My client is one of the fastest growing defence firms in the UK with a multinational presence.

The other half of the job is Project Quality, supporting Project managers with the Quality Assurance and compliance of projects, providing hands on quality engineering support for the business winning, engineering and post contract award delivery teams.

Due to the rapid expansion plans of this organisation the scope and opportunity to progress and develop in this role is outstanding. They need someone with a lot of energy, enthusiasm and someone that can bring a forward thinking and innovative mind to the table.

You will be expected to provide strategic direction and leadership as well as guidance on delivery of best practice in QA/QC. You will also lead the implementation of audit effective management systems and work with others to identify appropriate metrics with regular reviews to improve performance.

  • Experience with government agencies, particularly the UK MoD procurement and contracting processes.
  • Experience in project and product management.
  • Experience in project start-up and project initiation phases.
  • Knowledge of military and aerospace specifications would be an advantage.
  • Knowledge of Quality Engineering protocols, statistical tools, methodology and continuous improvement techniques.
  • Excellent multi-tasking, analytical and decision-making skills with the ability to troubleshoot, identify root causes and systematically solve problems.
  • Demonstrated leadership and managerial skills
  • Capable of managing multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Be eligible for UK MoD SC clearance

What's in it for you:

You will be working for a company that is at the forefront of technological innovation within their industry and as their presence grows in the UK, they want to recruit talented individuals to build a cohesive and diverse group on numerous projects. They offer Competitive salary packages (Up to £50,000), flexible working hours, health care options, life cover, family friendly policies and a range of additional benefits including salary sacrifice schemes, discounts, access to Learning and Development tools and support for yours and your family's health and wellbeing.
