Job Description

A new role has arisen near Guildford, Surrey, to join an innovative Biotech company. We are recruiting for a Production Technician with GMP experience to join a new purpose-built manufacturing facility. The facility will be manufacturing different versions of their drug delivery carrier technology for cosmetic and pharmaceutical products and aim to gain their GMP accreditation by the end of this year.

If you are excited by the opportunity to join a growing business, this will be an excellent career opportunity. The company is paying a generous salary (to be discussed on application) and this role is initially offered on a 12-month fixed-term contract (but with a very good chance of becoming permanent). The facility is not commutable by public transport, so use of your own vehicle is essential. The site is within easy commuting distance of Horsham, Guildford and Crawley.

Company Description
You will join an exciting and innovative business who have developed and patented a novel drug delivery carrier. This drug delivery mechanism can be loaded with a range of ingredients, ranging from DNA to vitamins and proteins. They are also able to alter the design of their carrier to be polypharmaceutical, allowing several different methods for administration and timed release.

The Opportunity
Your responsibilities will include:
• Dispensing of reagents and materials
• Mixing operations
• Handling of fine powders and potent solvents
• Use of Rotary Evaporators
• Use of freeze dryers
• Completion of batch records
• Ensuring GMP and COSHH requirements are fulfilled
• Familiarity with cleanroom manufacturing requirements

We are looking for experienced Production individuals who have experience of working within a GMP environment, who can support technology transfer including developing scale up (to 20L) and producing batches.
