  • Support continuous improvement activities as required.
  • Take an active role in the reduction of non-conformance.

About you

We would expect you to be a bit of a perfectionist, but also be practical and flexible to meet business needs. You will thrive in a fast-paced working environment, juggling a wide range of tasks. More specifically you will have:

  • Good communication skills both verbally and written
  • Be a team player in attitude and values supporting the Quality Team Leader
  • Work to tight timescales whilst maintaining quality standards
  • The courage and confidence to challenge product progression in the event of discovering a non-conformance
  • A positive mindset and good judgement skills
  • Good mechanical understanding and ability to read and understand technical drawings
  • Previous experience or knowledge of electrical inspection standards, preferably IPC-610 and/or IPC-620
  • Great attention to detail, the ability to produce and proof-read documents to a high standard
  • Ensure all tasks are conducted safely and report any hazards and near misses.
  • Actively promote a safe working culture within the business.
  • Develop oneself in line with the CMR company values; Humble, Ambitious, People-Focused and Fair & Responsible

The Package

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package including non-contributory pension, private healthcare and a bonus scheme. In addition, you’ll be joining a company with a fabulous culture of ambition, creativity and teamwork. CMR is committed to promoting a diverse, open and collaborative work environment – a place where we can be ourselves and succeed on merit. We believe an environment like this is where ideas can truly flourish and balanced with a healthy dose of fun, it ensures that our people stay and develop.
