Biotech campaign: looking at career opportunities

This week as part of our biotechnology campaign we are looking at what career opportunities are available to those entering and progressing their career in manufacturing and production.

At this time the biotechnology industry is experiencing a period of massive growth which is directly impacting on the recruitment of new and experienced staff within the sector. We are now seeing a sharp increase in the demand for staff with new roles being created to help companies progress their product into market accurately and quickly.

The manufacturing side encompasses a wide array of jobs: manufacturing scientists, process scientists, operations management, quality control, site supervision, manufacturing process engineering, validation, quality assurance, supply chain and procurement.

With such a broad spectrum within Biomanufacturing there is a constant need for dynamic and innovative individuals who can cope with the constant fine-tuning to reinvention of manufacturing processes.
