Aseptic Process Supporter

Category:  Manufacturing

Kalundborg, Region Zealand, DK


Do you have strong analytical skills and enjoy a hands-on approach to your field? Are you able to contribute to the success story of Novo Nordisk and ensure the highest level of quality in the production of life-changing medicine worldwide? Would you like a range of opportunities for personal and professional development? Then you might be the next member of our dedicated support team.
About the department
In Biopharm, we produce a range of products that help people live with chronical diseases like haemophilia and hormonal imbalances. In our new filling facility, we are filling the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) in vials and dosage systems. In other words, we make the products ready for packing and distribution with all the processes that are involved in this - from various visual inspections over actual filling procedures to all the documentation that is necessary for us to comply with regulatory and quality standards.
Our filling facility is ready to enter the next phase, and now we are looking into a period of production ramp up, which in turn initiates many process optimizations projects.
About the team
You will be part of a driven, young and robust support team of dedicated and talented academics. Our tone is relaxed, and if you enjoy sharing your knowledge and learning from others, you will enjoy working here. Our team supports the production on shop floor and ensure that the filling processes cover the validation of the lines. This means that whenever something is out of the ordinary, we are the ones who help make everything run again as quickly as possible. 
The facility is located at our site in Kalundborg with approximately 450 employees.
The position
As Process Supporter, your primary goal is to ensure that the production consistently delivers a high-quality product in compliance with internal quality requirements and GMP. 
You will be the one to set the operational procedures so that we deliver high quality products and secure continuous improvement of the process. 


Key responsibilities:

  • Ensuring that the right validation procedures are in place, challenging external vendors on specifications and technical issues when necessary. 
  • Handling a wide range of different stakeholders to ensures optimal collaboration across professional and cultural distances - and to provide continuation of a stabile production chain.
  • Participating in systematic problem-solving processes, development and optimisation projects as well as implementing broad understanding of a complex value chain.
  • Supporting the development of competencies in our production team and taking part in audits and inspections
  • Handling possible production deviations and batch release


  • You hold a degree in biochemistry, bioengineering, automation engineering, or similar.
  • It would be advantageous if you have 2+ years of experience from the pharmaceutical industry after graduating and some knowledge about aseptic production combined with process automation in biotech. 
  • You are able to speak and understand Danish and English and have natural interest in working with GMP and LEAN.
  • Interest in automation or programming skills would be nice to have

We are open to both experienced and newly graduated candidates and will apply you responsibilities and scope accordingly.

On a personal level you are open and honest, can work independently and are a good team player flexible to changes.
