Almac Launches Recruitment Drive to Fill up to 20 New Positions
June 5, 2014
Almac is creating up to 20 new positions at its headquarters in Craigavon, most of which will be “high-value” jobs, the company has announced.
The pharmaceutical development company has launched a recruitment campaign, Challenge Yourself, with jobs available ranging from project co-ordinators and project managers to supply chain managers, project leaders and design managers.
Most of the jobs will be based in Almac’s Clinical Business Units, but the company is keen to highlight that candidates do not need to have a scientific background to gain employment.
Almac is holding a recruitment day for project management positions at the Europa Hotel, Belfast, on Wednesday June 18 and staff are keen to meet anyone who thinks they fulfil the requirements for the new jobs.
Dr Kelly Neill, Almac’s Head of Project Services for the UK, commented: “As a global company providing unique services, demand from clients all over the world continues to grow.
“To service that need, we currently have some fantastic opportunities for candidates who are interested in being involved in making a positive difference to human health.
“Working in project management with Almac provides many opportunities for career advancement and those who secure jobs with us face the exciting challenge of working with a dynamic, innovative organisation which offers extremely competitive rewards and benefits.
“We are looking for ambitious people with experience of project management, not necessarily in a scientific area, but there are also vacancies for high calibre graduates.”
Almac provides an extensive range of integrated services to over 600 companies globally within the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors including all the world leaders and the company has seen significant growth in the past few years with staff retention rates remaining high.
It now employs over 3,300 staff across its operations in Craigavon, the US – in Pennsylvania, North Carolina and California and its recently opened hubs in Singapore and Japan.
