What does a QC Manager do?
QC managers have senior level responsibility for directing the quality control department, usually of a manufacturing or production operation. They perform or oversee testing and inspection processes and quality verification procedures. They recruit, hire, train, and supervise a team of QC specialists, analysts, and support staff. They develop, implement, and enforce department policies and protocol, and verify that staff are upholding mandatory quality standards. They may plan and produce training manuals, programs, or presentations. They also handle administrative duties such as budgeting and scheduling.
QC managers typically have a bachelor’s degree in a scientific or technical field. They should have a background in roles that involve maintaining quality control standards, ideally in positions that involve supervisory responsibilities. These roles require leadership capabilities, highly developed analytical skills, and meticulous attention to detail.
