The Role
Working in a busy team, in which you will always collaborate in pairs, you will be responsible for processing individual patient orders, packaging individual vials of vaccines, ensuring the correct labels and codes are allocated and that the orders are prepared for dispatch and international delivery. You will conduct visual inspections of vials and syringes, check codes for correctness and highlight any potential issues so the Quality team can conduct investigations. Using your attention to detail to the full, you will ensure that all drug packets are packaged correctly, with the right labels as per a colour coding system. It is essential that you show strong attention to detail at all times.

The environment is controlled by strict GMP regulations, so you will have to wear overalls, hair net and shoe covers.

Above all else, we want someone who works hard at all times, who offers excellent communication skills (both written and verbal), good literacy and numeracy, patience, an honest and likeable manner and strong attention to detail. Please note that colorblind candidates cannot be considered due to the colour-coding system used when you check and label the vials of vaccine.
