This vacancy is the first stage within the development of our future Management Teams and considered crucial within our aim to increase overall skills within the company. After a period of time (minimum of 6 months) the successful candidate(s) will then be considered as possible applicants to move to other key areas within the business, e.g. Operations, Technical, Commercial and Sales. Ultimately these roles can lead to future management positions within the various departments onsite and are considered crucial to expanding the breadth of knowledge within these functional areas.

The person(s) appointed will support the Quality Manager and Shift Skills Development Managers in their monitoring and verification of quality adherence, specific to production and process procedures within the manufacturing areas. They will fundamentally ensure that the specified and achievable quality standards from the various production routes on site are always maintained.

Expectation of role: -

· To verify and validate that manufactured product is produced and passed to the next routing stage at the correct quality and expected specification.

· A “hands on” role requiring a conscientious approach to operating and maintaining the quality inspection and assurance processes and procedures in an organized manner and conducted within the appropriate test environment and prescribed protocol.

· This is a technical and analytic role and therefore requires a relevant work history or appropriate Scientific, Engineering or Technical qualifications to Degree Level or equivalent.

· Equally important is to be a team player with a can-do attitude and a collaborative mindset to fix and make it right rather than just finding a fault or reporting a failure.

· This is a shift aligned role and follows the same shift pattern as our production teams, which is based on 2 days at 12 hrs followed by 2 nights at 12 hours and 4 days off.

· Training will be provided in Quality Systems, Statistical Process Control and lean manufacturing during the first secondment, with future training dependent on the dep’t assigned to.

  • Verification of the production processes with independent responsibility for control of quality specifications.
  • Validating all shift quality analysis reporting by implementing ‘spot check’ activity and recording.
  • Assist in the Shift Training required of new starters to rapidly enhance their appreciation of required product quality.
  • Inform Quality Manager and Shift Management of any occurrence or foreseeable occurrence likely to cause an issue with specified product quality.
  • Ensure compliance with all company policies and procedures whilst maintaining a high standard of housekeeping. Specifically, the 5-core company mission focus areas:
