LEO Pharma

Quality Specialist – external production & suppliers

Do you want major influence and ample opportunities for development?

LEO Pharma has set the very ambitious goal to become the world’s preferred dermatology care partner. To make this vision come true we are taking our organisation to the next level. And that is why we need you and all of your good quality DNA.

You will join a newly established department responsible for quality management of external production partners and suppliers to internal production – e.g. suppliers within packaging materials, raw materials, excipients, consumables, service providers and consumables. As such, you can look forward to major influence across building of the new department to management of your own tasks – in a successful, international company that prioritises employee satisfaction and development opportunities.

Quality oversight, quality agreements, relationship management…

As Quality Specialist your overall focus is to ensure top quality in deliverables from external partners. You will become key player in handling the daily operation in an area of great (and exciting) complexity. You will have multiple contacts on a daily basis and be trusted to make business critical decisions on your own. As we are looking for four new colleagues, we will decide on your specific responsibilities based on a good dialogue with you: Your tasks will generally comprise:

  • Quality oversight of suppliers and/or CMO’s
  • One point of contact on quality issues
  • Maintenance of quality agreements
  • Quality meetings with partners/suppliers
  • Handling of change request, deviations, etc.

The job can be with focus on medicinal products and/or medical devices and/or GDP activities – we will decide on your focus via a good dialogue with you. Regardless of your role, you might be travelling up to 10-15 days per year to meet suppliers, partners and colleagues – primarily in Europe.

5+ years quality experience and entrepreneurial spirit

You have a natural science degree and 5+ years’ experience from working with quality in a GMP and/or GDP regulated setup. You will most likely have specific experience within one or more of the areas mentioned above e.g. medical devices, packaging materials and so on.

To succeed, you must thrive in an environment with only few defined standards and manuals – you will contribute to the development of those while handling your tasks accordingly. This takes entrepreneurial spirit, overview and the ability to prioritise among multiple tasks and deadlines. You have a positive and optimistic belief in that there always is a solution to a problem at hand. Additionally, you can balance when to try on your own and when to ask for advice.

Your new team

You will be part of a group of 10 skilled and dedicated Quality Specialists in External Manufacturing & Suppliers Quality based at the LEO Pharma headquarters in Ballerup, Greater Copenhagen. We are an international team and we are working in an informal and positive environment. Even though we are busy, we always have time to help and share knowledge to the benefit of us all.

We look forward to receiving your application.
