Impact Statement MHRA Recruitment Feb 2020

Within our industry we need to be very appreciative of our UK Regulator and particularly it’s inspectorate branch. They have a difficult, exacting and complicated job to perform and it is vital that industry works with them in order to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers whether they be the patients who use the medicines we make or other healthcare professionals and carers.

The inspectorate has long had a very international outlook and has been supportive of training of newer less experienced inspectorates worldwide. This can be illustrated by its long and influential involvement with PIC and its ‘spin off’ PIC/S. It has been a very influential and important member of EMEA /EMA but Brexit has changed the latter situation markedly. We don’t at this stage know what agreements will be made in respect of medicines supply between the EU and UK but one thing is certain – The UK and indeed the whole world will still need the MHRA /MHRA inspectorate to ensure the quality efficacy and safety of the manufacture and flow (supply chain) of medicines into and out of the UK.

The MHRA inspectorate has recently published two blogs about its work/ ways of working and recruitment process. So, this Impact Statement could be pointed directly at you! The MHRA needs good inspectors as does our industry. Why not take a look. After all a job with the MHRA could be the dream job for life for some individuals, for others it could prove a very useful experience for career progression whilst having the satisfaction of helping keep patients safe as well as perhaps helping facilitate the introduction of new drugs / new technologies to our industry.

Note:- PHSS believes that the recent recruitment window has now closed – the next is in about 6 months. So, if you are interested you will have a little time for consideration. Also there is no harm in exploring possibilities with MHRA in the meantime.
