Manufacturing Team Leader - Warehouse.
Team Leader – Warehouse
The Vaccines Manufacturing and Innovation Centre (VMIC) has been established to provide the UK’s first strategic vaccine development and advanced manufacturing capability. VMIC will fast track development and manufacture of early stage vaccine products, as well as serve as the UK’s response capability to produce vaccines against emerging infectious diseases. They have already taken a leading role in the Government’s national response to COVID-19.
New starters can expect to join an exciting fast paced organisation, with ambitious growth plans. With a flat structure, employees will have exposure to senior leaders and be part of an organisation that has a start-up mentality but is backed by UK Government, and industry and academic founders.
Working through collaborative ventures with industry, academia, and NGOs, VMIC will ultimately strengthen and innovate the UK’s vaccines sector. Their state-of-the-art vaccines manufacturing facility will be located on the renowned Harwell Science and Innovation Campus near Didcot in Oxfordshire.
The team leader will coordinate all the operational readiness activities for the warehouse, ensuring all service levels are maintained and comply with regulatory and company standards. This will involve supervising a small team, recruiting, providing any necessary training and ongoing coaching, and overseeing the team’s day to day activities.
This is an exciting role in a rapidly growing organisation, allowing the post-holder to build a team and develop process which will help to lead the UK’s response to pandemics now and in the future. The post holder must be an enthusiastic and driven individual who thrives on problem solving and new process creation.
