Principal Regulatory & Safety Manager

Job Number: AE1595

Location: Manchester

Salary: £80,000

Are you a senior-level regulatory and safety professional, with the knowledge and expertise to advise on complex problems in real time, in a fast moving and ever-changing environment?

Are you a highly motivated self-starter with an eye for detail, who can skilfully manage multiple projects with internal teams and external suppliers?

This is a rare opportunity to join a company that delivers bold competitive claims, fully supported by best in class safety and regulatory compliance. Their range of brands and products encompass the personal care, beauty, fragrance and household sectors. Key markets are the UK and Europe, with increasing opportunities for global expansion.

Coming from either a cosmetic R&D or perfumery background you will lead a team that ensures delivery of full regulatory compliance for all consumer products and fragrances in the UK, EU and other markets as required. A key aspect of your role will be to steer the company through the potential regulatory changes resulting from Brexit.

You will set standards and help to guide brands as they develop innovations and new products, providing advisory support on pack and online copy, performance claims and promotional materials.

You will oversee all aspects of product safety, managing PIFs, regulatory queries and ensuring cosmetovigilance. You will provide paperwork to support exports from the UK to international markets including Europe, Africa, US, China, India and Asia.

You will support fragrance development and compliance, working closely with both internal teams and external fragrance suppliers.

You have a full working knowledge of Cosmetic, REACH, Detergent, CLP regulations, and will head up advocacy and engagement of external bodies (CTPA, IFRA UK CPI).
