In some regions our amazing products are considered to be medical devices. This means we maintain our Medical Device quality management system in compliance with ISO 13485:2016, to support the development of our groundbreaking products.

About the role:

Okay, we’ve waffled long enough. So let’s get to the good bit: You.

As a Regulatory Affairs Specialist, your role sits within the Quality and Regulatory team, reporting to the Lead Regulatory Affairs Manager.

You shall be a confident individual with the ability to communicate across all levels of the organisation and work well in a fast-paced environment. You respect rules and regulations but are not afraid to do things differently and challenge ‘business as usual’. You are organised and logical and can form a clear path through the noise when complex decisions need to be made. You are able to work autonomously and be an authoritative voice for Regulatory Affairs. You can execute plans of action and communicate them with confidence across the business.

You will have experience working within the Medical Device industry, in a global regulatory focused role. You are excited by the prospect of supporting the regulatory strategy and best practices in a rapidly growing and exciting business.
