Scania is now undergoing a transformation from being a supplier of trucks, buses and engines to a supplier of complete and sustainable transport solutions.
If you are a team player, a problem solver, enjoy a high pace, like to work within a broad network of professionals and are well structured- this might be the position for you.
Why supplier quality?
To be a leader in driving the shift towards sustainable transport solutions, not only Scania but the entire supply chain of Scania needs to eliminate waste, i.e. have the right quality levels. Also, buying a premium brand the Scania customers expect premium quality. A majority of the parts for our Trucks, Buses and Engines are sourced from suppliers and hence we need cooperation throughout the supply chain to assure good quality of these parts. Supplier Quality (SQ) is a part of Scania Purchasing with responsibility for quality assurance of new and modified parts, as well as for securing capable production processes at our suppliers during the life time of a part.
What to do?
The main responsibility of Quick team SQA is to take part in the cross functional analysis of possible supplier related deviations that are detected at Scania units or in the field. For supplier related problems, you shall act as a leader in that problem solving activity. The Quick team SQAs are located at the Scania production units where you work near the assembly lines. As the Purchasing Quality representative at the Quick team you have the possibility to use the knowledge and competence from the complete purchasing department when needed.
Within your area of responsibility you shall proactively contribute with continuous improvements and execute ideas on how to improve existing ways of working.
How to do?
As an Quick team SQA, you work cross functional together with colleagues from R&D, purchasing and Production within Scania, but also with supplier representatives. The Quick team is led by the Quick team leader and the mission is to find root causes and to solve Quality deviation that occurred within the Scania production units or detected by the truck drivers out on the roads. You will follow well-established processes that will guide and support you during your daily work. Our suppliers are spread throughout Sweden, Europe and globally which offers you a possibility to travel a couple of times during the year.
