Job Description

Do you love to travel? Are you an experienced Industrial Engineer within the pharmaceutical or clinical supply industry? If so, this is a great contract opportunity for 6–9 months (possibly longer), working with a global team around the world. You will ideally understand clinical supply operations (particularly GMP packaging and distribution) and you must be flexible as you will be travelling extensively to various sites in the UK, Europe, USA and Asia, spending 3-4 weeks at any given site.

This is a newly-created role with a major global Pharmaceutical supply organisation, focused on working closely with Continuous Improvement teams on different studies for the company’s physical and documentation processes and presenting information to be used for costing models and continuous improvement activities.

The Company
A major Pharmaceutical service organisation, with 30+ sites worldwide, 4 of which are in the UK. The company offers a range of drug development, packaging and distribution services to the global pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. You will mostly be aligned to sites in Edinburgh, Scotland and Lancashire, England; so it would be helpful to live near to one of these places but candidates will actually be considered from anywhere in the UK (or even potentially outside the UK). The company specialises in the packaging and distributing new drugs which are being tested in clinical trials across the worldwide. This is an excellent environment in which to gain new experiences and develop your skills in Pharmaceutical clinical supply chains. Full details will be provided on application.

The Contract
Full details about the role will be disclosed on application. The contract is offered for an initial period of 6 – 9 months, with the strong possibility of extension beyond this, though this is not guaranteed.

The successful candidate needs to have a degree (science, biotechnology, engineering, chemistry etc), backed with strong experience in a commercially-focused role and a good understanding of GMP or similarly regulated operations (whether manufacturing, packaging or supply chain). You will need to demonstrate first-rate communication and the ability to achieve deadlines and able to present information to teams. You will also be willing to travel and stay away extensively.
