Global Quality Trainee Program
The demand for quality at Fresenius Kabi is not only related to product quality. It is one of our Company values and thus integral guideline for our activities, for our business practices and processes along the entire value chain.
Fresenius Kabi has established a Global Quality Management System which covers all activities from Development to Manufacturing to Sales and Marketing. The QM System is integrated into the organizational structure of the company on a global divisional, regional and local level and it is applied in all our plants and market units around the globe.
Entering as a trainee in the Global Quality Trainee program gives the unique opportunity to learn about and to contribute to that system in an international environment.
“I am a graduated Pharmacist and I entered Fresenius Kabi as Trainee in 2010, starting at the Global Quality Organization.
In a first step I got an introduction into Fresenius Kabi´s QM System, its regulatory guidelines and organization as well as into the product portfolio. I assisted in writing SOPs and generating statistics and overviews. With increasing knowledge I took over small projects and coordinated international teams in generating harmonized standards for Fresenius Kabi.
After that I spent some months in our production site in South Africa to support them in the preparation of an authority inspection. Here I had the possibility to gain detailed knowledge about our manufacturing operations and quality control. Additionally, I had the opportunity to spend 3 months in one of our Compounding Centers to learn the specialties of these processes.
Coming back, I contributed to the harmonization of the processes in our compounding centers, which was a perfect fit to my educational background as Pharmacist, my gained QM knowledge and manufacturing experience.
At present, I am a Quality Manager in a Divisional Quality role. I have been involved in the generation of a global electronic Quality Management system which is now rolled out. I support the local organizations and provide them with training. Additionally, I am a Quality auditor and perform audits around the globe in our Compounding Centers. Still I am a Subject Matter expert for compounding.
Fresenius Kabi is always a challenging and demanding environment but provides great opportunities for passionate people who focus on excellence, based on our Company Values. I especially appreciate to collaborate with people from different cultures and to travel internationally.“
