Who is our client?

We’re working with an established food manufacturing business which supplies a broad range of market leading, innovative products into a number of major retailers. They now have a number of openings in their Technical team for QA Technicians to work on a day/split shift or night shift basis.

The role requirements

Reporting to the Technical Manager you will be part of a team responsible for ensuring food safety, quality and legal standards are adhered to at all times.

This is a ‘hands-on’ role so you’ll be monitoring food hygiene, traceability, allergens and GMP across a busy, fast paced food production environment as well as supporting operations and technical team in resolving any quality issues.

You will also train colleagues in food safety/quality standards, participate in factory trials and be responsible for managing customer complaints as and when they arise.

Shift patterns available: Rotating Shift (0600-1400, 1400-2200) - Nights (1000-0600)

What sort of people are we looking for?

You will have previous experience of working in a similar QA role in food manufacturing or you could be a recent graduate with a food related degree looking to begin a career in the technical/quality field.

You will have an understanding of current food legislation, safety standards, BRC and HACCP.

Proactive in your approach, you will have strong communication skills and will be able to engage with and influence/challenge colleagues at all levels.

You will be somebody who is organised and can prioritise their workload in order to meet deadlines.
