The client.

International pharmaceutical group active in sterile filling with several locations in Germany and over 10,000 employees in 2016.

Challenge.

Class A clean room for sterile production to be converted to a Class D clean room with isolator. Company is looking for an HVAC project manager for an estimated period of 2 years. Permanent position is out of the question as this is a one-off project. No freelance resource possible. Client must have authority to give instructions. Resource vice versa. Staff leasing impossible, as client has no headcount and expert is not to be taken on. Client needs a consultant permanently employed by Entourage to support the client on site.

Approach.

Entourage works with the client to determine which service offering best suits their needs. Hire the appropriate project resource and provide it to the client on a project-by-project basis.

Effort.

Vacancy filled within 8 weeks. Consultant with many years of experience with the market leader in sterile filling. The resource takes over project and construction management, can qualify and accept cleanrooms according to ISO standards and is responsible for pharmaceutical compliance issues.

Benefit.

Client receives authority to issue directives. The consultant of the entourage is operationally integrated into the company and receives authority to issue instructions. Avoidance of bogus self-employment through employee leasing and exclusion of risks from social security claims. The project can be extended indefinitely if necessary.

Highly qualified employee leasing.

  • Hiring out highly qualified scientists or engineers
  • Operational tasks with daily business tasks
  • Transfer of the authority to issue instructions to the client
  • Possibility of taking over and crediting the invoice to the brokerage commission

International contract manufacturer with locations on three continents. Fully utilised site in southern Germany with permanent customer audits and inspections by authorities.

Challenge.
Interim occupation of the production management. High time pressure in filling the project vacancy. No freelance resource possible. Project resource deeply involved in operational processes. Client must be authorised to give instructions.

Approach.
Identification of a suitable project resource. Employment of the technical pharmacist and transfer of the expert to the client.

Result.
Filling the vacancy within two weeks. Hiring out of the expert to the client with the option of taking over the interim head of production in a permanent position.

Benefit.
Ensuring the client's manufacturing capability through the use of a suitable expert. Avoidance of bogus self-employment through employee leasing and exclusion of risks from social insurance claims.

Challenge.

This requires classifying the existing product portfolio according to the new IVDR and conducting a gap analysis for the technical documentation of IVD products. Client needs a one-time resource, neither permanent nor freelance. Contract for work the best solution as works council does not need to be involved. Client pays for the result, Entourage takes care of the implementation.
