Our team of consultants understand the process within medical device manufacturers, whether the product is hardware, software or diagnostics.

From building quality processes in production locations, establishing new CAPA and auditing systems to Vigilance activities, we spend our working days understanding the role of Quality professionals from start-ups with 10 people to the global players with 15,000+ employees.

Quality Management/Quality Assurance
No two roles in quality management are the same, and we know that each company has it's own challenges, projects and development plans that the QM function will bring to life.

Our network is built strongly on the foundation of knowing ISO 13485 and the documentation required for compliance, and from there understanding your focus in the device lifecycle.

Whether you are working broadly across the QM/RA topics or responsible for medical safety and CAPA - we have seen it all and want to hear about your challenges and aspirations.

CAPA and Validation
​From building new CAPA systems to be compliant with the MDR or establishing a risk management reporting structure compliant to ISO 14971, we know the challenges and project focusses going through the medical device industry at any one time

​Looking at manufacturing process validation and CSV, our network has technical expertise to comply with the quality standards requirements.

PMS and Vigilance
Medical device safety is always at the top of everyone's mind in this industry. Our consultants are constantly updating their knowledge with regards to post-market surveillance requirements, PMS and PSUR reporting.

We have supported candidates to be successful in roles where safety forms part of a broader role, or for larger medical companies who need a dedicated safety professional responsible for a proactive and comprehensive vigilance system.

Auditing and Supplier Quality Assurance
Whether you are looking after the devices during production in QA, responsible for MDSAP implementation or visiting suppliers to ensure they are adhering your company quality assurance agreements, our consultants have covered roles all fields.

We understand the importance of strong negotiation, communication and stakeholder management skills to drive the relationship forward a smooth, compliant route to market.

5 tips to get more out of your working day

5 tips to get more out of your working day Do you ever get the feeling that there are simply not enough hours in a day to get everything done? That feeling when you make your morning coffee, barely manage to get your admin under control, and somehow its 3pm already. Worry no more – we are here to help!Here are 5 tips to help you become a little bit more productive, work smarter (without longer hours) to get more value out of your working day...Step 1. PrioritiseEach morning, take a few minutes to go through the list of tasks set for the day, then try and evaluate their priority. These should be based on the urgency of the said task, time they might take, but also on how challenging or complex they may be. Start with the toughest, most time consuming first.Step 2. Time blockMake sure you set yourself time for each task and try and stick to it. I’m not going to lie, this does require some discipline, but trust me – it pays off. When setting time blocks be realistic and don’t overcommit - If you think a particular task will take minimum of an hour to complete, don’t block less than that, as you end up putting yourself under unnecessary pressure and by rushing, you run the risk of making mistakes. Oh, and I almost forgot, make sure to block some time for a little ‘’you time’         Step 3. is just as important: Breathe and take a breakIt is important to remember that breaks play a vital part in the building of an efficient working mind set. Walk away from your computer, grab some fresh air, socialise with your colleagues, or do anything else that you enjoy, that does not involve checking your email every 3 minutes or eating your sandwich by your desk. Recharge your batteries, so that when you return to working you are near a full tank and you have all the energy and brain space needed to finish the day with consistent momentum. Step 4. Complete what you startedThis ties in quite well with blocking your time and is just as important. If you start something, make sure to finish it before moving on to the next task. Focus on one thing at a time. Break down bigger projects into time blocks, especially if its ongoing or overwhelming at the start. Step 5. Remove distractionsSome tasks require laser focus, so turn off your email, shut down your Teams, turn your phone on Airplane mode, and let your co-workers know that you will be unavailable. According to a study by Microsoft researchers, it takes the brain 15 minutes to re-focus after switching our attention to something else. So if you’re constantly being interrupted, it’s going to take you a long time to get your work done. What tips would you recommend to get more value out of your working day?
