What we do

Production Quality Assurance is integrated into the Production Process. We ensure our cars complies to the quality standards, so meeting the need of our customers.
Our role is to prevent mistakes and defects on our product from getting to the customer, ensuring the vehicles are fit for purpose and Right First Time (RFT).
This is performed by various inspections and performance testing of the vehicle at multiple stages within the production system.
The function of the Production Quality Assurance team is created around a DMAIC process; Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control.
Our aim is to shift left from defect detection and rejection to defect prevention by focusing on quality at earlier points within the process.

What we look for

Within the department we require people with integrity, and a Quality focus in everything they do. Attention to detail is key and an ability to take a customer viewpoint. It is important that team members can see the bigger picture and can be pragmatic whilst driven to delivering the highest levels of quality into our product. Excellent people skills are key to success.
