Job description

Role: Device Testing Consultant - Senior

Location: Cambridge

Salary: Negotiable

Work Type: Permanent - Hybrid Working

The Company & Role

This Cambridge based consultancy have won multiple awards in the medical sector for their novel approach to helping the world solve some of the most complex medical issues, whilst also developing truly life changing medical devices.

Working with the Head of Device Testing you will manage the technician team, and work alongside the project teams to strategise and deliver test work for clients. The Device Testing Group has been set up specifically to assist in testing medical devices from early development all the way through to shipping!

Sounds exciting! What will I be doing on a day-to-day basis?

  • Managing and developing your own team of technicians.
  • Leading the medical device development projects, within device testing.
  • Identification of key resources needed for projects – equipment, people and facilities.
  • Root cause analysis.
  • Write and detail high quality technical documents on testing for both internal and external use.

Great! I’ve done that before, but what are the essentials I need to be successful?

A track record in leading technical teams through planning and delivering a medical product testing programme. Experience having worked to ISO13485, 14971 and 21CFR Part 820. Working knowledge of test method and equipment verification and validation best practices. A degree in science, mechanical engineering, or life science.

So, I’m new to being a consultant, what makes a good one?

Great question! This consultancy work on the premise that all of their staff are methodical problem solvers with excellent analytical skills, including gathering of data and analysis. Being able to communicate complex medical scenarios and situations to non-technical clients is a key skill here, as is being able to work across multiple projects at once.

Other than that – great time management, an eagerness to learn and being calm under pressure are key qualities that a successful consultant will be able to always demonstrate.
