The company offers a competitive salary and benefits and you will work within a supportive, busy and friendly environment where achievement is recognised and rewarded. Read on for more information!

The Company
The company is a pioneering UK owned Pharmaceutical organisation specialising in the treatment and prevention of allergies. Their focus is on the vaccination and prevention of a wide range of conditions including hay fever and their products are fascinating, complex and ever-progressing. The company employs around 270 people in Worthing across GMP, GLP and GDP areas and has built an excellent reputation for providing career developing opportunities, challenging and engaging project work, within a pleasant, vibrant working environment.

The Role
You will join a busy Quality Assurance department that supports all company activities with close links to Manufacturing, Packaging, Validation, QC and Product Development, Sales & Marketing and Regulatory Affairs. The department is split into two teams and this role is in the group focused on Quality Systems, QA Documentation and Batch Record processing. Using your skills to the full, you will review patient-specific batch records, maintain systems compliance, support change control, filing and review, prepare and issue QA technical agreements, analyse data, support the Document Control function and undertake a range of other responsibilities relating to continuous improvement. In addition, you will have the opportunity to expand into other areas of Quality Assurance activities. 

This is a broad, challenging role that requires meticulous attention to detail, strong communication skills and the ability to multitask. Full details will be provided on application.

In addition to a competitive salary (to be discussed on application), the company offers a generous benefits package including pension, private healthcare, life insurance and discretionary (non-contractual) annual bonus. The company is well known in the local area for its positive, buzzing atmosphere, variety of work and opportunities for career progression.

We are inviting candidates with a strong scientific / technical / engineering background (ideally a degree), and work experience gained in a GMP environment. Knowledge of QA processes and systems, combined with experience of batch record processing, would be a strong advantage. You will demonstrate the ability to multitask, use basic statistical tools and methods plus display data graphically. In addition, you will need a strong and enthusiastic work ethic, excellent communication skills and enjoy a closely-knit team environment.
