Job Details

Quality Controller

Job ref: 62718 | c. £23,000 | North West

The company

You will be working for a well-established, family-run business which prides themselves on creating and supplying the highest quality products to retailers, foodservice and specialist outlets throughout the UK.

The job

As Quality Controller, you will assist in maintaining the quality and HACCP systems and make sure they are followed in the factory whilst undertaking CCP monitoring as required. You will also identify improvements to current ways of working and quality procedures and bring them to the Technical Manager’s attention.

In addition to this you will:

  • Carry out glass / foreign body audits
  • Carry out product quality & quantity (volumetric) checks
  • Complete, check and maintain all due diligence production quality records
  • Carry out weekly calibration of probes, scales, tanks, and other equipment
  • Pre-operation hygiene checks
  • Prepare and carry out routine swabbing (Listeria, ATP, Environmental and Allergen)
  • Raise non-conformances for out of specification finished product, ATP swabs, ingredients and production issues
  • Train production staff on quality procedures
  • Assist in factory trials of new products and first production
  • Assist in preparation for third party and external audits

Your experience

To be successful, you must have previous experience in a quality assurance or quality control role within food manufacturing.

Whilst not vital, a degree in a food science or food technology subject plus HACCP qualifications would be highly desirable.

You should have an eye for detail, be a team player and equally work under your own initiative.
