Current Roles

Director of QHSE and Process Improvement
Salary: Six figures plus benefits

Our Client

Our client is a precision engineering company supplying into the military and civils markets in the UK, US, Europe, and Asia. They manufacture highly complex components at high volume, plus offer aftermarket support and full product life cycle capability from product development through to aftermarket supply chain management.

The business is privately owned and will be doubling in size over the next few years (from existing contracts). Consequently, the board seeks to appoint the best possible Director of QHSE & Process Improvement. This person will take the Company on a journey, changing the cultural environment to enable continuous improvement – a shift from reactive to proactive.

The Role

Reporting into the Managing Director, the Director of QHSE & Process Improvement is to implement a cultural transformation to bring Continuous Improvement to the core of everything our client does, and to ensure that structural and regulatory compliance is world leading.

Of fundamental importance is the new Director’s passion for continuous improvement and ability to develop and implement new CI systems and processes, as part of a cultural transformation. No doubt, they will bring first-hand experience of a world class CI environment.

The new Director will oversee extremely capable Quality Managers, so doesn’t need to be a compliance expert themselves – just have a strong understanding and appreciation of what they do.

You will enjoy working under pressure, in this fast-paced, highly technical manufacturing environment, and have excellent leadership and communication skills to lead the cultural transformation.

The new Director will be required on site 5 days per week, so this role will require a relocation (rather than if you live outside of the geography.)

If you a self-starter with a natural drive to succeed and your skills and experience fit this opportunity, please attach your CV to this application.
