Whether it’s a Backhoe Loader, Wheeled Excavator or Teletruck forklift, innovative design and market-leading build quality means our machines are always in demand wherever there’s work to be done. Now with our Hydrogen engines, we’re again leading innovation in our industry—join us for a career where all the action is.
About the role
Are internal processes delivering the very best they can? Are our suppliers performing at the very limits of SLAs? And–crucially–are customers satisfied? As a Senior Quality Engineer, you’ll take a creative approach to these questions as you strive for better. Better ways of working, better deals and, ultimately, better JCB products.
You’ll establish a culture of continuous improvement driven by intelligent KPIs and incentivised by the promotion of Quality achievements throughout the organisation. Motivating and mentoring your team, you’ll lead them in deploying a Quality Strategy that you–working closely with the Quality Manager–will develop.
At JCB, we still live by the motto “Jamais content”. Coined by one of our founders, it means never being content to rest on our laurels and always pushing for better. That commitment to quality powers our growth to this day–and it’ll do the same for your career.
You might join us from elsewhere in the automotive industry or a different engineering background. Whatever your story so far, you’ll have extensive knowledge of Quality tools (like APQP, PPAP, *D, ISO9001, DFMEA, PFMEA) and be able to apply it in a fast-paced environment. You’ll also have strong problem solving and data analysis skills within an engineering context, backed by an HNC (or above) engineering qualification.
Just as important as your technical skills is your ability to lead your team and develop their skills. You’ll be a great communicator who can get everyone on board with the idea of striving for better. Whether presenting ideas to senior stakeholders or informally to your team, you’ll be able to get the support you need for your ideas to flourish. That’s how you’ll show yourself to be a Senior Quality Engineer ready to take full advantage of all the opportunities here at JCB.
What’s in it for you?
To say thank you for your hard work, we will work with you to support your career progression and development. We will also provide a competitive salary, company pension scheme, medical insurance and dental care schemes, access to the company’s healthy living centre, 33 days annual leave and flexibility around daily start and finish times.
You will also have access to JCB’s Reward Hub – giving you fantastic savings across a huge range of high street retailers, as well as access to exclusive company perks such as our Cycle to Work Scheme.
