Do you want to improve quality processes in a global context?

LEO Pharma has set out to become the world’s leading dermatology care partner. Part of fulfilling this very ambitious goal is founded on our ability to take our medical device operation to the next level. And that is why we need you.

Medical device QMS expert and driver of cross-organisational quality processes

You will become key driver of anchoring all medical device related requirements in our global QMS. At the same time you will handle other quality tasks in order to create and implement smart and business focused global processes – to ensure your development and to benefit from your knowledge. We expect a 70/30 split between device related and more general improvement initiatives. Your primary tasks will be to:

  • Ensure compliance with ISO13485, FDA CFR 21 part 820 and other legislation as applicable
  • Drive and support implementation of actions related to changes in regulatory requirements for medical device
  • Contact and collaboration with the Notified Body

Extensive knowledge of relevant legislation and requirements for medical devices

You have a degree at Master’s level and at least 6-7 years’ experience from working hands-on with Quality Assurance of medical devices. Ideally, you have some experience from working with cross-organisational processes based on lean principles. Regardless of your background you must bring extensive knowledge of relevant legislation and requirements for Quality Management Systems for medical devices including:

  • Medical Device Regulation (EU) 2017/745
  • ISO13485
  • 21 CFR Part 4, Part 11 and 820
  • ISO 14971 and other legislation as applicable  

As Quality Specialist you have a natural attention to details and the ability to think systematically as well as applying logical and smart systems to your work. Equally important is your pragmatic attitude towards creating results via collaboration. You thrive on taking the lead and you can do it in way that makes people follow your agenda because they can see you understand and respect their specific situation and business objectives.

Your new team

You will join a small and agile team of 6 Quality Professionals in Quality Systems and Processes based at the LEO Pharma headquarters in Ballerup, Greater Copenhagen. Our responsibility covers development and maintenance of LEO’s global QMS, optimisation of quality processes, handling of customer complaints, capturing and anchoring of new and revised GxP requirements as well as providing LEO with data and metrics on quality performance.
