Quality Engineer -South Devon -to 35k

We have a career development opportunity for a Quality Engineer. You will support the internal audit schedule, promote sustained improvement and ensure our client service and manufacturing processes meet Quality standards.


We are a successful, entrepreneurial and profitable, privately held company. We excel in both single and two-shot, low volume, high value, plastic injection moulding with associated tooling. We have the credibility of a blue chip client base particularly in the medical and instrumentation sectors. Based in South Devon we are a small SME with ambitious growth plans. We already punch above our weight as evidenced by our winning the IMechE 2012 Manufacturing Excellence Award for Business Development and Change Management. This important new position arises to support continuing expansion.


- Work as part of the Quality team to ensure all audits are completed on schedule.
- Promote the Quality Planning Process and liaise with other departments.
- Ensure that customer expectations are understood, communicated and realised.
- Identify and lead Quality improvement projects.
- Promote best practice in the use of thorough and robust techniques.
- Identify and implement preventive actions.
- Train others in Quality tools and practices.


- Likely to be educated to HND or degree level in a related discipline.
- Have successfully led and implemented Six Sigma projects.
- Trained as an internal auditor with SQA experience an advantage.
- Use of quality tools such as FMEA, APQP, FAIR, PPAP, 5Y's and 8D's.
- Detailed knowledge of quality systems such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or ISO 13485.
- Experienced in Co-ordinate Measuring Machines.
- You may well have become disillusioned with the corporate environment and will relish joining a dynamic, smaller organisation with the ability to respond quickly.
