This is a great small innovative and growing engineering business who have developed products and solutions for a number of industries which are set for big growth this year. As an autonomous part of a larger group, they are well funded and have an excellent track record of developing new products and winning new contracts. Within the last two months they have secure a major multi-million-pound contract and look set for a positive Q2 of 2020 despite the restrictions of Covid-19.


Joining the QHSE team you will take a hands-on role in ensuring product quality of all incoming parts and components. You will be

* Travel to suppliers where necessary (mainly UK based) to tackle quality issues and work towards a seamless flow from suppliers into the business


This is ideally suited to a time-served mechanical engineer (or equivalent) who has good hands on practical experience within a machining, assembly or manufacturing environment. As the role is heavily involved in Quality Inspection you must be able to demonstrate strong dimensional inspection skills.
