Job Description for Quality Manager

A quality manager ensures that a company's products meet client or consumer demands. The specific daily duties for quality managers can vary depending on the manager's company; however, they may include directing and advising employees and checking products to ensure their quality throughout the production process. If an item doesn't meet quality standards, the quality manager must catch the mistake and correct it immediately. In addition, a professional in this field meets with a company’s management team to come up with creative, effective ways to manage product quality and the production process. A quality manger also may make crucial decisions such as selecting low-cost but efficient, materials and finding the personnel to help oversee production. Many times, a quality manager pursues feedback from consumers and clients, and they improve product accordingly.

Quality Manager Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Quality Manager?

Quality Manager in Hereford, England: Herefordshire:
"Quiet."
Pros: Beautiful Countryside
Cons: Traffic

Quality Manager in York:
"Life Changing Career."
Must be in tune with your organisation / workforce and understand client requirements, interpret them and set standards via documented procedures and communicate to the entire organisation. Ensure compliance with regular audits and surveillance. Everything must be geared up to meeting customer requirements as a priority. Be resilient to conflicts to production and profit targets at the expense of quality and customer satisfaction and stand your ground when you are right. Manage by facts and present them to back up your case, Can be a very stressful career, but interesting, rewarding and diverse - every day is different and never a dull moment! Emotional intelligence and experience is paramount to succeed.

Quality Manager in Birmingham:
"A Wide Reaching Subject."
Quality is something most people seem to fall into from other roles. It is a fantastic role for getting to know a business and having input into all parts of the business process. It is a bit of a thankless role as the benefits of Quality are not always seen but the amount we spend and when we tell people something cannot be done then we are noticed! I have found it very difficult to move between industries so pick one that you are happy to be in for the long-haul and you can then move between companies. Being a part of audits and being called upon by senior levels for input into meetings means you will get over any confidence issues quickly and there are plenty of learning opportunities that come out of it - document writing and storage skills, auditing, six sigma, lean manufacturing.

Quality Manager in London:
"No impartiality."
Pros: Stress levels.
Cons: Office conditions, no direct contact with the chairman although I am to report to him.

Quality Manager in Sheffield:
"Quality Not Quantity"
Pros: Being able to work with like minded professionals.
Cons: Feeling frustrated about not being able to do my job to my full capabilities due to being put on menial jobs.

Quality Manager in London:
"Small Company"
Working for a small company means you end up wearing a lot of hats, this can become very stressful. Everyone seems to think quality/technical department is responsible for everything
