They specialise in making vaccines for people who suffer from debilitating conditions and have an excellent reputation as a local employer. The company is well known for its positive, supportive and collaborative working environment.

The Role

Working in a busy Production and Packaging environments, you will perform a range of routine duties based around the Inspection, Labelling and Packaging of liquid vaccines that have been put into pre-loaded syringes or vials. This requires the highest possible attention to detail because you will check for defects, discolouration and anything else that might require investigation. You will manually process labels for individual orders and ensure that the correct labels are put on each pack, which requires lots of cross-checking of order numbers and batch codes.

Please be aware that the environment is controlled by strict GMP regulations, so you will have to wear overalls, hair net and shoe covers. Make-up and jewellery will not be permitted in the clean room, as is standard within any Pharmaceutical processing environment.

Experience

We are looking for candidates with some experience in a regulated Production, Labelling, Packaging or Warehouse environment, following strict regulations such as GMP or ISO eg pharmaceutical, FMCG, fresh food, medical devices, healthcare products, cosmetics etc. Above all we want people who work hard at all times and who offer excellent communication skills (both written and verbal), good literacy and numeracy, patience, an honest and likeable manner and strong attention to detail.

Please note that colourblind candidates cannot be considered due to the colour-coding system used when you check and label the vials of vaccine.
