Quality Engineer

This is the most straightforward career path for someone with a Quality Engineering qualification. Quality engineers are responsible for supporting teams to build products or services that meet the required quality standards and specifications.

Quality Assurance Analyst/Tester

In the software development industry, Quality Assurance (QA) analysts or testers focus on testing software applications to identify defects and ensure they meet quality standards. They create test plans, execute test cases, and report issues to improve software quality.

Software Tester

Software testers work within engineering teams with a focus on the product's behaviour, often compared against expectations. They can use specific testing techniques and tools to do this, helping inform the team and stakeholders about things like bugs and risks.

Quality Manager

Quality managers oversee quality control and assurance programmes within an organisation. They develop quality policies and procedures, lead quality teams, and ensure that quality standards are consistently met.

Regulatory Affairs Specialist

In regulated industries like pharmaceuticals and medical devices, regulatory affairs specialists ensure that products meet all regulatory requirements and standards. They navigate the complex world of regulations, approvals, and compliance.

Supplier Quality Engineer

Supplier quality engineers work with suppliers to ensure that raw materials and components meet quality standards. They establish quality agreements, conduct supplier audits, and drive supplier improvement initiatives.

Quality Consultant

Quality consultants work independently or for consulting firms, offering their expertise to organisations looking to improve their quality management systems and processes.

Quality Control Inspector

Quality control inspectors are responsible for physically inspecting products or materials to ensure they meet quality standards. They perform measurements, visual inspections, and testing.

Quality Assurance Manager

Quality assurance managers have a higher level of responsibility than quality engineers. They are often responsible for managing entire quality departments and implementing strategic quality initiatives.

Validation Engineer

In pharmaceuticals and other highly regulated industries, validation engineers ensure that equipment, processes, and systems are validated and compliant with industry regulations.

Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Specialist

EHS specialists focus on ensuring that workplaces are safe and environmentally compliant. They manage safety protocols, conduct audits, and ensure regulatory compliance.

Quality Trainer/Instructor

If you have a passion for teaching and sharing your knowledge, you can become a quality trainer or instructor, offering training programmes and workshops on quality management and improvement methodologies.

Data Analyst for Quality

Data analysts in quality engineering focus on collecting and analysing data to identify patterns, trends, and areas for improvement in quality processes.

Quality System Auditor

Quality system auditors examine an organisation's quality management systems to assess compliance with standards such as ISO 9001. They provide recommendations for improvement.

Process Engineer

Process engineers work on optimising manufacturing or business processes, often with a focus on quality improvement and efficiency.
