investigated.

I would really like to work for the CQC but how do I go about this?

Thank you.
