Senior Analytical Technical Specialist
9 – 12 month fixed term contract
£37 – 43,000 plus 15% bonus
Based in Liverpool
Pharmaceutical industry

Due to the very exciting upcoming new arrival for a member of this company’s staff they are looking to recruit a Senior Analytical Technical Specialist to backfill the maternity leave of one of the Directors of the Analytical division.  Due to an internal secondment to cover the maternity leave this role doesn’t come with any management duties but rather is focussed on the Technical expertise that the successful candidate will bring with them to the role.

The Technical Specialist role is predominantly office based and will focus on the following:
  • Providing technical support / troubleshooting assistance to the analytical testing team as well as supporting method development when required
  • Document reviewing of method development and equipment validation
  • Writing new SOPs
  • Taking part in Data integrity initiatives
  • Supporting the implementation of an electronic data system including Perkin Elmer Labware LIMS
  • Helping to bring the document control system online in an electronic form
  • Taking part in analytical studies
  • Writing regulatory documentation
  • Drafting documentation for new equipment requests and then helping to install and validate the instruments
  • Taking part in CAPAs, deviations, laboratory investigations and reviews
  • Good communication skills are essential for the role
  • Experience of Chromatography – Size Exclusion (SEC) – Reverse Phase, Ion Chromagraphy (IC) and HPLC are essential as well as experience in plate based assays
  • Large molecule analysis experience (biologics) preferred however people with small molecule analysis experience are also encouraged to apply
Although an extension to the initial fixed term contract isn’t guaranteed with the upcoming Laboratory expansion there is a strong chance of other opportunities coming up and we would welcome any applicants who are curious about the possibility of this to still apply and see how far it goes.  In addition even though this role doesn’t come with any management responsibilities it is a senior position within the company and is a great career development opportunity for someone looking to take that next step.

Qualifications and Experience:
  • BSc science graduate (or equivalent) with biopharmaceutical or pharmaceutical experience.
  • Experienced in the analysis of biomolecules (preferred but not essential)
  • Experience within an analytical testing environment with an emphasis on QC.
  • Experience in writing technical specifications and test methods.
  • Experience of performing equipment qualification and test method validation
  • High level of IT proficiency, beneficial to have experience of implementing electronic systems (LIMS, ELN, e-LMS)
