Senior QA Officer – CMC
9 months maternity cover contract – possible extension to 12 months
£35,000 – £40,000 per annum pro rata
Initially working from home

Our global Pharmaceutical client is looking to appoint a Senior QA Officer to their Development site in Liverpool.  There could be opportunities on site in the future due to the current expansion plan (extension of Laboratory and Manufacturing space) however this role is currently being offered on a 9 month contract initially.

This site is the main UK based site for all development work from pre-clinical up to Phase 3 clinical trials.  The successful candidate will be expected to work across the multi faceted CMC (Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls) teams based in the USA, Europe and Australia.  The successful candidate will also be working with their external partners including Contract Manufacturing Organisations, building close working relationships both in the UK and overseas.

In addition you will be expected to work with the respective regulatory authorities in each geographical location, development partners, laboratory organisations as well as being involved in external Audits and working with the overall supply chain.

The successful candidate will be expected to work across multiple projects, dealing with technical queries so a broader understanding of QA in a manufacturing and / or development setting is key.

In addition this person will also be involved in Tech Transfer projects and a strong Pharmaceutical industry background is essential.  This role will also be involved in future product launches where the successful candidate can really see the effect their work is having on future life saving and life improving drugs.

This isn’t an ordinary QA role and someone looking for their next step or challenge will relish moving into a much broader multi faceted role with a true Global reach.

Qualifications and Experience:
  • Ideally educated to Degree level with 3-5 years minimum experience within a Quality Assurance role on top of any other additional industry experience.
  • Experience in a CMC related function is highly desirable
  • Experience of working with 3rd party manufacturing and / or testing corporations would be highly desirable e.g., CMO’s / CDMO’s
  • Experience in Clinical product supply would also be of great benefit but not essential
