  • Maintaining the Quality Manual and applying a Quality Risk Management approach
  • Ensuring that contact on quality matters is maintained with the local Regulatory Authorities, the local vendors (wholesalers, service providers) as well as UCB Northern European area and Corporate Quality

  • Good quality auditing mindset, root cause and risk management/assessment skills.
  • Ability to effectively interact and communicate in Dutch, French and English (verbally and written) with internal and external stakeholders on projects, product and quality related matters.
