Job Description

This is a unique opportunity to join a Biotech who are at the cutting edge T  - cell technology development with three therapies at clinical trials with others crossing the translational gap to be based in Stevenage.  The company are leading the way in the application of T – Cells in the treatment of haematological and solid tumours with the therapies currently in clinical trials.  They are looking to recruit a Supply Chain Manager with experience of complex clinical supply chains to take on the responsibility to manage all related activities.  Plus provide strategic support and build a team to support their growth as they move towards commercial launch.

The Company
A pioneering and ambitious Biopharmaceutical company who develop next-generation, programmed T-cell therapies to treat haematological cancers and solid tumours. The organisation has existed for 4 years and is very well funded, with a clear strategy and expansion plan for the next 3 years and beyond.

Commercially, they have a pipeline of product candidates in development (for the treatment of haematological malignancies and solid tumours) and is increasing its GMP production capacity. Based in a state-of-the-art facility in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, you will join a team that is doing something genuinely meaningful.

In addition to the day to day running of the site this role will be involved in longer term strategic planning as they scale up their operations as therapies move to launch and others enter clinical trials.  Meaning this role offers excellent growth in the role and a pathway to move to a more senior role in the future.
