Life Science graduates who looking to gain experience in the pharmaceutical industry will also be considered.
A pioneering Worthing-based Pharmaceutical company who manufacture and distribute life-changing drugs to patients across Europe and other territories around the world. They specialise 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.
Working in a busy team, in which you will always collaborate in pairs, you will be responsible for processing individual patient orders, packaging individual vials of vaccines, ensuring the correct labels and codes are allocated and that the orders are prepared for dispatch and international delivery. You will conduct visual inspections of vials and syringes, check codes for correctness and highlight any potential issues so the Quality team can conduct investigations. Using your attention to detail to the full, you will ensure that all drug packets are packaged correctly, with the right labels as per a colour coding system. It is essential that you show strong attention to detail at all times.
The environment is controlled by strict GMP regulations, so you will have to wear overalls, hair net and shoe covers. Make-up and 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 free parking.
We are looking for 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 September – February. Occasional days off will be permitted, but not several days in one block.
