In the life sciences industry, Quality Persons are highly trained, exceptionally experienced individuals with versatile skillsets, dependable traits and a comprehensive knowledge of medicine. Responsible for certifying every batch of medicine, QPs are thoroughly trained and equally as reliable, acting as a key link in securing the chain of excellence that runs throughout the life sciences.
Long before medicines and devices ever make it to the market, a QP will be responsible for overseeing their safety and efficacy during the clinical trials process. Managing and approving products at the testing and manufacturing stages are only two parts of a very complex job however – a QP must also possess a granular understanding of the various external factors that influence outcomes in the industry.
This could pertain to supply chain management, supplier management, the many adversarial aspects facing the wider industry today, leading a QMS team, managing quality control, and many others (depending on the nature of the company). QP jobs aren’t limited to the bigger pharmaceutical giants either – you’ll find them in companies of all shapes and sizes throughout the life sciences. Due to the advanced skillsets and lengthy experience requirements of a QP, they can be a very difficult role to recruit for, yet they’re nonetheless an essential part of the puzzle.
