Qualified Person

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Qualified Person and Quality Assurance Manager and who is looking to join a leading steriles pharmaceuticals manufacturing business in a strategic position working on the front line of drug delivery to patients. If you are a new QP looking to gain steriles experience on a manufacturing site, then this is a great opportunity for you.

The business, who with multiple UK sites supply over 70% of their market, are now looking to hire a Qualified Person for their site based in Sheffield. Having rapidly grown their dosage output and recently secured new contracts covering the next 10 years, this is an important senior appointment for the business and crucial to future quality strategy and growth.

The QP/Quality Assurance Manager will be responsible for directing quality and ensuring the consistent product output from their site. Holding full autonomous responsibility, you will be heavily involved in a hands-on all-encompassing role that allows access to the full spectrum of QA. You will have a detailed involvement in the quality processes surrounding batch release and manage the QMS.

The ideal candidate will have the following core experience, abilities and attributes:

* Eligibility to act as a Qualified Person. UK QP's and EU QP's would both be a good fit.
* Proven experience in pharmaceutical manufacturing operations
* Strong knowledge base of quality management systems and business quality processes
* Passionate about the pharmaceutical industry with an appreciation of how an advanced product directly impacts the patient
* Be driven, ambitious and eager to learn

Due to the product range and proximity to the end user this would be a great opportunity for a candidate who wishes to work in an environment where their actions have a direct influence on improving patient lives. You will also be able to gain sterile onsite manufacturing experience should you be looking to increase your skillset in this area.

A salary of around £75,000 is on offer for the Quality Assurance Manager with a great benefits package and the ability to go higher for someone who would bring extensive experience.

Candidate shortlisting has already begun with a view to make a decision on interviews quickly so, if you are interested, please apply as soon as possible or contact James Ivall at Goodman Masson and I will happily discuss the role in more detail.

Hope to hear from you soon.
