About the Role:

A great opportunity to join a small, dynamic regulatory team that will involve the maintenance of an extensive portfolio of licenced pharmaceuticals/medicines (inc. Rx, OTC, branded, generic and THR (herbal) products) in addition to support of New Product Development (NPD) projects across the business.

Your role will directly support the Regulatory Team in ensuring that T&R, including its various company entities, is fully compliant with its responsibilities for licenced pharmaceutical products. This will involve compiling, publishing and submitting product licence variations (MRP/DCP/National) in-line with national authority requirements and in accordance with internal procedures.

The position is key in supporting regulatory project activities (inc. NPD), generating CTD dossier sections and contributing to the regulatory strategy of the company when required. As appropriate, you will act as the lead regulatory person liaising with other departments and external bodies on business projects as well as a company representative at appropriate industry regulatory meetings with the UK regulatory authority (MHRA) or trade associations (e.g. BGMA, PAGB).

In addition to the above you will help ensure relevant departmental IT systems and procedure working practices are kept up to date and reflect legislative requirements and best practice.
