Design Control Manager

The medical devices your team work on will transform the lives of the patients who use them.

The use of inhaled therapies opens opportunities to reach more people, delivering medicines more effectively to the people who need them.

Your team ensure our devices meet design requirements.

About the role

Although our devices are designed to be simple to use, there’s a lot of thought and some interesting technology that goes into making them that way. Your team will be supporting all of our current and future platform development too, at each stage throughout their lifecycle.

This is a newly created role, where you will lead a small, highly professional team of Design Assurance Engineers. You will be supporting them by ensuring we have the best processes and systems in place, providing day-to-day leadership, and acting as a technical authority.

Your team will lead the validation and verification activities for all our inhaled devices projects, but you will also be involved in developing requirements as well. Throughout the project, they will manage project documentation and Design File History, supported by you.

What you need

You’ll have a strong working knowledge of verification and validation of medical devices and the background development processes.

We need a good level of experience in working to international standards and guidance relevant to medical devices e.g. ISO13485 and 21 CFR Part 820.

Any experience of managing, leading, or mentoring would be a big advantage, but we will consider people who can demonstrate the behaviour to develop as a manager.


This is a role with lots of variety, where you can make a meaningful impact on products that sustain lives.

You will also be able to make an impact on your team too, helping to develop the way they work, and supporting their development.

The diversity of the role means you will be learning and growing continuously, in a company that supports and recognises its people. If this sounds interesting we’d love to hear from you. Apply today for further details.
