Job Vacancy: Quality Technician

Department:
Quality Control
Job Title:
Quality Technician
Reporting to:
Lab Production Manager
Location:
Tweed Valley Maltings, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland

Job Description:
Simpsons Malt are the UK’s leading, independent malting company, with more than 150 years of successful supply to brewers and distillers, with a customer range from small craft brewers to multi-national giants.

With a probable interest in science and a wish to use your education in a practical way, this is a chance to be proud of high quality products.

The laboratory at our Berwick site houses a team of technicians who work across the whole of our production process, undertaking testing on the barley and other cereals when they are brought in, in-process testing as they are malted and then finally testing to ensure the malt meets our customers’ specifications.

There is a chance to build a career within the laboratory, or use the knowledge gained to move across to other functions or production operations.

We won’t take just anyone. While science based qualifications would be advantageous, you need to be methodical, calm and detail conscious! Analysis is only half the story; you then need to be able to communicate your results well and potentially work with others to resolve issues and improve quality.  While typically a Monday to Friday role, there is the need to join a rota once fully trained to provide weekend production support.

The successful candidate will receive:

  • A competitive salary and annual bonus (17k to 20k dependent on qualifications and experience)
  • Excellent Pension, Sickness & Life Insurance benefits
  • 31-34 days holiday incl. BH’s

When making an application, make sure we know your reasons for thinking we could be a good match for your skills and interests.
