This role will initially play a primary role in shaping the strategy for an integrated digital laboratory systems landscape to ensure the efficient and effective flow of data from a diverse array of laboratory equipment. This will include a hands on role in the implementation, roll out and future support, collaborating with colleagues from various functions in the organisation.

Responsibilities will be for the maintenance and support of systems within a cross functional team, which will include but not limited to a LabVantage LIMS implementation.

The role requires a diverse skillset, including a detailed orientated approach to application troubleshooting and data analysis and the ability to collaborate directly with end-users and IT colleagues around multiple sites to maintain existing IT systems.

  • Taking ownership of daily first and second level support
  • Leading and/or participate in IT projects using agile methodologies
  • Helping shape the strategy for an integrated digital laboratory systems landscape
  • Problem solving using detailed data analysis and creative thinking
  • Configuring (and where necessary, customise) and test solutions to ensure they meet business needs

What we offer:

  • Exposure across several key global groups and the opportunity to work with people from around the world, gaining an understanding of a commercial business as a whole
  • Build a stimulating, long-term career with an inclusive company that values everyone as an individual.
