Ambitious and collaborative supporter for cross-functional Raw Material & Solvent team

Kalundborg, Region Zealand, DK


Are you passionate about improving processes and equipment based on data and process understanding?


Would you thrive in a team with a high degree of professionalism and independency – and a large number of collaborating stakeholders?


We can offer you a dynamic and challenging job, where you will be responsible for ensuring stable manufacturing of our products, while contributing to rebuild and new-build of facilities.


The position

The RMS Support team is looking into a future where we will be supporting and contributing to many larger facility projects across our facilities. Together with your colleagues, you will ensure that equipment and processes are in compliance with regulatory demands at all times, supporting the implementation of state-of-the-art technology that will make us ready for an interesting future. This includes mechanical, automation and Cleaning design, setup qualification and of course the mandatory documentation that will be crucial in your reports and when you analyse your test data.


Expect the job to be a mix of minor and major rebuild projects and daily operations.



Your background is technical or from within the natural sciences, like engineering or a MSc. in chemistry or similar. Some experience in working with manufacturing equipment and/or automation design from large scale production lines in a GMP environment would be an advantage. But also newly educated candidates are relevant for our development and future.


We are looking for a candidate with a high degree of personal initiative, who is professionally curious and proud to deliver work of the highest quality.


You are motivated by taking on responsibility, and your ability to communicate across professional and cultural distances is probably one of the things you are proud of.


This position allows you to achieve expertise within qualification and validation processes across a diverse and complex manufacturing chain.
