Finding employment

Where do I go to for information and links to pharmaceutical companies?

This website does not advertise jobs, but what it does do is provide information on the wide variety of opportunities within pharmaceutical, and contract research, companies, in the UK.

You can see some of the many different types of jobs that people do, and find out how they got into these roles, through viewing case studies of people working in the industry.

You can also learn more about these areas of work in the section on Working in the industry. For example, research and development, sales, marketing, manufacturing and supply are but a few of the many areas you could enter within this sector.

There are also links to the websites of the companies that are members of ABPI – most are pharmaceutical companies, some are contract research organisations and a few are companies that recruit for the industry, for a full list see the Pharmaceutical recruiters section. Contact them directly (using the contact details found on their websites) for graduate training opportunities or other available vacancies.
