Currently, they have operations throughout Europe, in countries such as France, Germany and Ireland and facilities in the UK and US. Their mission is to play a vital role in the development of new products that allow disease prevention and treatment.

This organisation nurtures a place where respect, pro activity, teamwork and patience are core values. Due to the growth of the company, they are now looking for you to be the steady point of contact for multiple important clients.

To really be successful, you will stay up to date on developments and trends in the CMC domain and identify the opportunities that contribute to the strategic goals. As you are engaging with existing clients you know what is important, what their needs are and thus get in tune with business development opportunities for existing and new clients. As a specialist with quite a bit of experience and knowledge, you will also pass on your knowledge and coach professionals to develop themselves as well.


What we like to see in the ideal candidate:

  • BSc or higher degree in Pharma or Biotech
  • Eight to ten years experience in early to late stage CMC development
