CHALLENGES IN THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY

We have seen the ongoing exodus of pharmaceutical companies relocating manufacturing facilities and other business units to offshore locations. Business acquisitions and mergers within Australia also pose threats and uncertainty to the number of positions available within our industry. What is driving this change is it market demands, cost of local manufacture, outsourcing to contract manufacturers or unskilled personnel? How will our industry sustain and what emerging trends do we need to be aware of to ensure that our knowledge and skillset will guarantee longevity within the industry.

This seminar will provide an insight into some of the challenges currently faced within the industry from the perspective of training, recruitment and employer requirements. We will be informed as to how to become “work ready”. We will then be updated on what employment opportunities are being requested by industry. Finally, we will get an understanding of what positions are evolving and being created by an employer due to challenges of new markets and regulations.
