Job Description

  • Production Services Technician
  • Pharmaceutical company in Worthing, West Sussex
  • £16,500 + Benefits
  • Monday to Friday, 7.30am – 3.30pm
  • Fixed-term contract for 18 months initially
  • Hard-working, energetic and versatile person needed!
  • Varied and rewarding role in an amazing company


Are you a hard-working, versatile individual? Do you have experience in warehouse or factory areas? If so, we are looking for a likeable, reliable individual to join a leading Pharmaceutical company in Worthing. If you take great pride in your work and enjoy communicating with people at all levels, this job could be just right for you. Following strict regulations, you will support production activity by carrying out a number of tasks to ensure all items are in place to enable the smooth running of critical processes. You will load and empty autoclaves and ovens, clean and wash regulated rooms, maintain laundry and other consumables, and prepare equipment and components for manufacturing. This role will be on the company’s payroll with a salary of £16,500, on a fixed-term basis for 18 months (with possibility of a permanent role beyond this).

The Company

A pioneering UK-based Pharmaceutical company who develop and manufacture liquid vaccines under strictly controlled sterile conditions. This vacancy has arisen at their main site in Worthing, West Sussex. There are around 250 employees and the company has an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere, staff morale and ongoing development. They manufacture a range of drug products and have very strictly regulated GMP clean room and aseptic production areas.

The Role

This is a unique position that supports the GMP-regulated production of liquid vaccines. You will service and support the production and manufacturing areas and your duties will be split across different service areas, primarily the preparation, supply and cleaning of equipment, laundry and process areas to support manufacturing. This is a challenging, varied position which will be ideal for a hard-working person who enjoys working with different people and getting really stuck in to a task.


The successful candidate must be a good-natured, hard-working individual with excellent attention to detail. Previous experience in a Production / Process area (e.g. Food, FMCG, Medical Device, Supermarket, Hosptial, Laboratory, Electronics etc) would be a strong advantage. Knowledge of GMP would be a strong advantage (as would Pharmaceutical experience from Novartis, Fisher, Custom, GSK etc) but is not essential. The most important thing is that you are reliable and keen to learn.
