Senior Quality Engineer – NPI
About the role
Working as part of the Operations Team, you will apply quality and engineering expertise to lead the delivery of off-tool, off-process parts and final part approval to ensure the smooth launch of new products in applications ranging from small portable power devices to motive and industrial power systems.
You will work closely with our Project Delivery Teams and through our supply chain, to ensure APQP is embedded into product designs and our production system.
The role also provides engineering expertise to the identification, selection and management of suppliers / sub-contractors for product prototypes and series production. This will include the transfer and validation of our technology set-up, production and test capabilities to either in-house or external manufacturing partners to achieve cost effective volume quality product delivery.
You will hold a BEng, BSc (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline, or possess a relevant non-degree level qualification alongside substantial and pertinent industrial experience. Typically, you will have around 5 years of relevant industrial experience post completion of your degree.
You will be able to demonstrate your ability to plan and deliver technically complex products from prototype through to production, using APQP tools in line with IATF16949 or AS9100.
Ideally you will have experience of building strong relationships with both OEM customers and the supply chain in the automotive or aerospace industry.
It is key to us that you have a commercial mindset and the ability to work with a flexible and solutions focused approach, in an agile environment. You must also be able to work collaboratively with a cross-functional team alongside both technical and non-technical colleagues. As such, excellent communication skills are vital.
