Laboratory Administrator BLUL53156
Ledbury, Herefordshire
Competitive Salary

Our Client has an outstanding reputation for quality in the field of providing safety testing services to the pharmaceutical, chemical and agrochemical industries. They can offer a busy, varied and technically challenging working environment. Recently awarded Investors in People Silver accreditation, they are committed to offering the best training and development. They have an excellent opportunity for a Test Item Administrator to join their expanding laboratory based in Ledbury, Herefordshire.

In this pivotal role, you will be responsible for the efficient receipt, storage and appropriate documentation of all test items and other critical reagents. Ensuring the correct identification of test items is crucial to this role; as is communicating any storage requirements or discrepancies with their customers in a professional and efficient manner. You will also act as a point of contact during internal and external inspections and weigh, dispense and package test item samples for transfer to other departments and to customers worldwide.

In addition to these duties, you will be trained to carry out bench formulation work. This aspect of the role may require short periods of work at the weekend on a rota basis.

They are looking for someone with meticulous attention to detail, who really enjoys taking responsibility for their work and is persistent in getting things right. You must be able to establish routines and procedures that you are happy to follow consistently. A basic understanding of Chemistry is a distinct advantage in this role, so they will be looking for at least GCSE and possibly A-level qualifications or equivalent. Although advantageous, you do not necessarily need to have bench experience in a laboratory but you must be able to demonstrate administrative skills. In addition, if you have experience of working in a regulated environment and experience of working in a way that requires advanced organisational skills, we would be interested in hearing from you.

Closing Date: 22nd September
