Wellingborough Depot
We’re looking for a food quality control officer to join the team in our Wellingborough depot. If you can bring us the experience we need, this is a great opportunity to develop and make sure we’re consistently delivering the highest standard of products to our customers across the UK.
As a quality control officer, we’ll look for you to inspect our own brand products to make sure that they meet our quality and safety standards.

* take action where products don’t meet requirements to make sure poor quality products are dealt with promptly and efficiently
* build reports documenting product deficiencies to send back to suppliers
* maintain systems and processes for recording and reporting quality and supplier performance
* monitor and respond to feedback on product quality standards and report on any trends
This role would suit someone who has:
* experience working in a depot environment
* proven knowledge of product quality (ideally food)
* the ability to work on your own initiative
* a strong customer focus
* good IT knowledge and experience
* strong communication skills and the ability to engage and build relationships with suppliers and all colleagues across the wider Co-op
* good time management skills and able to prioritise tasks
