Mentholatum is a global health and wellness company specialising in muscle and joint care. Our famous brands include Deep Heat, Deep Freeze and Deep Relief. Based in East Kilbride, we develop, manufacture and market quality consumer healthcare products. Our Research and Quality Development team is looking for a Pharmacovigilance Executive, whose duties will include:

  • Acting as deputy Qualified Person for Pharmacovigilance (QPPV) for Mentholatum UK;
  • Assisting in the management of the system of pharmacovigilance ensuring that all legal obligations are fulfilled;
  • Handling consumer and healthcare professional enquiries and complaints relating to product safety;
  • Preparing documents for regulatory submissions.

Experience of pharmacovigilance is not essential. You’ll be a pharmacist or have a degree-level qualification in a life science subject. You may already be working in a pharmacy or in industry. You’ll definitely have a thirst for knowledge and a desire for a role that allows you to make a difference. You’ll have the ability to advise patients and healthcare professionals with confidence and accuracy whilst remaining customer focussed.
We’re looking for people with a genuine passion for consumer healthcare, recognising that these products enhance the quality of life for those who use them. You’ll have the ability to build strong relationships with your colleagues including those operating in other parts of the company. You’ll have the personality to contribute to our positive working environment and help enhance a workplace that’s already innovative, productive and fun. We’re offering you an exciting career opportunity and a chance to broaden your professional horizons.
