Closing date: 12th December 2019

Collins Aerospace is a leader in technologically advanced and intelligent solutions for the global aerospace and defense industry. As a result of an internal global promotion, the business has retained Forde May Consulting to recruit a new Quality Director for their site in Kilkeel.  This facility manufactures seating for commercial aircraft globally and their customer base includes airlines, leasing companies, and OEMs.

The business is seeking to recruit a high calibre Quality professional to lead the quality function in a progressive and fast-moving world-class manufacturing environment.

Managing an 80+ person team, you will be responsible for building relationships through regular customer contact and ensuring demanding quality standards in the safety-conscious aerospace industry are met.

As part of the senior management team, you will be very actively involved in spearheading and fostering the ongoing drive for continuous improvement, using a variety of leading-edge business improvement initiatives.

You will have more than 5 years’ experience of a similar role in a large, growing and dynamic manufacturing organisation.  Your rounded practical experience will be complemented by an academic degree in a relevant discipline.  Commercial acumen and strength of character are as important as ‘technical’ quality skills.  It is essential to have experience of business improvement tools gained in a production facility that has to comply with regulatory standards for its products.
