ob Title: Quality Lead
Salary: £35,000 – £37,500, dependant on skills.
Hours: Monday – Thursday: 8:00am – 4:30pm
Friday: 8:00am – 1:00pm

Our client is an SME based in Small Heath, Birmingham. With primarily two manufacturing product lines.
⦁ Self-Sealing Valves (and various ancillary components) used in the braking systems of Heavy Goods Vehicles.
⦁ Control Linkages used in Off Highway Yellow Goods.
They have both a machining section and an assembly section on site and machine the majority of the components in our finished products. They hold ISO9001 and ISO14001 Certification.

Job Role:

There is currently no dedicated Quality Manager/Engineer on site, the Quality role has been done by a combination of the two Directors with the ownership of quality being given to the operators that are doing the work.
They are looking for someone who is able to step in and take over the role and give it the 100% focus it deserves.

The below list detail what will be the primary focus of the role:

⦁ Ownership of ISO9001 and ISO14001 Re-Qualification.
⦁ Primary Quality Contact for Customers, dealing with any quality issues that arise
⦁ Supporting the production team in closing off any avenues for internal quality defects.
⦁ Auditing our Quality Procedures to ensure adherence.
⦁ Supporting the teams that inspect incoming products from Supplier and Sub-Contractors and monitoring the quality of the products received. This will include ensuring remedial actions are put in place where required.

With each of the above tasks there is the opportunity for a successful applicant to tweak our processes and make the role their own.
While not all of these are required. A successful applicant should have a selection of the following skills:

⦁ Previous experience of Quality management in a factory environment.
⦁ Experience running internal Audits.
⦁ Experience Facilitating ISO Recertification.
⦁ Computer literate and ability to use Microsoft programs.
⦁ Experience reading and understanding technical drawings.
⦁ Experience of the processes that they will be exposed to;
⦁ Turning,
⦁ Assembly,
⦁ Leak Testing,
⦁ Plating.
⦁ Ability to work with and motivate staff from both the leadership team and the shop floor.

Desirable Traits
⦁ Again, this isn’t a fixed list but an indication of the kind of personality traits that we are looking for as a company.
⦁ Positive outlook with a drive to personally improve.
⦁ Takes pride in their work. Wants the work they are responsible for to be of the correct quality.
⦁ A desire to help and develop the people around them.
⦁ Willing to turn their hand to jobs that need to doing that may fall out of their specific role.
⦁ Good practical solver.

As a small company there is an expectation, specifically with the senior team which the successful applicant will be part of, that if necessary, staff will pitch in to help with unexpected issues that crop up.
They try wherever possible to be a supportive employer and so will flex to support staff who have personal issues. They are also keen to help develop staff, so they are able to meet their full potential.
They try their hardest to run a ‘no blame’ culture. What that means in reality is that when something goes wrong, the focus is not on who did something wrong but why it was able to go wrong and to attempt to address the issues that led to it so as to prevent reoccurrence.
