Hiring in Life Sciences Up Globally

Tuesday, November 02, 2010 at 12:00:00 AM


Life sciences hiring in the third quarter was up, according to the ZRG Partners Global Life Science Hiring Index. But unless workers were employed in Europe, Asia or Africa, they probably didn’t notice; the Americas actually saw a decrease in hiring that bucked the otherwise positive global trend.

Asia Pacific drove a 20 percent increase in hiring, while Europe/Middle East/Africa pushed a 10 percent hiring increase in the life sciences industry in Q3. The Americas saw a 2 percent decline in hiring. The index shows the good news in the Americas stemming from a 23 percent increase in hiring in life sciences research and development; all other work roles – sales and marketing, IT, finance, general and executive – saw drops in Q3 hiring.

Pharma, biotechnology and medical device and supply helped push the hiring increases, but outsourcing and services showed flat hiring.
