As the subject matter expert, you will be solely responsible for all human factors applications and will report directly to the Head of Product Development.

These studies will take place in the UK, Europe and with time, the US and global travel will be a part of the role and is estimated at around 40% of the role. Offering the opportunity to visit some great places, including The Netherlands where my client’s sister company is based, whilst networking with experts in this therapeutic area.

Ideally you will have an undergraduate degree in Product/Industrial Design and previous experience of usability trial management within a commercial medical device environment. User experience scoring knowledge and its application to product development would also be extremely advantageous.
