As a Level III Scientist, you will take ownership of improvement projects, alongside being responsible for presenting data to other departments, troubleshooting equipment and processes, raise and investigate Non – Conformances and promoting a positive and collaborative team culture.

You must have a good understanding of chromatography techniques like HPLC and GC and will need to have the ambition to progress a long-term career in the lab. You will need to have excellent communication skills, a positive and supportive attitude and a real desire to further your knowledge within a unique, ever-evolving Pharmaceutical company.
