Head of Technical

An exciting opportunity has arisen at Inovia International for an experienced technical manager to join the senior management team. Inovia is part of the Stan Chem International group of companies and specialises in the manufacture and distribution of natural based raw materials and bulk products for the personal care industry. Additionally, Inovia is a contract manufacturer specialising in short / medium production runs of aromatherapy, spa, skin care and body care products. As part of our planned programme of growth of the business we are now looking to recruit another senior member of the management team specifically to head up the technical side of the company.

The main focus of the job is to take overall charge of the already established technical, regulatory, quality and formulation teams. Duties will include:

  • Workload and resource planning
  • Providing training, support and guidance to members of the teams
  • Reviewing and improving existing systems and procedures, implementing new ones where necessary
  • Supporting production in order to minimise problems and improve efficiency
  • Working closely with the sales team to ensure customers’ expectations in respect of technical matters are being met
  • Actively participating in senior management meetings, contributing to business strategy.

This is an ideal opportunity for an experienced technical person looking to move into a more senior role and take an active part in the development and growth of the business. Ideally the successful candidate will be a chemist with excellent man management skills and at least 10 years experience, preferably with a personal care or pharmaceutical products manufacturer. Working knowledge of creams, lotions, gels and liquid formulations is essential, as is experience of GMP and Cosmetic Products Safety Regulations. Inovia offer excellent working conditions and a competitive salary.
