The pharmaceutical industry is a vast and complex sector that develops, produces and markets licensed products to be used as medication. This includes drugs, pharmaceuticals, and biopharmaceuticals.

The pharma industry is constantly evolving to meet the market’s demand for new and improved medications / therapies. Quality, safety and sustainability are paramount, and everything a pharmaceutical company does is subject to strict regulations and laws that govern how they test, patent and market their products.

There are many different careers available in the pharmaceutical industry. Key areas include R&D, manufacturing and marketing – be it for the company’s own products or on behalf of another business (see CMO / CRO). You may find yourself working with brand medications, generics or biosimilars, as well as medical devices. Dosage forms can range significantly, from tablets and capsules to liquids, ointments, creams, steriles, parentals, and so on. The type of molecules a pharmaceutical or biopharmaceutical company might work with can also vary.

It should come as no surprise that the pharmaceutical industry, being such a diverse market, employs a broad range of specialist skill sets across all scientific and commercial disciplines. This makes the pharma industry a challenging yet rewarding sector to be a part of, with all sorts of exciting career opportunities to choose from.
