With the number of new jobs in Science, Pharmaceutical & Food set to continue to rise again in 2020, a career in the Quality & Laboratory sector represents a great opportunity for those with the right skills and qualifications. Throughout 2019, we have seen a huge growth in this sector mainly due to company expansions and investments. Future-proofed industries such as Pharmaceutical and Medical Device companies are booming, and continue to be key contributors to the Irish economy and a major source of employment across the country.
We have seen an increase in demand for experienced Quality Engineers and Qualified Persons across the country with a focus on the Midlands and West of Ireland. Salaries and benefit packages are steadily increasing across the board as the demand for high calibre candidates intensifies. Many candidates are choosing to leave Dublin due to the cost of living and availability of housing. Companies outside of the capital have recognised this trend and are increasing their packages in order to attract this sought after talent.
