The very commercially successful business has grown its output and turnover rapidly year on year and is now expanding to grow a network of customers internationally.

  • To drive a proactive approach to risk management to ensure that risks are identified and mitigated
  • Progress and maintain the Site Risk Register
  • Develop a baseline register of existing Risk Assessments
  • Create standardised Risk Assessment Tools

A great candidate for this position will have the following experience:

  • A strong background in Risk Management and Regulatory guidance in relation to Risk
  • Knowledge and understanding of Quality Assurance, GxP requirements and Quality Management Systems in the Pharmaceutical Industry
  • Ideally experience of leading the setting up of Risk Management Programs

The business is already a leader in their field and provides a hugely in-demand product range to a global customer base, so this is a great opportunity for a high-calibre Risk professional to have a big impact on the growth and development of the business and take their career to the next level.

The Risk Manager position is a critical hire to support business growth so interviews will begin within the next couple of weeks. Please apply by this advert or contact James Ivall at Goodman Masson on 02073 240538 to talk through the role in more detail.
