Exclusive to Well Placed HR

Senior QA Manager (Medical Manufacturing) - Cornwall - £87,000 + Excellent company performance linked bonus  

On first glance, the odds might appear to be against us on this recruitment project. A highly technical role requiring a suitably qualified individual with significant skills and experience gained in the medical manufacturing sector. And based in Cornwall…

But the reality is brighter and our optimism is high. The role represents an exceptional opportunity for an ambitious QA professional. An opportunity to join an undisputed leader in their field, with global reach and with almost limitless potential for career development in a business with envious staff retention and development credentials. A role that offers an impressive remuneration package, a lucrative bonus, and excellent benefits. And it’s based in Cornwall one of the most beautiful and sought after counties to live in the UK (we admit, we’re a little biased). 

Well Placed HR are delighted to have been exclusively engaged to source a Senior Quality Assurance Manager for this precision medical manufacturing business. A role of significant responsibility and of pivotal importance to the site team, the successful candidate will lead the way in overseeing high quality manufacturing operations as well as mentoring and developing an experienced QA team. 

Reporting to the Director of QA, the successful candidate will ensure high quality, compliant manufacturing output from a facility operating in a largely clean-room environment. The role will entail maintaining and developing strict quality control processes, working closely with colleagues and department heads throughout the site, reporting on findings and potential improvements. 

We’re going to save on the technical details of the role because our client has produced a very detailed and informative role specification to be shared with potentially suited candidates. 

The needle in a hay stack we’re searching for: 

Suited candidates will need to be educated to degree level in a relevant field (chemistry, quality management, biology etc.), and will possess a masters degree in a similar or relatable subject. Previous experience gained within a medical, healthcare or pharmaceutical manufacturing environment will be a pre-requisite, ideally with a sound understanding of European medical device regulations. International experience and ideally certified internal/external audit experience would be a strong desirable. 

This is a communication focussed role and the Senior QA Manager will regularly liaise with their own team, department heads and senior management teams in both the UK and overseas. The business is highly technology focussed so good all round software exposure and IT aptitude essential. 

To apply for this rare and unique opportunity, and to request a detailed role specification, please contact Carly Kellow or Dan Saunders quoting reference CKDS9947 as soon as possible - our client is motivated to appoint quickly and shortlisted candidates can expect a fluid recruitment process. All enquiries will be treated in complete confidence.
