Pharma Report with Cpl November 2020 – Engineering
Cpl and Vacancysoft
Recent events led governments to urgently call upon the pharmaceutical industry to innovate a way out of the current pandemic. As this report goes to press, the challenge appears to have been tentatively met.
Scientists and engineers led this charge, and the labor market data up to and including Q3 largely confirms how demand for their skills has increased. Overall professional recruitment volumes recovered and hold steady compared to 2019, with the UK and EU’s largest firms posting over 10,250 vacancies between July and September — 21% higher than Q2 2020.
Vacancies specifically for engineers, however, continued rising through Q2, where they amounted to 911 professional recruitments. In Q3 this increased slightly to 1012 vacancies, a month-on-month climb of 11%. On this trajectory, 2020’s total will surpass last year’s by 17%.
