Talent in Science: A shifting world of work


Kelly's latest research explores skills shortages, fierce competition, and an increasingly mobile workforce in the Pharma and Medical Devices industries.

As a major player in the life-sciences recruitment industry, Kelly has witnessed these sectors grow in innovation, scope and profitability. This success is down to its most valuable resource – it’s people. However, we felt it was time to ask questions about what these people want, need and expect from the industry. In late summer 2018, we conducted our first ever Pan-European life sciences project to get answers.

Research was carried out in France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands with responses from almost 1,400 life sciences professionals. The results revealed data relevant to scientists, engineers and others working in research and development, medical and regulatory affairs as well as marketing and sales.

With key insights into these fiercely competitive sectors this is well worth reading. To access your copy of the report simply fill in your details, by signing up you are automatically accepting our privacy statement, which you can read in full here.
