Ireland’s prowess as a global biopharma and life sciences hub is a story in itself, and the future is looking bright. The life sciences industry in Ireland continues to thrive, with a number of well-defined pharma, medtech and biotech clusters benefiting from considerable recent investment. Which leads us to ask, what trends are we currently seeing for candidates in the life sciences sector?
It’s a candidate’s market, and as our results show that 75% of our technical professionals surveyed intend to look for jobs in 2019/2020. The below infographic will give you some insight into what;
(Tip: It is no surprise that the Munster area is the most popular since a huge amount of the life science industry is based around Cork. Be prepared to relocate if you want to work for one of these organisations)
(Tip: This is an experienced job market. Ensure that your experience on your CV and LinkedIn profile really stands out)
These 3 points may make you more confident in your decision.
People stay and move to Ireland because Ireland offers a great culture, quality of life and lots of career opportunities
Recruitment agencies: Working with a specialist recruiter such as CK or CareerWise gives you access to a wider range of jobs. Try to build a relationship with a recruiter so they contact you before a job is even advertised to the market.
LinkedIn: If you’re interested in a new job, ensure your CV is on LinkedIn. Some Recruiters such as CK Group also have LI Recruiter licences that are only available to recruitment firms. These licences give us a much larger network of clients and candidates, which in turn will give you a wider job search.
Job Boards: CK and CareerWise advertise most of their jobs on Irish Jobs, Indeed and CV Library for example but to get access to the jobs before the rest of the world, check our own websites regularly.
