Job Purpose

The role is primarily to manage the internal ISO/quality audit schedule. This will include auditing ISO 9001:2015 (quality) across the business. All non conformity's and opportunities for improvement raised during the audits will be logged on a central system and it will be the responsibility of the quality auditor to not only update this log but also manage the resolution of every non conformance, working with Managers and Supervisors to come to satisfactory conclusions and also auditing that in practice, these solutions are being carried out effectively. This role is all about continual improvement with the role holder being a key asset in helping the business not just meet but exceed its aim in delivering a quality and safe service.

Whilst operational quality will remain the focus of this role, there will also be opportunities to branch out into auditing and managing compliance within the pharmaceutical quality system.

Due to the nature of the business, this department is also heavily involved in information governance and data protection. Experience of ISO 27001:2013 and more generalised information governance & data integrity requirements are desirable although full, on the job training shall be given to accommodate this aspect of the role. Knowledge or experience working in the medical device sector would also be desirable although not mandatory to fulfil this position.

The ideal candidate shall work closely with the Quality Manager, on other audit requirements such as management reviews, external ISO audits with our audit partner NQA and external MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency) GxP inspections.

The ideal candidate will need to be a team player but also confident at working independently and able to display a level of tact and consideration which will be required when dealing with potentially difficult issues arising from audit. They must also be approachable, eloquent and pragmatic - working with staff across the business to resolve any problems which may arise. Good literary skills will be required as each audit conducted will need to be written up in a report, in a clear but detailed (where necessary) way. Good organisational and planning skills are also key in carrying out this role effectively.
