The Company

Niconovum AB is a Sweden-based pharmaceutical company that markets innovative nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products under the Zonnic brand. Our products are sold in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland, and the Zonnic brand is #3 in terms of market share in each market – but gaining share every quarter. The company is experiencing very strong growth and is now in the process of setting up a new manufacturing facility in Ystad, where this role will be based.

The Role

As Technical Manager in the Niconovum production organisation, you will be working closely with, and report to, the Plant Manager. You will be part of a group of up to 20 people consisting of technical and operational personnel.

The role must ensure that registration, documentation, machine maintenance and machine calibrations are satisfactory and fully compliant with both internal and external requirements. You will be responsible for managing the computerized maintenance system and developing a risk management plan for spare parts and unscheduled service. You will be the contact person and manage relationships with external contractors who perform maintenance and installation work at the factory.

In 2021 and 2022 the focus of your work will be to get the new pharmaceutical factory built on-time and on-budget and approved by the Swedish Medical Products agency.

Main responsibilities will include:

  • Ownership of preventive and predictive maintenance for machines and building in general
  • Calibrating measuring instruments
  • Establishing a network of reliable local contractors
  • Engaging experts from the machine manufacturers
  • Handling contracts with suppliers and technicians
  • Training staff, as needed
  • Production documentation, as needed
Background sought:
  • Technical training, preferably in life science production environment
  • GMP experience
  • Knowledge of maintenance systems

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. As a person, you must be organized, diligent, and conscientious, with the professional maturity to work independently, but seek input from colleagues when necessary. Efficient production is of critical importance, so you need to be meticulous, with a strong focus on details and risk identification, with a willingness to take initiative and develop creative solutions.
