Quality Control Inspector Jobs

Quality Control Inspectors make sure that warehouse goods and manufactured products meet the right standards before they are shipped to customers. The quality control inspector's role varies widely. For example, in an engineering firm an inspector might use special equipment to check that parts have been properly assembled. Whereas in the food sector a quality inspector might make sure that cakes are a standard size and colour, and that they have been packaged in line with the specification. Quality inspectors in a warehouse will ensure that items leave the warehouse packaged correctly and carry out quality control checks on the goods.

General tasks that quality control inspectors are likely to carry out include monitoring the process at different stages, carrying out tests on items before they leave the warehouse and write reports on what they've found.

They usually work 38 to 40 hours a week and often work shifts including evenings, nights and weekends. It may be possible for quality control inspectors to work part-time as they're usually based in a warehouse or production line.

Salaries range from around £20,000 to £35,000 for senior quality inspector positions. It is essential that you have the ability to be accurate and methodical, are good with numbers, are willing to work as part of a team and enjoy doing careful, detailed work.

How do you become a Quality Control Inspector?

Employers include manufacturers in many sectors, including pharmaceutical, medical devices, building and construction, food and drink, aerospace, textiles, electrical and steel.

Training is generally provided on the job by the employer and they may also study part-time to extend their knowledge and advance their careers. There is a range of specialised courses available including an NVQ/SVQ in Quality Management at Level 4.

They can progress to supervisor or team-leader level. Some organisations have teams devoted to quality assurance or management.
