One of the UK’s biggest brands is looking for a Quality Manager.

You probably know us best for Carlsberg and Carlsberg Export. But, there's more to us than meets the eye. From Tetley's to Tuborg, San Miguel to Somersby Cider and not forgetting one of our newest brands, Brooklyn. We produce lots of leading brands. We also import premium world beers like Mahou, have an impressive portfolio of cask ales and source specialist wines and spirits from around the globe to delight our customers with. Furthermore, we are proud of our partnership with the UK's best festivals - Glastonbury and Download to name just a couple.

You'll be a guardian of product quality at our Northampton brewery, training teams across the site to adopt a culture of best practice, innovation and continuous improvement. You will have responsibility for Food Safety and Product Quality from raw material throughout production to final product at point of sale. This encompasses the management and control of all systems to fulfil customer, legal and group requirements. You will also support stakeholders and Quality Technicians, driving a culture of accountability, alignment and action.

We are looking for experienced candidates who can contribute to development of best practice within the Group to facilitate sharing and standardisation. Your involvement will focus on ensuring the finished product is of the highest quality, so ideally you'll have a sound quality background in food/beverage manufacturing that demonstrates a strong knowledge of packaging and packaging materials. A familiarity with quality systems and auditing will be essential, as will knowledge of food safety and food hygiene, but you will also need a flexible, hands-on approach plus the communication skills to inspire change in a multi-layered environment.

On top of the culture and career development opportunities that make working with us so rewarding, we offer a flexible benefits scheme, defined contribution pension, generous holidays and a product allowance. So, what are you waiting for? The broader opportunities you crave with a world leader could be yours for the taking.

Applications may be processed prior to the closing date so don’t postpone getting your application submitted.
