Purpose of Role:
Good Laboratory Practice and Good Clinical Practice Inspectors:

The successful candidate will focus on the inspection of international and national bioequivalence studies but will also have the opportunity to participate in and lead national GCP inspections of commercial and non commercial organisations.
Both vacancies represent an exciting and varied opportunity with excellent career prospects for the right person.
