You are part of a dedicated Quality Inspection team, responsible for ensuring that:
• quality process controls are properly engineered, based on ISO:9001 rules, on Customer
Specific Requirements, on the feasibility analysis and PFMEA results.
• quality process controls are in place and are operating as specified to ensure the expected
quality, operating in a safe, clean, and well-ordered environment (5S Approach).
• Inspection under direct quality staff responsibility at all stages of production against the
design specification are carry out.
This is a hands-on position, mainly related to inspection, where flexibility and a desire to constantly
improve are the most relevant soft skills in order to assure a systematic company improvement.
The role requires a strong cross functional relationship to communicate key issues effectively on a
