API Manufacturing Project Manager (Campaign Manager)


Are you looking for an exciting new challenge within API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) manufacturing? This is an excellent opportunity to join a dynamic business area at our Macclesfield Campus!

AstraZeneca leads our industry in the development of a strong and varied pipeline. This means our people are here to win, we give you a breadth of opportunities to be curious, to develop your skills and knowledge, and to get involved in cutting edge, unique work that has a big impact on science and medicine, and the lives of millions of patients around the world.

Pharmaceutical Technology and Development (PT&D) is the bridge that turns forward-thinking science into actual medicines that help millions of people. We work across our entire value chain, designing and delivering active ingredients, formulations and devices required to support new medicines - from supplies for use in early toxicology studies and clinical trials, to developing the technology to ensure drugs can be scaled up for commercial manufacture.

Drug Substance Manufacture (DSM) is part of the Clinical Manufacturing & Supply Function and is responsible for the internal manufacture of API for formulation development, pre-clinical and clinical development studies. Our 5 Pilot Plant facilities are used to generate key scale-up learning and technology understanding for API process development. DSM also supports the rapid development of commercially sustainable processes by flexible accommodation and experimentation at scale.

As a Manufacturing Project Manager (also known locally as a Campaign Manager) within our Projects, Process and Technology Team, you will work collaboratively within a team of Campaign Managers and Process Engineers to deliver the API, process data and scale-up learning to support the AZ development programme.

Key accountabilities:
You will be accountable for the delivery of API manufacturing campaigns within the pilot plant, from procurement of raw materials to manufacture and delivery of the API, ensuring compliance with all SHE (Safety, Health and Environment) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards.

You will need to be able to work independently, and to lead interactions across several interfaces. You will lead, improve and own elements of our key business processes to ensure that we maintain our licence to operate and demonstrate excellence in SHE and GMP.

You will also be required to facilitate problem-solving during manufacture, including Level 0, Practical Problem Solving and deviation investigations. Take ownership for ensuring your work complies to internal and external regulations, including cGMP, SHE, fiscal and business procedures.

Develop networks, in particular building and maintaining excellent working relationships with our Chemical Development teams, while sharing scale-up learning and successes across the wider business.

Essential skills:
  • A relevant degree (or equivalent experience) in a scientific or chemical engineering discipline
  • Pharmaceutical experience
  • Project Management skills
  • A confident and engaging communicator who can influence a variety of partners to drive success
  • Comfortable working in a dynamic environment and handling risk
  • Either direct experience or providing technical support to pharmaceutical API manufacture

Desirable skills:
  • Experience of Lean manufacturing and problem-solving
  • Experience working in a pharmaceutical API Manufacturing environment
  • Experience of GMP / regulatory requirements

AstraZeneca takes sustainability seriously and promotes green commuting through shuttle buses from the local station to site, car sharing, electric hybrid charging points and ample free parking facilities for cars and bikes.

At AstraZeneca when we see an opportunity for change, we seize it and make it happen, because any opportunity no matter how small, can be the start of something big. Delivering life-changing medicines is about being entrepreneurial - finding those moments and recognising their potential. Join us on our journey of building a new kind of organisation to reset expectations of what a bio-pharmaceutical company can be. This means we're opening new ways to work, pioneering ground-breaking methods and bringing unexpected teams together.
