Job Description

Do you have excellent attention to detail, patience and communication skills? Could you attend an interview at short notice? We have 2 x brand new temporary roles with a Pharmaceutical company in Worthing, West Sussex, in a busy manual packaging team. These are temporary contracts, paying £8.50 / hour (equivalent to £16,500 salary), to start ideally in July 2019. You will work 7am – 3pm Monday to Friday.
The roles will be filled quickly, so apply now! Local life science recent graduates will also be considered if looking to gain experience within the pharmaceutical industry.
The Company
A pioneering Worthing-based Pharmaceutical company who manufacture and distribute life-changing drugs to patients across Europe and other territories around the world. They specialize in making vaccines for people who suffer from debilitating conditions and they have an excellent reputation as a local employer. The company is well known its positive and supportive working environment.
The Role
Working in a busy Production and Packaging environment, you will perform a range of routine duties based around the Inspection, Labelling and Packaging of liquid vaccines that have been put into pre-loaded syringes or vials. This requires the highest possible attention to detail because you will check for defects, discolouration and anything else that might require investigation. You will manually process labels for individual orders and ensure that the correct labels are put on each pack, which requires lots of cross-checking of order numbers and batch codes. You will work in collaboration with others, checking each other’s batch codes and other information, to ensure 100% correctness and maximising efficiency of the team.
The environment is controlled by strict GMP regulations, so you will have to wear overalls, hair net and shoe covers. Make-up, jewellery will not be permitted in the clean room, as is standard within any Pharmaceutical production or laboratory environment.
You will be paid £8.50 per hour (the equivalent of a £16,500 salary) and will be treated like an employee, not a temp. You will work in a friendly team in a pleasant, modern clean room. The company offers kitchen facilities and parking.
We are looking for a hard-working, committed individuals with strong attention to detail. Previous experience in a regulated environment (GMP or ISO, from the Pharmaceutical, Food or Medical Devices sectors) would be a strong advantage but is not essential. Above all else, we want someone who works hard at all times, who offers excellent communication skills (both written and verbal), good literacy and numeracy, patience, an honest and likeable manner and strong attention to detail.
Please note that colourblind candidates cannot be considered due to the colour-coding system used when you check and label the vials of vaccine.
Candidates will regrettably not be considered if they have booked excessive holiday during the period of the contract. Occasional days off will be permitted, but not several days in one block.
