The pharmaceutical industry makes up the part of the medical sector that is involved with the development, manufacture and marketing of medicinal products, including veterinary medicines and medical devices. These products aim to prevent, treat and cure diseases, as well as maintain health in animals and humans.
The regulations surrounding the pharmaceutical industry are very strict and are required to monitor the safety and efficacy of the manufactured medicines. International Regulatory Bodies that cover the pharmaceutical industry include; the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency) in the United Kingdom, the WHO (World Health Organisation) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) of the USA.
If you want to work in an industry that looks to improve peoples lives, then a pharmaceutical job would definitely allow you to do that. Whether it's a technical position you want to work in, there are opportunities in research and development, quality control, regulatory affairs; or if it's a more commercial position, a job in marketing and sales will still allow you to play a part in improving the lives of others.
Opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry have never been greater. According to the ABPI (the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry), there are 73,000 people employed in pharmaceutical jobs in the UK and due to the coronavirus pandemic, the demand for skilled workers to join the industry is greater than ever. The pharma industry has played a huge part in the global recovery from the pandemic, with companies such as Pfizer and Astra Zeneca creating vaccines that will eventually allow our lives to return to normal. In addition, due to the high profile nature of these medicines, pharmaceutical recruitment agencies have also seen a significant increase in demand from individuals wanting to join the industry.
It is not only the Global market that is thriving. Investment in the UK pharmaceutical industry has also been gradually increasing over the last few years with the sector being responsible for a significant contribution to the country’s economy. Significant investments are being made in Science Parks across the UK with a focus on Research and Development in the pharmaceutical industry, including; Manchester Science Park, The North East Technology Park, (NETPark) and Cambridge Science Park to name but a few.
Careers in the pharmaceutical industry are very diverse due to the dynamic nature of the sector. There are a wide range of disciplines to choose from when pursuing a career in this sector, depending on your qualifications and capabilities.
