Production Quality Inspector (26738)

to £35k plus benefits

Precision devices, tolerances, microscopy, lab environment

Join a Cambridge tech company ramping up production and assist them in ensuring high quality manufacture of precision small-scale devices. You’ll be involved pre-production, assessing components vs specification, and post-production assessing device quality and comparing to clients’ requirements. This is a laboratory rather than “shop floor” or industrial environment.

You will either have previous quality control experience in a manufacturing environment, or otherwise be able to demonstrate the necessary skills and interest to take on such a role. Training will be provided.

Prerequisites include, and your CV will demonstrate:

  • An understanding of mechanical (CAD) drawings, including tolerances
  • Use of optical equipment (microscopy), since device components are at most cm scale and may include high-precision moving parts
  • Use of hand tools, measuring tools, gauge R&R
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, both to communicate with colleagues and internal partners on a technical level, and to read and write technical documentation to a high standard
  • Good fundamental mathematics (measurements, arithmetic)
  • Computer literacy including use of Microsoft Office and similar programs.
  • Motivation, resourcefulness, and good collaboration and communication skills.

This is a permanent, full time role based in a laboratory environment on green campus-style grounds close to Cambridge. The role comes with a competitive salary, with benefits, including healthcare, bonuses and free lunches. The company is family-friendly and offers enhanced maternity and paternity leave.
