Job description

Our Quality Assurance department is a dynamic cross-functional team that covers many functions, including quality strategy and management, warranty, field quality, recall campaigns and new model validation.

If you want to work in an organisation that will challenge you to take your Quality Assurance career to the next level, Nissan will go there with you. One of our key mid-term business strategies is to raise Nissan into the top class of global automakers in quality. And we're making solid progress.

It’s a high profile function that enjoys involvement in every area of the business. From suppliers and raw materials to the finished vehicle and beyond to post sales customer satisfaction, Quality Assurance has a key role to play. Whether you’re down on the shop floor, visiting suppliers or out in the field assessing post sale quality, you’ll need a good level of technical/engineering ability. Beyond that you need excellent interpersonal skills, confidence and the ability to operate as both a customer, explaining your requirements and ensuring they are met, and supplier, delivering solutions across the business.

Starting: September 2017.
