Do you have experience in factory / production / warehouse areas, preferably in a regulated clean room environment? Do you have a full, clean driving licence and experience of short-distance delivery driving / drop-offs? If so, we are looking for a likeable, reliable individual to join a leading Pharmaceutical company in Worthing. If you take great pride in your work and enjoy communicating with people at all levels, this job could be just right for you. Following strict regulations, you will deliver batches of drugs, medical items and other goods across three different buildings (in the same industrial estate) and will help with warehouse / stock control activities and the support of manufacturing, packaging and distribution processes. You will also assist with preparing, cleaning and sterilising equipment, waste disposal, laundry and other site services, giving you a lot of variety and keeping you busy
throughout the day. This role will be on the company’s payroll with a salary of £15,500, plus 15% shift allowance for 6am-2pm / 1pm-9pm shifts.

The Company
A pioneering UK-based Pharmaceutical company who develop and manufacture liquid vaccines under strictly controlled sterile conditions. This vacancy has arisen at their main site in Worthing, West Sussex. There are around 150 employees and the company has an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere, staff morale and ongoing development. They manufacture a range of drug products and have very strictly regulated GMP clean room and aseptic production areas.

The Role
This is a unique position that supports the GMP-regulated production of liquid vaccines. You will service and support all production and manufacturing areas and your duties will be split across different service areas, primarily the driving of a van between three different buildings. Completing documentation throughout your day, to ensure that there is always a clear audit trail, you will take deliveries between three different buildings / warehouse areas, assist with loading and unloading the van (NB. while some lifting may be required, this is not a “heavy lifting” role), check the correctness of all items and ensure that you manage your time effectively to meet specific deadlines. This is a role that can get very busy at times and it is essential that you can work methodically and stay organised throughout the day.

You will also undertake a range of duties to support the production areas. These duties could include:

- Preparing and sterilising components and equipment
- Making collections and deliveries across 3 neighbouring sites
- Managing waste disposal
- Cleaning and disinfecting classified areas
- Ensuring that the stock of laundry and consumables are available for production and manufacturing areas
- Contributing to GMP documentation and ensuring that GMP is followed at all times
- Maintaining compliance to Health & Safety guidelines
- Operating and emptying autoclaves, VHPs (Vaporised Hydrogen Peroxide) and oven chambers
- Getting involved in some mechanical operations

In addition to a salary of £15,500 + 15% shift allowance, the company offers a generous benefits package including pension, private healthcare, life insurance and discretionary annual bonus. The company is well known in the local area for its positive, buzzing atmosphere, variety of work and opportunities for career progression.

The successful candidate will be a versatile, hard-working individual, preferably with some experience from a regulated Production, Manufacturing, Warehouse or Services environment, following clean room regulations such as GMP or ISO. You will ideally have experience as a Delivery Driver, taking high-value items over short distances. You must be able to perform a range of manual duties, including unloading vans. You must be able to work in a methodical, clean and tidy way and follow strict guidelines, with a strong attention to detail and the ability to get on well with people all levels. Previous Pharmaceutical experience (Novartis, Pfizer, Wyeth, GSK, Fisher, Custom, Teva etc) will be advantageous but we will consider people from Food, FMCG, Medical Device, Diagnostics, Electronics and other production / warehouse settings. You must have a full clean driving licence.
