The Opportunity

Our client is a FTSE 100 manufacturer working within the medical device industry, with multiple worldwide production facilities. We are currently looking for a Process Manager who will manage the improvement of some of the existing manufacturing processes on site. If you're background is in the delivery of improvement processes in pharmaceutical/medical device manufacturing then this 6 month contract might be really well suited to you. This will be a great time to join a company riding the crest of the wave at the moment, in late 2016 they became FTSE 100 and have been investing millions in both of their UK production sites. This has led to a number of NPI, which in turn requires a support and process improvement for an experienced contractor.

The Role

You'll come with experience leading process improvements from a hands on basis within a medical device/pharmaceutical or highly regulated industry. The role is going to involve reviewing existing procedures and processes in place in the manufacturing unit and looking to get more out them. The role has been created as someone internally has been seconded onto a project meaning for 6 months they need an extra pair of hands in the team. Ideally you'll have experience with IQ, OQ and PQ validations of existing equipment, but won't mind getting hands on with the engineering team to make adjustments to production lines and equipment to help generate improvements. Naturally it's likely you will come from a regulated industry where GMP, FDA & MRHA legislation is very prominently used.

The business is CI focused, so someone with an exposure of working within a CI/lean/WCM manufacturing environment would fit in really well. If you can demonstrate measurable process improvements which have saved, time, money or increased productivity or efficiency within medical device or pharmaceutical manufacturing you would be a good fit.

Last year the company introduced production of 22 new products to this site alone. You'll be used to looking into machine performance and how you can maximize the output and provide associated cost savings.

Aside from your specific project, you will also have the opportunity to contribute to the overall company processes, to help reduce process variability, and help key overall business projects and ensure compliance and regulations are being kept company wide.

The Candidate

First of all you will have a desire to work for a FTSE 100 company and add value. You will have experience leading process improvements hands on in a production environment, and ideally will have validation experience and come from an engineering background within a regulated industry like pharma/medical devices or food.

You'll be a firm believer in making a difference, as the products this company manufacture make a real different in the industry they are supplied into, in many cases they are life changing and saving. If you feel you have the passion and drive for a role of this nature please feel free to apply.

Engineering qualification
Experience in IQ, OQ, PQ validation
