Why join us?

What sets Scitech apart from its competitors is the way we conduct business and work together to deliver ‘Perfect Outcomes’ for our clients. As an employee-owned company, with strong customer-centric values, we take great care and pride in every aspect of our work. We’re a multi-disciplinary company specialising in the Life Sciences and Pharmaceutical sectors and our expertise ranges from design and build contracting and construction management to commissioning and qualification, pharmaceutical validation and quality consultancy. We need talented individuals, who share our values, to realise our ambitious growth plans and deliver perfect outcomes for our clients.

The Quality Consultancy Services team at Scitech work with our Life Sciences (Pharmaceutical, Biotech and Healthcare) clients to help them deliver facilities and equipment that meet the strict regulatory requirements of these industry sectors.

What we’re looking for

We are looking for a Computer Systems Validation Specialist to join our Quality Consultancy Services (QCS) team. A Scitech Validation Specialist performs a validation execution and consultancy role with the majority of work at our client and project sites. Reporting to a QCS Project Manager you will support one of our larger projects with smaller projects offering the opportunity to deliver for the client more independently.

This is an ideal opportunity for a graduate with 1 or more years’ experience in a regulated life science industry (e.g. pharmaceutical or biotechnology) and with familiarity with the regulations and guidelines on implementing computerised systems in your industry.

The role

In order to fulfil this role, you will have the ability to work pro-actively with Scitech team colleagues and client staff and develop relevant qualification and validation documentation.

You will also be encouraged to pursue ongoing improvements in quality, efficiency and innovation within projects and the project team. You will be supported and developed in your role by senior CSV colleagues and encouraged to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to ensure competency in accordance with the requirements of the role.

You will have knowledge of the generation and development of protocols for the validation of one or more of the following types of systems:

  • Automations systems including PLC and SCADA systems.
  • Laboratory system including analytical instruments and/or LIMS.
  • IT applications for example compliance management, document management and eBR.

Experience in the execution of these protocols in a project environment is a distinct advantage.

You will be predominantly based at our client sites and expected to visit our Scitech offices as required. Therefore the role will require a great deal of flexibility and a willingness to travel and stay away from home.

What’s in it for you?

A chance to be part of, and share in, our continued success. As well as a comprehensive package including competitive salary, Company Pension Scheme, 25 days holiday and private medical insurance, you will also be eligible for a share of Scitech’s annual profits after a qualifying period. We believe in rewarding those who exemplify our values and deliver for our customers. In short, your success is our success.
