HM Feedback:

Looking for people that have a GMP quality control background and have worked in a sample data management systems like LIMS or people that have a biopharma manufacturing background and is used to the regulated environment that we work in.

If they have process or method validation background that's a plus. The person should be comfortable with spreadsheets of data and should be detail oriented to track and coordinate the hundreds of samples that need to be tested and documented in various reports.

A PMP is not needed but the person should be organized and able to work with a cross functional team to complete tasks.

Seeing people with clinical trial experience which is hospital based and not manufacturing based.
