Job Description

A brand-new position has risen to join a Biopharmaceutical company in Worthing, West Sussex as a Validation Technician on a fixed-term basis for approximately 12 months. The ideal candidate will have a scientific or technical degree, together with some commercial experience relating to validating processes or equipment. This could be an excellent opportunity for a life science graduate with some technical experience who is looking to develop their skills within a sterile Pharmaceutical vaccine manufacturing environment.
The company is offering a strong rate of pay (on the company’s payroll) depending on experience, which can be discussed on application. Whilst this is a temporary role, it would not be suitable for a Validation consultant.
The Role
You will gain a range of experience when joining the Validation department, being responsible for the execution and reporting of different validation activities across the site. Based in a team of 6, you would own part of the requalification schedule and ensure validation is completed on time. This will be a varied and fascinating role alongside authoring validation reports for routine activities and projects. You will liaise with other departments and provide support to enable validations to be completed. Some of your time will be spent with document-based activities such as statistical analysis, preparing reports in an office environment and other times would be involved in hands on activities such as temperature mapping or testing equipment etc.
Candidates will be considered from QA, QC, Engineering and Production environments, preferably from the GMP-regulated Pharmaceutical industry. You must demonstrate strong analytical skills and the ability to write good quality documents. Working in a fast-paced, highly process-driven sterile manufacturing environment, you will encounter a range of technical challenges and opportunities to collaborate with scientific, engineering, quality, and production teams.
The successful candidate will be a conscientious, attentive individual with experience in GMP from a role in Validation, QC, QA, Production, Engineering or IT Testing, ideally from the Pharmaceutical industry. You will ideally have a degree (or similar) in a scientific or engineering discipline. You must have a good understanding of manufacturing processes, laboratory equipment and computer systems.  You must be able to demonstrate reviewing documents and data, writing quality reports as well as ensuring the meticulous checking and qualification of processes and equipment. Experience in statistical process control would be a strong advantage, as would high levels of PC competence. You will need excellent communication and team working skills, with the ability to handle your own workload, organize your own time and follow Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
