Quality Assurance Auditor, Corby

A fantastic opportunity for a driven and motivated individual to join our brilliant business at a very exciting time.

As we grow, we want to ensure that we continue to develop a reputation for being at the forefront of the industry and this role is crucial in the development and success of our new site.

Reporting to the QA Manager and working closely with the wider site functions, our Quality Assurance team will ensure product safety, quality & legality whilst protecting the reputation of the business.

What’s involved?

You will be responsible for completing audits to monitor the adherence to the procedures that form our Quality System helping to ensure that products leaving the bakery meet legal requirements, quality standards and customer expectations.  

You will liaise with a number of internal departments to complete audits, agree and monitor corrective action plans and then ensure plans are adhered to and followed through.

About You

You will be an excellent communicator with the ability to lead with authority but also maintain good relations with colleagues across business functions. You will have a proactive approach to problem solving and be organised and thorough in every task you undertake.

You may be a graduate in a food or science related degree or already have some professional experience from a food manufacturing environment. This opportunity will provide you with further training in Food Safety, HACCP and relevant auditing qualifications.

Ideally you will have attained a CIEH qualification in Health & Safety, Food Safety.

During the training period you will be working day based shifts. Thereafter, you will be part of a 4 on, 4 off shift pattern, which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round.

Why Jacksons?

Jacksons is part of William Jackson Food Group, a sixth generation family business founded by William Jackson when he opened his first shop in Hull in September 1851. Today we have a portfolio of five food businesses in distinct, yet complimentary market areas, employing over 2,000 people. We also have a pub!

We have occupied the current site in Hull since 1907 and we now have 3 bread plants in our main bakery. We recently developed a second bakery, also at our site in Hull, which specialises in premium quality roll, wrap and ciabatta production.

We specialise in the supply of bread and other carriers to the sandwich manufacturers, foodservice and export channels, and in 2012 we launched our consumer facing brand “Jackson’s Yorkshire’s Champion”.

Our brand-new site in Northamptonshire is one of the largest investments our Group has ever made, and this will allow us to realise our ambition of being the best at what we do.

2018 is an exciting time to join us!
