Engineering Quality is an area that combines technical engineering expertise with commercial prowess, so you’ll need both to succeed as part of this key team. We look for technical problem-solvers, people at home in an automotive or manufacturing environment who possess a solid understanding of Six Sigma methodology and its application. And because Engineering Quality drives continuous improvement across every area our business, it’s vital our leaders and engineers understand the objectives and processes of other functions, such as manufacturing, supplier management and technical services, and how they work together.
Taking the lead on strategy, targets and analysis, you’ll use your sound engineering knowledge to build strong Engineering Quality agendas, which you’ll reinforce with sound metrics. Driving progress on current model improvement plans and liaising with suppliers for test work, we’ll expect you to support the development of customer and forward model quality operating system processes. And of course, we’ll also expect you to be able to confidently and assertively present your suggestions at all levels and to all areas of the business.
Managing one of our Engineering Quality teams, you’ll develop and lead an intelligent Engineering Quality agenda, resolve and troubleshoot any problems that may arise and work with our manufacturing and production engineering teams to establish Best Practice methodologies. A key stakeholder in cross functional meetings, we’ll look to you to influence process change in other areas of the business, using metrics and data to reinforce your suggestions. And of course, as Group Leader, you’ll act as an inspirational and technically-knowledgeable manager to your team of Engineering Quality engineers, leaders and data analysts.
An innovative thinker, you’ll help to define problems, locate the source and propose sound solutions that are both commercially and technically viable. Driving progress on current model quality improvement plans, and preventing the recurrence of any issues that arise, you’ll support the development of current and forward model quality operating system processes. We’ll also expect you to carry out data analysis and drive problem definition to clearly identify customer concerns.
