Job Description

Are you a reliable, hard-working individual with excellent attention to detail? 2 x 5-month contract positions have arisen within the busy Dispatch team of a leading Pharmaceutical company in Worthing, West Sussex. These are temporary contracts paying £8.50 / hour (equivalent to £16,500 salary), to start throughout August and continue until the end of February 2020. You will work 8am-4pm Monday to Friday, and this will be a fascinating role to help in the shipping of lifechanging medicines to people across Europe.
If you have experience from a labelling, packaging, admin, mail sorting, print, dispatch or warehouse environment (or something similar), this will be a great opportunity to build on your skills and join a fascinating business
Interviews will be conducted in mid – July onwards and if successful you will start in throughout August depending on the induction/training days of the company.
The Company
A pioneering Worthing-based Pharmaceutical company specialising in the treatment and prevention of allergies such as hay fever and asthma. They produce injectable and oral drugs for individual allergy sufferers. The company is well known in the local area for its positive and supportive working environment.
The Role
Working in a small, busy team of up to 7 people, you will be responsible for processing individual patient orders, printing product labels, packaging orders into jiffy bags, and preparing them for dispatch. Using your attention to detail to the full, you will ensure that all drug packets are correctly put in bags, with the right labels (printed in the department) and placed in the right areas for distribution to countries all over Europe (and some worldwide). You will use the in-house computer system to process customer orders and it is essential that you show strong attention to detail at all times.
You will work good, consistent reasonable hours (8am – 4pm) and will join a friendly team in a pleasant, modern building. The company offers kitchen facilities and free parking.
You do not need experience in a Pharmaceutical company, but it would be an advantage to have worked in a process-driven environment (warehouse, distribution, mail sorting / post room, packaging, printing or production) where you have performed routine duties (including administration) but had to have your wits about you at all times. Above all else, we want someone who works consistently hard, who offers excellent communication skills (both written and verbal), good literacy and numeracy, patience, and honest and likeable manner and strong attention to detail. You must be available for an interview in July (date to be confirmed) and must be able to start throughout August.
Candidates will regrettably not be considered if they have booked excessive holiday during the period of August – February. Occasional days off will be permitted, but not several days in one block.
