I am partnered with an established and fast-growing pharmaceutical contract services provider that has invested significantly into growth over the past 10 years. They are working in a contract manufacturing, packaging and distribution capacity with clients on a global level. Given the success of the company across its different sites, it is now in the exciting position to add key personnel into leadership roles to facilitate the next stage of growth.

One of these key hires is for a Responsible Person (RP) to take ownership of the controlled drugs process on site. This will take full scope across the warehouse and wider quality systems – this person will fully approve all GDP and WDA(H) activities and will take an active role in the approval of suppliers and customers. Ultimately, this person is crucial to ensure that the conditions of the WDA(H) licence are maintained and will take a front seat in liaising with HPRA.

Given the expansion on site and the need for senior leaders, there is scope to which level this role could be appointed. This could be your first RP role – as long as you’re bringing strong understanding and experience of the processes involved. Or, you could be a seasoned RP looking for a new challenge and scope to have a wider influence on the business. Both levels will be managed accordingly with equal ability to develop further.

As this site continues its expansion, opportunities for exposure and development are readily available and encouraged, if desired.

Key experience:
  • At least 2 years experience with Controlled Drug Management
  • Strong experience working closely with quality assurance
  • Experience in interaction with the appropriate regulatory bodies
  • Experience of supplier approval in the context of GDP and controlled drug management
  • Quality and customer/client focused
  • Experience and/or strong ability to bring a continuous improvement mindset to the team
