Equipment Responsible in OFP

Category:  Manufacturing

Måløv, Capital Region of Denmark, DK


In Oral Finished Products (OFP), we set ourselves the ambitious goal of being the first on the market with a tablet containing a GLP-1 based drug. An ambitious goal that has been achieved as the product has gained approval in several markets worldwide. With this ground-breaking tablet, Rybelsus®, we are extremely proud that we finally offer patients with type 2 diabetes an alternative to the injectable preparations.

Our next ambitious goal is to ramp up, to secure the overwhelming demand for Rybelsus® tablets for our patients. Therefore, you now have the opportunity to join this exciting and ground-breaking journey that offers completely new possibilities for diabetes treatment.

So, do you want to help implement, validate and maintain equipment? Are you an academic with strong maintenance and validation skills, ready to take responsibility for keeping our operational equipment running in a manufacturing setup with very high-quality standards? If yes, then you could be our new equipment responsible.


About the department
OFP Production consists of approx. 230 dedicated employees in 2 areas; Bulk Tablet Production and Pack. The vacant position as Equipment Supporter is in a newly established team in OFP C2 Bulk Production, which today consists of approx. 60 dedicated employees with responsibility for tablet production, where we focus on production for the market, ramp-up and optimization of our processes in close collaboration with the other teams in the Bulk area.


The position
As our new colleague, your days will be highly varied. You will be part of the equipment support team responsible for securing stable performance for a variety of equipment in the tablet production. The job will also be focusing on optimization and maintenance of the equipment and their validated state in close collaboration with your highly skilled and dedicated colleagues.

You will be appointed responsible for specific equipment and must ensure that the equipment is ready for production within the pharmaceutical industry's requirements. You will be a part of the daily support with expert knowledge for handling incidents, change requests, deviations and projects. Your expertise will be needed for systematic problem solving – ensuring that we find the correct root cause which we can base corrective and preventive measures on. At other times, optimisations and projects will be your focus – making sure that we will be able to meet the growing demands of the future.


In OFP, we make a great effort to ensure that you as a new employee get the best possible start in your new job. You will therefore spend the first few days with other new employees, where you will jointly go through an exciting introductory course. The area manager will welcome you, and a colleague from your own team will act as a mentor and review your individual training plan.


As our work is carried out and documented in accordance with GMP regulations, a systematic approach and a strong quality mindset is expected.

To be successful in the role we expect you to have:

  • A scientific background, at bachelor or master level or a Bachelor of Technology Management and Marine Engineering but overall have a curiosity for technical solutions.
  • You preferably have +3 years of experience with maintenance and validation from the pharmaceutical or other regulated industry, together with insight into GMP regulation.
  • Experience in working with change requests, requirement specifications, validation and test, as well as deviations will be an advantage.
  • Good Danish and English language skills.

You will work closely with different professional groups, so good collaboration and communication skills are highly valued. On a personal level you are result-oriented, good at planning and you take pride in driving tasks forward and meeting deadlines. We also emphasize that you are a team-player and that you can motivate others around you.
