Quality and Validation Market (Dublin & South East)

Fiona Durkin 28.03.2019

Let's take a look at the Quality and Validation market across Dublin and the South East..

In 2019 we have seen a levelling out of the Quality Assurance market with roles coming up at all echelons from Quality specialists and engineers right up to manager and director level. However the bulk of the roles have been at mid to senior level in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. 

The Dublin market is still predominately focused on the pharmaceutical/ biopharmaceutical industries but we are seeing some established and start up medical device companies also recruiting Quality candidates. We have also seen an increase in the requirement for RP (Responsible person) status and GDP experience with most clients looking for GMP experience also. More often than not pharmaceutical clients will require that quality managers (especially on manufacturing sites) are QP qualified. My 3 hot jobs in the Dublin market at the moment are an Incoming QA Specialist and a senior Quality Specialist for a major biopharmaceutical company and a Senior Quality Engineer for a combined device company. 

South East:
The south east market is the busiest that we have seen it in the past 3 years. There are opportunities across the region in Tipperary, Waterford, Wexford and Wicklow. We have seen a large increase in the number of Quality Engineers required in the region for medical device clients. The following are some jobs that I currently have open with medical device clients in the region Quality Engineer Waterford, Quality Engineer Wicklow, Quality Systems Engineer Tipperary and Supplier Quality Engineer Wexford.
