What does a typical day in your job involve?
Working in a busy Quality Department within Almac means no two days are the same! There are two aspects to my role – in addition to my disposition role I am also a Line Manager and responsible for the Batch Review Team. My day starts off with a review of my calendar to identify availability and resource to enable batch review activities for the current day. Batches for QP review/release are distributed and then I prepare for the daily “walk the queue” meeting where representatives from various departments meet together to discuss the availability of batches for release and any constraints that are delaying progression of batches to final QP certification. Following this meeting I then prioritize batches for review and assign into the visual queue. The remainder of my day can consist of any of the following – attending meetings, dispositioning activities, documentation review and updates, recruitment, training for new and existing employees and generally ensuring everything runs as smoothly as possible.
