QC Laboratory Analyst / Technician – Pharmaceuticals                                                                     

Role: Full-time, permanent

Location: Fawdon, Newcastle upon Tyne

Salary: £20k – £28k + bonus + benefits + relocation

The Role:

Due to significant company growth, we’re seeking additional meticulous and methodical QC Laboratory Analysts to develop the testing, analysis and release of our products, including solid oral dose and effervescent tablets, along with speciality medicaments such as potent drugs. In this dynamic role, you’ll work closely with other departments to support our production requirements and to plan the timely release of our product batches. Working collaboratively with the wider QC department, you’ll conduct method validations, method developments and method transfers, along with performing analysis on a variety of samples including APIs, intermediates and finished products using techniques including HPLC, FTIR, UV/VIS and GC. All testing is conducted to meet MHRA and GMP compliance standards and as such you will ensure processes and instructions are followed closely and that accurate records and documents are maintained at all times. As we continue to open our Fawdon site and establish our laboratories, you have a rare opportunity to join our team from the beginning, make a real difference from the start and get involved with development projects as we continue to expand.

The Person:

We’re looking for individuals who are keen to grow with us as a company. With good experience in a similar role within a pharmaceutical GMP compliant analytical lab, you’ll have a good knowledge of EU quality regulations and experience using the analysis methods listed above. Experience of conducting self-inspections, quality based investigations and change control processes would be advantageous, as would experience in a fast-moving and growing organisation. As a person, you have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, able to liaise with stakeholders at all levels and navigate cultural differences with ease. With strong organisation and administration skills, you make good decisions, have a strong eye for detail and can prioritise a busy workload to meet deadlines. You’re a good team player, but equally happy working autonomously. A GCSE-level qualification in Chemistry (with additional industry experience) is essential for this role, as are good IT skills, with a particular focus on Microsoft Office – ideally with advanced Excel skills.

The Rewards:

In return, we offer a competitive salary and rewards package (including holiday, bonus and pension scheme). Not to mention the opportunity to genuinely make a difference in a new and dynamic role within a progressive and expanding business, at an exciting time of growing international reach. This role represents a real opportunity for on-going development, learning and progression as the company continues to expand.

How to Apply:                                                                                                            

If you possess the experience, passion and ability to make this role a success, we would love to hear from you. Please send your CV with cover letter to FAW_HR_Dept@accord-healthcare.com by 28th April, or for further details, you can contact Nicci by email on nicci_hendersonbell@accord-healthcare.com.
