20 biopharma companies aim to fill 3,000 positions at Nibrt career event
More than 500 prospective candidates are expected to be matched up with bluechip biopharmaceutical companies at a careers event being held today, 5 May at the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (Nibrt) in Dublin.
Twenty companies including Amgen, Pfizer Grangecastle, BioMarin and Alexion are at the ‘Careers in Biopharma’ event recruiting for over 3,000 positions announced over the past year.
“The Irish biopharma industry is experiencing a fantastic period of growth and has been boosted by a stream of significant new investments in recent months,” said Dominic Carolan, CEO of Nibrt.
“With investment comes jobs and we are hoping this year’s ‘Careers in Biopharma’ jobs fair will match great candidates with suitable employers from across the industry.
“We recognise that the skills required for these jobs are very complex in their nature and we strive to address the skills gap in the industry.”
In addition to training around 3,300 people employed in the industry each year, Nibrt is actively involved in up-skilling people with manufacturing experience who are out of work through the Springboard initiative.
