I'm recruiting for a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) TEchnologist for a global tobacco producer based in Southampton.
This is a new role for the company as they look to bring a service they currently outsource inhouse.


Chemistry Degree and Experience with Technical Documents

The Job

Your main responsibilities within this role;

Writing and Managing Safety Data Sheets

  • Receive requests from people via email. Some will be more urgent than others, so you'll need to manage multiple priorities etc.
  • Be given technical information, eg ingredient information (formula ingredients, levels) and also physical information (pH, viscosity, density). If there is data missing, search online to find the information.
  • Input this information onto a computer system which then determines if an SDS is required. If it is required, the system can then generate a Safety Data Sheet.
  • Get documentation checked by a reviewer.
  • Upload the documents to a shared teamspace/folder.
  • Maintain the teamspace, adding revised documents or removing expired/superceded ones.
  • Email the documents back to the requester.
  • Supply MSDS to the broader team. This may involved re-printing the SDS in a different language (the computer system can do this).

Managing the materials database within the computer system.

  • New materials (eg flavours) will need to be added to the database.
  • Superceded materials will need to be removed from the database.

I'm looking to speak to candidates ideally from a QA/Quality Assurance, Medical writing or Regulatory Affairs background.

You will ideally have the following skills/experience;

  • Degree in Chemistry or related scientific focus.
  • Writing and managing Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
  • Experience leading a team.
  • Ability to prioritise tasks effectively and to confidently identify and turn down low priority requests.

If you require further information on this role, please feel free to give me a call on 01489882556.
