Product Compliance Engineer


Closing Date: 28/02/2022


You'll have the support of a global function specifically focused on monitoring and managing product conformity, but as a compliance engineer in the UK, you'll be managing documentation submissions across a wide variety of product lines.

Sometimes this may be as straightforward as filling out a form, but on other occasions, you may need to test and analyse products before preparing submissions, so it's a hands-on role focused on both engineering and manufacturing.

Each product comes with a Bill of Materials, and you'll be responsible for vetting each component from a conformity perspective.

When products are finished in the R&D cycle, you'll support the manufacturing launch process to ensure sustainability and high volume suitability for years to come.

The Successful Applicant

You might not be in a Compliance Engineer position right now, but ideally you'll have transferable skills from elsewhere in manufacturing.

Exposure to ERP systems, Bill of Materials, and understanding how complex products come together would be perfect.

CVs and covering letters should be sent to Rebecca.Pearce@fbgpg.com
