Team Leader - Manufacturing.
Team Leader - Manufacturing
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.
This role available is a unique and exciting opportunity of being part of a team setting up the Manufacturing department within VMIC, establishing infrastructure, function and best practices for the operation of the department and within the facility. Reporting to the Manufacturing Manager, this role will help ensure that the new Manufacturing and Innovation Centre meets the standards and expectations of regulatory authorities and collaborators.
This role is based within the upstream and downstream manufacturing department which covers the production of drug substance and vaccines. The Team Leader will supervise a team of operators and will be responsible for the execution of various vaccine manufacturing steps.
