The company offers innovative EAP options that can help people with life-threatening illnesses, enabling them to have access to new treatment options. In addition to this they offer the NPP programme which give access to unlicensed or unavailable medicines to patients around the world. The company is looking to expand and they have therefore created two Quality roles, one at QA Manager level and the other at QA Director level.

In addition to this, you will work collaboratively with the existing team and training personnel on newly created quality processes when needed.

We are looking for a personable and driven individual with some solid QA experience from a Pharmaceutical organisation, ideally with some experience of Expanded Access / Named Patient Programmes (though this is not essential). Fundamentally, you will need to have a good background in GDP and GMP, coupled with the desire and ability to take ownership of projects and the ability to work with people at all levels.
