This is an exciting opportunity to join an early-stage medical device business, with a technology led product currently in use by research institutes and academia. The Founder and Leadership team are medical and technology experts with limited manufacturing and supply chain know how. They are looking for the support of a Interim Supply Chain Director to work closely with their suppliers to drive down the cost to manufacture and position them for significant growth over the next 1-5 years.

The device is a fully mobile connected device with a sophisticated ability to collect and crunch data in the cloud. The supply chain is small but incredibly specialist, and the regulatory environment is challenging. There are different regulations for both the physical device and the embedded software in the device. And there are new versions coming to market over the next 12 months. They also expect to get FDA approval during 2021 which will create a significant increase in demand for their product. 

The suitable candidate will meet the following criteria:

  • Extensive experience of DFM
  • Demonstrable experience of working with new products from low volume prototype through to rapid ramp-up
  • Prior experience of working with regulated products, preferably medical devices although any connected device experience could be valuable, for example, mobile phones or wifi/Bluetooth enabled products
  • Significant Supply Chain experience
  • Demonstrable experience of working in large fast paced environments, as well as having worked with academics in a manufacturing environment
