Job description:

As the quality program manager, youll work to implement and continuously improve the ISO 9001 Quality System (QMS) across multiple manufacturing sites in the Southeast USA.

Primary work location: Orangeburg County SC near Eutawville with travel in the Southeast USA (paid for by the employer)

Expect competitive base pay + comprehensive benefits; details listed below.

What youll be doing:

  • Initially focus on rolling out the ISO 9001 QMS System in collaboration with Plant Managers across the division.
  • Offer strategic insights and technical expertise for quality metrics and improvement initiatives.
  • Aid department supervisors by providing guidance and support on quality issues, resolving quality issues, ensuring adherence to internal and external QMS requirements.
  • Implement best practices using continuous improvement techniques to achieve corporate and plant-level objectives effectively.
  • Oversee internal quality audits and provide guidance to plants after they are certified.
  • Establish and promote global consistency within the QMS.
