QA Project Manager - ensure high-quality health care products


Humlebæk, DK

Job Family:  Quality Assurance
Country/Region:  Denmark

Do you want to ensure quality products for people with intimate health care needs? And would you like to play a hand in the development of new innovative products?

Then grab this opportunity to make your QA experience count as you work with products from initial idea all the way to market introduction. 


“You will be the advocate for quality in our products, giving you a lot of impact. What’s more, we offer a great work-life balance and a myriad of career paths,” explains Head of QA Project Management, Shahab Ghoochan.


Take centre stage at the heart of global quality 
Joining QA Project Management at our HQ in Humlebæk, you are welcomed by 11 fellow QA project managers with different levels of experience and various nationalities. Our task is to make sure that when new products are introduced to the markets, they are compliant and of the best possible quality for the user. The products we work with range across ostomy, continence, wound and skin care but also include electronics and embedded software solutions for medical devices.  


Even though we each work on our own projects, we also collaborate closely, sharing knowledge and helping each other achieve our goals. 

“And in addition to great colleagues within the team, you get to work with equally great colleagues from all areas of our organisation, earning you a huge network within Coloplast,” says Shahab.


You advocate quality and help bring forward new products 
As a QA project manager, you will participate in innovation projects as the quality representative, being accountable for the quality deliverables of the project. Thus, you will ensure product quality across design control processes, regulatory compliance and production. 
Doing so, you will manage a core team of specialists within regulatory, process validation, biosafety, supplier quality, shelf life, transportation testing, labelling and vigilance. Just as you will network and coordinate activities across a wide range of stakeholders.


Your tasks will be to:

  • Guide quality specialists and ensure on-time project deliverables
  • Assess, manage and mitigate product and project risks
  • Coordinate activities across project stakeholders, especially from production, R&D and Marketing
  • Present project milestones and issues to top management yourself
  • Optimise and update quality processes in collaboration with your team and other stakeholders


You should anticipate around 10-20 travel days per year, primarily to our production sites in Hungary, as well as to China and Costa Rica. Also, you will have the option to work from home approximately 1 day a week but probably no more than that, as it is crucial to remain accessible to your team and stakeholders. 

Hands-on QA experience and networking skills
Renowned for your effective communication skills, you confidently navigate interactions at both top management level and the production floor.


At the same time, you have the ability to articulate complex concepts with ease, fostering understanding and inspiring others along the way. 


Moreover, we imagine that you:

  • Have experience working with QA in R&D or production projects within the medical device industry
  • Are familiar with ISO13485 and US FDA demands
  • Speak and write English effortlessly


If you would like to know more about the position, please call Head of QA Project Management, Shahab Ghoochan on 49 11 30 13. We will take candidates into the recruitment process continuously, so do not hesitate to apply. This position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.
