Job Description

A brand-new contract position has arisen in Swindon, Wiltshire, for a Validation Engineer, to join a leading Pharmaceutical GMP manufacturing organisation. You will act as validation representative for the installation and qualification of a new manufacturing line.
This is a contract for 5-6 months, to start as soon as possible, and you will be paid a generous pay rate (up to £300 / day if you have your own limited company, or an equivalent salary of £40k salary if you work through an umbrella company). Some negotiation may be available on the pay rate for the right candidate.
We are looking for an experienced Validation professional who has a strong understanding of GMP and can undertake various aspects of a line installation project. You will oversee User Requirement Specifications (URS), IQ, OQ and PQ protocols, Qualification Deviations (in collaboration with QA and other departments) and Change Control activities, as well as producing all Validation reports. You will help assess potential risks and work with project teams to ensure that the new line is completed and qualified to specific timescales, so that production can begin in earnest as soon as possible.
You will work Monday to Friday, 37.5 hours a week, in a state-of-the-art GMP environment in Swindon for the manufacturing of new drug formulations in both large and small quantities. The company is well-equipped to observe appropriate social distancing measures, whilst maintaining high productivity in a regulated clean room environment.
Experience required:
  • Candidates must have an extensive Validation background from a GMP environment, with expertise across IQ, OQ, PQ, URS and other components that have to come together in an installation project such as this.
  • Strong Change Control experience is a must, together with having excellent communication skills to help manage the implementation of new processes.
Full details about the role will be disclosed on application.
