IT Lead Industrial Technology (Environment)




IT Project Management Office (PMO)

Project description:

At our client, every day starts like: “how can I help to improve the lives of patient living with severe disease”. At our client it also is recognized that data and technology are instrumental in the way we invent, develop, manufacture and market our innovative drugs to deliver patient value and improving patients experience in new and ambitious ways.
To manufacture the client's innovative medicines we are creating smart factories that are interconnected (IoT) , are fully automated, have predictive capabilities (digital twins, yield optimization) and are adaptive (more an aspiration now).
In order to drive this manufacturing transformation journey, we are looking for a unique individual to strengthen our team.
As the IT Lead Industrial Technology, you will ensure that all the manufacturing and laboratory equipment is protected against cyberattacks, that the technology is resilient and that the data is not compromised, all directly contributing to an efficient and trusted supply of the client's medicines to our patients. You will collaborate with the manufacturing operating team as well as with various IT teams like the cybersecurity and infrastructure team.
You will be based in Braine-l’Alleud (Belgium) and are part of the global organization with responsibilities extended to other production plants (Switzerland, China and Japan).
