Pharmaceutical Industry

The pharmaceutical industry depends on specialist knowledge more heavily than most other industries and while pharmaceutical companies remain “employers of choice”, the power to attract and retain the best talent in the market is no longer a given.

Overview

The pharmaceutical industry offers a wealth of job opportunities and career prospects at each stage of the drug life cycle, be it drug discovery, development or commercialisation. As a recruitment agency, we are mostly focused on the latter two stages, starting with clinical operations and fully covering the commercialisation phase.

Functions

Our expertise in pharmaceutical recruitment covers all essential drug development and commercialisation activities.

Clinical operations

Clinical operations refer to the activities associated with the planning, execution, and quality control of the clinical studies from study start-up to close out.

Commercial operations

Marketing function is to help life science companies commercialise their products, whether by bringing medicines to local markets or identifying new research and development opportunities. Commercial activities focus on analysing the needs of a given market and developing communications about specific therapies and products.

Market Access

Market access has evolved into a separate organisational function that integrates pricing, reimbursement and patient advocacy. It is a process of ensuring that patients have access to treatments and medicines at the right price.

Medical Affairs

Medical affairs is a department within pharmaceutical or medical device companies that focuses on communication with healthcare providers.

Pharmacovigilance

Pharmacovigilance is a critical public health function in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies that monitors the safety of medicines and takes action to reduce the risks throughout a product's life cycle, from preclinical development to post-market surveillance.

Quality Assurance

The quality assurance function helps life science organisations accomplish their objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve risk management and internal control processes. Quality professionals are responsible for promoting and ensuring compliance with appropriate standard operating procedures and good quality practices.

Regulatory Affairs

Regulatory affairs play a crucial role in the highly regulated environment in which life sciences companies operate. The function is involved in all stages of product development and is key to obtaining a marketing license. It ensures that companies comply with the regulations and laws applicable to the pharmaceutical and medical device industries.
