CK Group is exhibiting at the upcoming RQA Annual Conference

Between November 9th and 11th CK Group will be exhibiting on stand 14 at the 2016 RQA Annual Conference which is being held at the Hilton Brighton Hotel Metropole.

CK have long been an advocate of the RQA and have attended the Annual Conference for many years. With a long history of helping to source and place highly qualified QA professionals into pharmaceutical, biotechnological, medical device and scientific organisations, CK feel a natural affinity to the goals and objectives of the RQA.

With this year’s event looking at the emerging challenges faced by the industry as they try to balance increasing innovation, transparency and risk-based approached against the drive towards reducing costs and working more efficiently and effectively. As a result there are shifting requirements from the industry which is forcing the traditional role of QA to change, moving towards a more proactive quality solution orientated responsibilities. The role of a QA professional has to become a more active role with a view to adding value to the organisation.

CK’s Jim Gleeson and Jason Johal will be on hands throughout the event on stand 14 to provide advice and support to employers and QA professionals.

If you would like to arrange a confidential chat at the event, or you would like to discuss your current circumstances with a consultant, please contact them on the details below:
