Ireland is proud to be home to many major pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology companies, and these play a vital role in contributing to the Irish economy and employing many local graduates. If you are a science graduate or post-graduate in this sector, you may be interested to know that nine out of the top ten global pharmaceutical companies have plants located in Ireland.
Securing any job can be a challenging prospect, but if you’re seeking a high profile role within a pharmaceutical company, you can expect the field to be tough. The worldwide economic climate has ensured that competition for jobs continues, but the good news is that demand is high, and those with the commitment and the ambition to succeed are finding excellent and rewarding roles within this sector.
There are positions available across the pharmaceutical industry in Ireland, so graduates in these fields can specialise in the areas that suit them best. Talent and passion for your specialism is vital whichever position you choose, but this is a growing sector and there is no shortage of opportunity for the right people.
These roles are available across many different sectors of the pharmaceutical industry, including schools, universities, hospitals, laboratories, research agencies and drug manufacturers. The environmental sector is experiencing particularly rapid growth at present, and roles within this area are diverse. The voluntary sector offers major employment opportunities for pharmaceutical graduates, many of which are within organisations that address environmental issues. There is a great deal of opportunity for skill acquisition throughout these roles, and movement between fields is often encouraged to promote diversity and development.
The fact that many of the top pharmaceutical companies in the world have chosen to base themselves or a branch of their operations in Ireland means that many top graduates are employed in vital roles here.
