Quality Development Manager

The Silentnight business is entering a new phase of development of product and material knowledge. In addition to the quality business agenda, the need to substantiate our product claims and ensure full legal compliance is placing greater demands on the existing team.
To help support the existing team we are looking to recruit for the new position of Quality Development Manager to be based in Barnoldswick.
Candidates will be of university or degree standard education, preferably in a science based subject, or possibly with an engineering background. Experience in a quality role is preferable.
The role will require the successful candidate to lead practical and analytical projects, as well as support the Quality Assurance and Laboratory Managers in the day-to-day management of the three Quality Departments, which are Q.A., Returns and the Laboratory.
Strong analytical and communication skills are essential, as is attention to detail. The successful candidate must be able to work as part of a team but, at times, will also need to be self-sufficient.

If you feel you have the experience and qualities we are looking for, please apply in writing, stating current salary details to:  Elaine Jakes, HR Manager, Silentnight Brands, PO Box 9,  Barnoldswick, Lancashire BB18 6BL.  
Email: elaine.jakes@silentnight.co.uk
Closing date for applications is 10 June 2016.
