Our client company is a rapidly growing and privately owned consumer goods company with interests in personal care, home care and the nutritional/supplement markets. The company has recently hired a VP for regulatory and product safety matters. One of her first priorities in building a group is to hire an experienced toxicologist/product safety professional.

The VP would like to hire a person with a PhD in Toxicology, or a related science, and at least a few years of experience in product safety and/or ingredient risk assessment. Experience in the consumer goods, chemical, food or related industries is desired.

The initial responsibilities will include safety assessment of finished products and ingredients, to include preparation of the necessary dossiers for global regulatory authorities, internal and external collaboration on product safety matters and assuring compliance with global inventory regulations (REACH, TSCA etc.).

Since the function is new within the company, the VP to whom this job reports will seek a person with good organizational skills to help envision the future of the department, to include an expanded product safety function.

Uniquely, the company is located in the Rocky Mountain states, adjacent to some of the West’s outdoor recreational assets, with a slower pace of life than the places where many consumer companies are located. At this time the hiring manager is seeking a person willing to relocate, with some possibility the position will be filled remotely, with periodic travel to headquarters.
