Quality Assurance Officer - Midlands or North of England

We are excited to announce that, due to strong growth over the Covid-19 pandemic, we are looking to recruit a full time Quality Assurance Officer within our Asbestos Team. The role would suit a pro-active and self-motivated surveyor / analyst who has excellent technical, organisational, and people skills, and is looking to take the next step in their professional development.

Our asbestos technical staff are based throughout the UK. However, the majority of site audits will be required in the Midlands and north of England, with some coverage also required in the central belt of Scotland. The successful candidate will be home based and will plan their own diary under the supervision of the existing Quality Management Team. We are mindful of the travel time that may be associated with this role and will ensure that a Work-Life Balance is achieved on a week by week basis, for all our site based staff.

If you are interested in a rewarding career working for a highly respected, successful and established nationwide company with over 30 years’ trading experience and a “Right First Time” ethos, this is a great opportunity for you!

Roles and Responsibilities

The role would be varied and cover all aspects of day-to-day quality management, including:

  • Scheduling and carrying-out method-witness audits and “5% reinspections” on surveyors and analysts, and reporting your findings to the auditees, Technical and Quality Management Teams
  • Assisting the Quality Management Team with systems and processes to give confidence that client services are carried out in compliance with our ISO 17020 and ISO 17025 accreditations

  • An excellent understanding of Health & Safety with respect to asbestos-related works
  • A flexible approach to working hours, including occasional staying away
  • Strong I.T. literacy (experience of working with TEAMS would be an advantage, but not essential, as full training will be provided)
  • A full UK driving licence

(Further technical training will be offered to an otherwise-exceptional candidate, to bring all technical skill sets up to the required strength).
