The Role
The overall purpose of this role is to control and manage the Packaging Change function within the Marketing and Regulatory Support operation of the company. This involves prioritising projects to effectively support the design, development and changes to packaging components including primary and secondary packaging, labelling and patient information leaflets (PILs). This includes the production and amendment of packaging components, artwork and text while taking account of country specific regulatory requirements. The job holder will drive through all changes using external developers while coordinating internal approval, purchasing and product implementation. Inherent in the role will be ensuring all administration records and systems are updated, proof reading text, suggesting ideas for and checking artwork, coordinating and liaising between a wide range of departments including quality, regulatory, operations and marketing plus preparing dossier submissions when required.
