Do you want to lead a team of biosafety experts in a versatile position that offers a great mix of team management and hands-on biosafety work?
Then grab this opportunity to work within the Coloplast innovation and life cycle management pipelines and play an important role in supporting the biological safety of the Coloplast products from cradle to grave.
Welcome to the Biosafety team
The Biosafety team is part of the Global Regulatory Affairs Group within Global Quality and consists of 6 colleagues in Denmark and 2 in Poland. Our main responsibilities are to deliver biocompatibility documentation and ensure compliance with regulatory demands – with no compromises on product safety. We do so through literature studies, product testing and assessments according to international standards which we then collect and document in writing.
“As a team, we use our knowledge of chemical substances and biological safety to support product development. So, we stay curious and open to input, and we collaborate across the company as well as with several international partners to make sure our customers can put their trust in our products,” says Joan Drejer, Director Global Regulatory Affairs Operations.
Manage your team with a hands-on approach
You will work from our Danish HQ in Humlebæk where you will be responsible for managing the Biosafety team. Doing so, you will take charge of the day-to-day operations within the team and allocate resources as well as ensure the motivation and development of your employees. You will support your team in their tasks with a hands-on approach, and you will personally lead, manage and complete biosafety tasks.
You will ensure the quality of our toxicological and biological documentation for Coloplast products as well as the development and optimisation of our biosafety processes, thus securing the best business support possible.
Lastly, you will support cross-functional activities, specifically ensuring a high level of interaction between Biosafety and other functions in both Global RA and EHS Affairs as well as the organisation in general.
Strong people management skills and solid scientific knowledge
- You have a master’s degree within biochemistry, biology, chemistry or pharmacology
- You have minimum 3 years of experience with biological evaluation and toxicological risk assessment combined with an eye for quality and a clear focus on “getting it right the first time”
- You are well-versed in the biosafety requirements for medical devices
- You speak and write English fluently – as we are an international organisation, all our documentation is in English
You are analytical, organised and capable of digesting complex data without losing the overall picture. As a manger you lead by example and have an open and honest communication with your employees, and you know how to create focus on delivering business results within your team. Lastly, you need to know how to navigate cross-functionally in a large international organisation.
At Coloplast we make sure that you can be you. That is why we encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief or marital status.
