In 2021 and 2022 the focus of your work will be project based to get the new pharmaceutical factory built and approved by the Swedish Medical Products agency. As QA Manager, you will be responsible for overseeing and maintaining the quality and compliance work at the site. You must ensure that the new factory meets the GMP-related requirements and documentation for all operations.

We think you are someone who appreciates and initiates structure and routines. And most important of all - quality is always your guiding star.

Niconovum is a small, fast and flexible organization so you must be able to work both on a strategic and operational level. You will interact and communicate on all levels throughout the Niconovum organization. For this, you will need excellent Swedish and English language skills both verbally and in writing.
