Do you have strong attention to detail and manual dexterity in a highly regulated environment? If your answer is YES, then we are looking for you! A 12 - months fixed term contract role has arisen in the Production department of a leading Biopharmaceutical company in Worthing focusing on manufacturing liquid vaccines. If you have manual dexterity, high level of concentration, attention to detail and happy to work in a regulated production environment, wearing full protective clothing this will be an excellent opportunity for you. If you have worked in a regulated setting (e.g. GMP, ISO, sterile / aseptic etc) and are used to following SOPs precisely, we would love to hear from you.

You will be paid a salary of £18,525 plus benefits and you will work 7am-2pm Monday to Friday for 6 months during the “low season” (typically Feb-July) and 6:30am-3:30pm Monday to Friday for 6 months during the “peak season” (typically Aug-Jan).

The Role:

 Manufacturing vaccines mostly by hand for individual patients within a strictly controlled sterile/aseptic GMP clean room environment by following a specified order

 Setting up vaccines for manufacture

 Operation of VHP machinery to maintain the clean and sterile environment

 Checking batch record documents to ensure they are filled out correctly

 Providing operators in the clean room with products and vials for manufacture

 Using the computer system to enter data accurately


You will spend a lot of the day on your feet and there will be some lifting (not heavy) involved. Your role will involve setting up vaccines for manufacture, checking documentation, manually measuring various substances, using state-of-the art machinery (autoclaves, balances etc) and ensuring that all work in the Production area meets high standards. You will be working in a friendly, welcoming team of people that forms part of the Primary Production department, preparing substances that will be used in the development and manufacturing of vaccines for patients across several countries and who are genuinely passionate about what the company is doing.

The company is well known in the local area for its positive and supportive working environment. The company is easily accessible by car or train.

Experience
We are looking for a committed, hard-working individual who has some experience from a regulated clean room environment and is keen to learn all about the highly controlled manufacture of patient-specific drugs, made to order by hand.You must be dexterous, able to follow instructions, self-motivated and keen to learn. Candidates will be considered from industries such as Food, Medical Devices, Precision Engineering, Lab Testing (including microbiology testing), Diagnostics etc. If you have worked in a GMP clean room environment, or a sterile area, it would be a very strong advantage, but this is not essential. Above all else, we want someone with excellent communication skills, good numeracy skills, an honest and likeable manner, and the ability to work in a role that requires constant attention to detail.
