Wasdell expands pharmaceutical team with Qualified Person appointment

Pharmaceutical packaging provider Wasdell has appointed Colin Newbould as Director of Regulatory Affairs and Qualified Person Services.

Colin has extensive experience and has worked across the world in the pharmaceutical industry, having worked on a number of diverse projects in Kenya, Fiji, New Zealand and Vanuatu.

In his new role, Colin will be responsible for the medicines which are processed and packaged by Wasdell at their Swindon headquarters, as well as those produced at their northern manufacturing base in Newcastle and packaging facility in Burnley.

Antonia takes up Deputy Manager role

Antonia Sines has recently become Acting Deputy Manager for First City Nursing, headquarted in Swindon, and has worked her way up from starting out as a care assistant just five years ago.

Having left school with no qualifications, Antonia found herself responsible for supporting herself and her young son, Harley.  She worked in a fish and chip shop to supplement her benefits but was looking for a job with more prospects.  Having seen her mum work as a carer when she was younger, and having spent time accompanying her on visits, the care sector was one that appealed.

Antonia is using her experience to head up a project into how First City Nursing can recruit and retain more people into the sector.  This includes breaking down the barriers people often face such as making the application process easier, identifying and attracting people with the right skills – even if they don’t have any care experience – and how to support them best through their careers.
