Contract Management Analyst (1-year Fixed Term Contract (FTC))
The Engineering function at the GSK Ware GMS (Global Manufacturing and Supply) site is responsible for the provision of technical expertise to support the manufacturing, automation and controls systems for all production operations to ensure production targets are achieved. Due to the sustained long-term expansion of the Ware site we have created a new role to help co-ordinate and manage the different contracts that the site relies upon to deliver its commercial objectives.
Please Note: This is a new role that has been introduced at the Ware GMS site to support waste reduction, identified as part of the GPS accelerator initiative. At this stage the role is a 1-year Fixed Term Contract (FTC) opportunity.
As Contract Management Analyst, reporting to the (Ware Manufacturing) Site Contract Process Owner, you will support the delivery of a Vendor cleanse data review as part of a wider business improvement project (called M-ERP implementation). This involves understanding the requirements of the Ware site's wide-range of contractual standards to ensure they are up-to-date, relevant, monitored and centrally managed. You will focus on maintaining an accurate Contract Register for the site to ensure that the status of the Contract Companies (Vendors) is aligned to the Ware GMS Site's requirements. A key element of the role is ensuring compliance with Quality and Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) regulations, as well as associated Global Engineering standards.
Day to day action in the role includes delivering data cleansing activities (to ensure optimum data maintenance for the Contract Register) to ensure that compliance is maintained (for department and site procedures, processes and systems). In addition to this, you will also manage data creations (changes to SAP vendor data) and review contract company details for accuracy. In your daily work you will proactively support best practice in the Contract Register review process by positively engaging with customers and stakeholders, ensuring relevant contract details are accurate. You will liaise / work with relevant stake-holders across the site (and above-site as applicable).
Throughout you will adhere to defined standards (5S and Standard work) to manage quality, safety and output.
As this role is multi-faceted and includes liaising with a wide variety of on-site production and operations teams, you will be a self-motivated individual who has strong experience of working at a complex manufacturing site (eg; complex processes and heavily regulated). This role would suit a self-motivated individual who has experience of working in cross-functional organization teams. You will have excellent attention to detail, as well as strong people skills. The successful person will be working with various staff across the Site and above Site functions, and it is therefore important that you have a flexible approach (building good relationships) with everyone to get the best results. Further to this you will have a continuous improvement mindset and strong demonstrable organisational skills. Experience and competence in the use of SAP and using databases (including Excel), and working with document storage IT systems is considered important.
During the application process, we are looking to see that applicants have a clear understanding of the complexities and importance of quality within a pharmaceutical manufacturing process.
