Pharmaceuticals Report: 2016 in Review

Clinical Professionals and Vacancysoft

February 2017

Key trends emerging include:

  • December 2016 was a 24-month low in terms of vacancies in the UK, it may be that Brexit-related fears have already become a driver for change.
  • There were fewer vacancies in CROs last year than in the previous year: 5% fewer in the UK and 26% fewer in the rest of Europe.
  • Most of the large companies advertised more vacancies in 2016 than in 2015; Roche grew by 29% year on year, GSK by 20% and Novartis by 16%.

This Friday brings another of our year-in-review reports. This week one of the flagship reports: produced in co-operation with Clinical Professionals, it covers the Life Sciences sector. Did H1 2016 see the sound levels of vacancies which some were predicting at the end of the previous year? What effects did the dreaded B-word bring in H2? In which direction might the market be moving in 2017 as the hardness (or softness) of Brexit becomes less unclear? Where in the UK were the hotspots of demand? And which specialisms were most and least in demand? It’s all in our report.
