The company

This is a fantastic opportunity to join an innovative and forward-thinking business that is constantly evolving and developing their products to stay at the forefront of their sector and maintain their reputation for producing an exciting product range.

The job

We are currently looking for a QA Technician to complement a passionate, friendly, and enthusiastic technical team in a busy manufacturing environment.

The role will be split between around 50% laboratory time, and 50% time in and around the production facility.

Core duties:

  • Laboratory duties such as conducting product testing and shelf-life testing, stock control, record keeping and equipment verification.
  • Support the maintenance of the companies Food Safety Quality Management System (FSQMS) and BRC compliance.
  • Conducting hygiene inspections.
  • Conducting environmental monitoring such as ATP swabs, micro swabs, and air quality sampling.
  • Conducting monthly Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) audits.

  • Train and coach manufacturing employees in company quality procedures.

Your experience

Ideally educated to a degree level in a food science/technology related discipline, you will possess previous experience in a quality assurance related role within food manufacturing. This may be from a university placement.

You will ideally possess food laboratory experience (e.g., titration, microbiological techniques, calibration), but full food laboratory training can be given if required.

Additional qualifications such as Food Safety, Food Hygiene, Internal Auditing and HACCP are all an advantage.
