FILLED: Head of quality
Sewtec is looking for an experienced head of quality to join our team and help us achieve our ongoing growth ambitions.
To emphasise the experience required, our systems are all low-volume, unique, special purpose and designed to customer requirements rather than high-volume catalogue products.
Reporting into our production director, you’ll hold responsibility for assuring quality across the business, ownership of the Quality Management System (QMS) and the day-to-day management of Safety, Health and the Environment (SHE).
Working in collaboration with other senior figures in the business is a key part of this head of quality role. You’ll liaise with our head of purchasing to ensure effective quality monitoring of externally provided processes, products and services (including supplier audits, assessments and approvals), as well as with our head of build to ensure effective quality monitoring of internal assembly. You’ll also work with our head of production to monitor the quality of internally manufactured parts.
Day to day, our head of quality will manage the parts inspection team’s workload, priorities and ongoing development needs. Coaching, motivating and challenging employees in the importance of quality and driving continuous improvement activities will also be high on your agenda.
Safety and health will sit under your remit, and you’ll be tasked with monitoring our ongoing performance against all agreed objectives taking corrective and preventative action as necessary to avoid re-occurrences. You’ll also ensure we’re compliant with safety and health requirements, identifying best evolving practice to protect our people and visitors, taking responsibility as the company’s “competent person”.
We’re seeking a head of quality who has experience of working in a similar role at a previous organisation and has management experience with a proven track record in this type of work with an impeccable practical understanding of ISO9001/14000.
Having relevant and current understanding of health and safety legislation supported with the minimum of a current NEBOSH qualification is a must for this role.
Our head of quality will possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, with the confidence to speak with customers, suppliers and fellow colleagues. Like the whole Sewtec team, you’ll be willing to roll your sleeves up, get stuck into any challenge and have the desire to deliver high levels of customer service.
