Quality Manager/Staff Scientist

  • Job Center: UK NEQAS ICC & ISH

Job Description

UK NEQAS ICC & ISH provides external quality assessment (EQA) services to clinical healthcare laboratories to help them quality assure their tests and to improve clinical cancer testing across the UK and worldwide. The scheme has been in existence for more than 30 years, is accredited by UK Accreditation Service and is a member of the UK NEQAS consortium (a registered charity). We are an enthusiastic, hard-working team of scientists and administrative staff, based in Farringdon, London.

A vacancy has arisen in the team for a person to manage our very well-established quality management system and to contribute to the scientific work of the scheme.

  • You will be expected to maintain our quality management system (using Q-Pulse) and lead our audit programme. This won’t require your full-time attention and therefore, we will also want you to participate in laboratory and general office work to support our core EQA activities. After a suitable period of training you will also get involved in our quarterly EQA assessment runs.
  • Ideally, you will have knowledge of quality management and/or experience of working within a clinical histopathology service. But more importantly, you must be energetic, diligent and willing to apply yourself to all aspects of this important post. If you are the right person we are prepared to train you and to help you develop into the role and in your career.
  • Your starting salary will be dependent on your experience and skill-set. It will be between £34,635 and £43,023 per annum (for a 5-hour working week).
  • The employment contract will be provided by External Quality Assessment Services for Cancer Diagnostics, a registered Community Interest
