The Company

Select Bag Sealers (SBS) is a small engineering business that manufactures and supports packaging machinery used in the food industry. The current owners acquired the business early in 2016 and have already made significant improvements to the working environment, efficiency and responsiveness of the organisation.

Part of a small privately owned group based near Leeds Bradford airport, the owners see the opportunity for considerable growth over the next few years both by offering excellent support to the UK customer base and by planned expansion into other geographical markets.

The Group employs around 35 people, sharing resources such as finance, HR and compliance. SBS has a small dedicated workforce focusing on machine assembly and customer support with on-site service and rapid spares availability. Since acquiring the business, the accounts and stock systems have been completely changed to streamline business processes. Whilst many further improvements are possible, the work so far has reaped huge benefits such as simplifying supply of spare parts, eliminating huge amounts of paperwork. The business is now far more responsive to its customers.

Working with a local engineering consultancy, we have converted the technical drawing base to 3D CAD (Solid Works) providing a strong foundation for product development.

The Opportunity

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Quality & Compliance Manager to join our team based in Yeadon, Leeds.

ProSpool and Select Bag Sealers are both owned by the same people and the Directors work across both companies. ProSpool are a tape converting company and Select Bag Sealers are a machine manufacturing company.

The Quality & Compliance Manager will report to the Managing Director and will be responsible for managing and maintaining systems and procedures so that the quality of the Company’s products and services is continually improving, the Company’s environmental impacts are reduced and to ensure compliance with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & ISO 18001.

The hours of work are 9.00am to 5.00pm although flexible working is available.

The role is currently performed on a flexible basis, 3 day per week, however we anticipate this being a full time role moving forward. We would be willing to consider either flexible arrangement or a job share.
