Job Description

If you have got to the top of the tree within your department and are looking around for your next challenge then this could be it!

Our client is looking for an experienced QA Manager who can add value to their business and the team by going that extra mile. This is the next step up for you, reporting into the Senior Technical Manager on site. There is a small team of QAs who will be looking to you for direction and mentoring.

This business believes fervently in ensuring that each and every member of staff has a "Right First Time " approach. In order to facilitate this, you as QA Lead will need to ensure that your team and the factory are all fully trained and competent in every area of the job.

Obviously, there will occasionally be slips in that pursuit of perfection, but as long as you are competent in immediately addressing the root cause of any mistakes so that the same errors are not made again then that is all we can ask for.

You will have a very personable nature. You are not the sort of character who enjoys being deskbound. This is an interactive role and we need someone who will develop relationships with every person in the business. This is as much for your good as for the business's. Build relationships across all disciplines - it's much easier to fix things when you have everybody on side!

The role of Lead QA is all encompassing - from managing the NCR, to hosting 3rd party audits, to coordinating taste panels and product assessments - no two days will ever be the same and you will love that.

If this sounds like the sort of job that you can imagine being your next move (and you have experience in a technical function within the food manufacturing industry), then send in your details, we would be very interested to hear from you.
