I worked with Hays to find me a new challenge following my post at IQVIA. They were excellent throughout the process from initial call through to offer negotiation and kept me updated throughout. If I were to ever look for a new challenge or recruit for my team, Hays would be my first point of call

Yes, life sciences/pharma employers are struggling to find the talent they need. So, with employability prospects being high for life science jobs, if you see a vacancy, you're interested in that matches your skills and experience – now is the perfect time to apply.

While technical skills are important for life science jobs, employers are also looking for soft skills. The soft skills currently in-demand for life science professionals include problem-solving, communication and interpersonal skills, the ability to adopt change, flexibility and adaptability, as well as critical thinking skills.

Completing a bachelor’s degree in a related science field is the most common way of becoming qualified. Internships are also an option that combine classroom learning with hands on practical training. These tend to be shorter than degrees and allow you to go straight into work or study further.  

Additionally, industry or field related certifications are also important to have. There are certifications you can get in certain fields to enhance your knowledge and skills.  

There are pros and cons to both. Contractors have the potential to earn more money than permanent staff due to typically being paid on a day-rate basis. They can also gain broader experience working on short-term projects. Whereas life science jobs that are permanent offer job security, a steady flow of income and holiday/sick pay.

As a contractor, the hourly rate for a Biostatistician is of $75 - $95 and for a Quality Assurance Auditor it is of $45 - $55/hr.

Life Science jobs that are permanent offer job security, a steady flow of income and holiday/sick pay. A Biostatistician can earn between $140,000 and $195,000, and a Quality Assurance Manager between $110,000 and $140,000.
