Pharmacy Production Support Worker - Higher level aseptic services

Have you experience of pharmaceutical production in hospital or industry?

We have a vacancy within our aseptic manufacturing units and are looking for suitably candidates with previous experience of pharmaceutical production. You will already have achieved or be working towards an NVQ 2 in pharmacy services or have equivalent experience. Once started, you will need to complete an NVQ 2 within one year for regulatory compliance reasons.

Working in the aseptic units is a very satisfying job! You will work with trained technicians and pharmacists and as a team undertake the production of medicines that make a real difference to patient care - the patients we treat are often the sickest and most vulnerable in the hospital. These medicines are not available commercially and so patients really depend on us getting it right all the time!

You will have experience of working in a GMP production environment and be able to show you can work accurately, efficiently and follow procedures at all times. Due to the critical nature of our work you will have to meet the highest standards of discipline, personal hygiene, attention to detail and clean room behaviours.

Closing date: 25 November 2018

Interview date: 10th / 11th December 2018

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

The postholder will have regular contact with vulnerable people and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
