Senior Quality Specialist

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 new members to the quality team.

The role of Senior Quality Specialist will take on diverse responsibilities across operational duties (bath review, production liaison, labelling oversight etc.) as well as wider activities relating to auditing, supplier management and QMS implementation.

Given the transformation challenges on site, this role will need someone who can be adaptable to each of the quality responsibilities, all whilst promoting a high level of quality culture on site. Working dynamically and at speed will be crucial.

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

Key experience:

  • Experienced in a Quality Assurance capacity covering diverse responsibilities

  • Pharmaceutical experience strongly preferred but alternative GMP environments could be considered

  • Educated to degree level from a relevant technical background

  • Experience across most of batch review, investigations, auditing, supplier management and system controls.

  • Good understanding of the range of quality responsibilities on a testing, manufacturing and packaging facility

  • Supervision experience would be a nice to have but more importantly a coaching/mentoring mindset is needed

  • Appreciation of a client services business – if you have come form a similar setting that could be advantageous.

  • Flexible approach who can learn and adapt quickly
