Job Description

The McLaren engine assembly team in Shoreham is seeking a quality technician, to support the senior quality engineer in the assurance and improvement of the business processes.

Job Description

Working a day shift pattern (circa 08:00-16:00, Mon-Fri, 37.5 hrs per week), the successful applicant will provide quality assurance support to the engine assembly and end-of-line teams in escalating and resolving quality issues as they occur, as well as co-ordinating containment activities in the event of escapes of poor quality to the customer.

The quality technician must be able to communicate well with people at all levels; they will be working closely with the other business functions, and will be required to present KPI reports to the customer from time to time.

The successful candidate will be expected to participate in and occasionally lead the team in root cause analysis activities; some previous experience in using problem solving tools would be an advantage, but is not essential as full training will be given.

Some administration duties are also required.
