    • Undertake the necessary audits, or other suitable reviews of the GQMS, key business processes and project technical needs related to quality (ISO 9001 and ISO 17025)
    • Undertake comprehensive root cause analysis to determine actions to improve the GQMS
    • Build sustainable relationships across all divisions through clear communication and reporting on tasks and initiatives
    • Report on tasks through contribution to Board reports, SOFT reports and audit reports etc


    Key requirements

    • Significant experience in a QA role, with training in, and evidence of conducting audits
    • Good knowledge of design and/or manufacturing processes
    • Good knowledge of verification and validation processes
    • Good knowledge of quality tools for process improvement, planning and problem solving
    • A high level of computer literacy, in particular Microsoft Office
    • Clear verbal and written communication skills
    • A full UK driving licence
    • A full, valid passport ensuring unrestricted travel to and from the UK


    Desirable requirements

    • An Engineering degree or similar qualification in QA
    • Working knowledge, training and experience of any automotive, aerospace or medical QMS
    • Experience of direct involvement with customers on quality related issues


    The successful applicant will be a highly organized self starter with ability to work strategically as well as operationally.  Inquisitive and questioning, the individual in this role will be discreet and diplomatic.  Good attention to detail and clear verbal and written communication skills are essential.



    The role is based at the New Mills site with occasional travel to sites within the UK. Some travel to overseas sites may be required.
