Assistant Quality Assurance Manager

Job Reference: 918-QM9296

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT)
£40,057 to £45,839 pa

Whether your background is in pharmaceutical manufacturing or any other medical quality management or auditing field; few organisations offer the impact of NHS Blood and Transplant. You’ll work with teams the length and breadth of the country to implement ever-improving best practices. In doing so, making sure our cutting edge Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products are as safe as possible.


As you’d expect, our quality management and compliance systems are crucial to our success. You’ll be their champion: keeping licenses up to date, helping teams follow guidelines, recording and reporting on evidence, and managing audits. Anything and everything that keeps us working in the most efficient and safest way.


There’ll be some time behind a desk; but this is really a people-centric role. We’ll expect you to meet teams, government agencies and regulators, develop tailored solutions and respond to any incidents.


A background in pharmaceutical or medical quality management would be advantageous and, ideally, a relevant post-graduate qualification (or equivalent). It’s important you’re also a consummate professional who can build strong relationships and ask the right questions while keeping an objective view of the work.


This is a full time, permanent position. Working 37.5 hours per week, over 5 days.


This advert will close at 23:59 on Sunday 5th June 2022.


The interviews for this position are anticipated to take place on Tuesday 21st June 2022. (Subject to change)
