Nadia Javid is a Senior GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) Analyst and Deputy Quality Assurance (QA) Facility Auditor

After graduating in Biochemistry, Nufarm was my second job, joining as a GLP Analyst in 2011. Having gained the necessary experience, I moved into a Senior GLP Analyst role which in turn led to my promotion to Deputy QA Facility Auditor.

As a GLP analyst and Senior GLP Analyst, I was undertaking chemical analysis on herbicides in compliance to GLP regulations. I trained in various analytical techniques such as: HPLC, GC, GC/MS, Viscometer and FT-IR, validated analytical methods, supervised and mentored other team members and tracked all aspects of several assigned studies from study set-up to reporting stage.

As a Deputy QA Facility Auditor, I provide the GLP facility with a quality assurance service to ensure that the regulatory studies performed follow the principles of GLP. I perform process and study-based audits, draft and final report audits, maintain records of inspections and audits of all quality assurance reports. I also do auditing of other miscellaneous documentation such as SOPs and validation documentation, plus carrying out facility audits.

The diversity of the work that I do ensures that no day is like any other. I also love the people I work with and the work-life balance, there is a positive working environment
