QA Officer – Manufacturing
6 month contract initially then Temp to Perm afterwards
Based in Liverpool
Rate will vary based on working pattern during the length of contract between £33,000 – £45,000 (shift pay dependant)


A major Pharmaceutical company in the Liverpool area is currently installing a new Secondary manufacturing line to the site and as such requires an additional experienced Quality Assurance Officer who has experience of Grade A to C clean room manufacturing to join their team during this key phase of the project.

The role will initially be based on Monday to Friday Days then when the tech transfer and process validation batches are ready to be manufactured the role will switch to a 2 days 2 nights shift pattern as the new facility switches to a 24/7 pattern.  Once this next phase is completed the role will switch to a 4 days 4 off shift pattern (no more nights) and therefore flexibility from the successful candidate in their working pattern is key.  Each pattern has a different rate of pay assigned to it up to around £45/46,000.

Once the new secondary manufacturing line is validated and up and running they will then be looking to grow the QA secondary manufacturing team and as such this role is then intended to be made Permanent at that point.  The project timescale is completion around July and as such the initial contract period will be for 6 months.

We’re interested in talking to experienced QA Officers from a Sterile manufacturing background however we will also consider people who have pharmaceutical manufacturing experience with a significant amount of QA experience as part of that role as an understanding of manufacturing systems from a QA point of view is key. 

The successful candidate will be expected to go into the Grade C area and prior experience in Gowning procedure for entry into a clean room would be desirable (full training available).

QA Officer Qualifications and experience required:
  • Minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in a scientific discipline
  • Experience of cGMP in a Pharmaceutical manufacturing environment
  • Experience of Secondary (fill / finish) and / or Sterile / aseptic manufacturing is highly desirable
  • At least 2 to 3 years minimum experience in a Quality Assurance role
Full job spec is available however if you are keen to join one of the largest expanding Pharmaceutical sites in the North West region please do get in touch for more details.
