Innovative and Cutting-Edge Food, Science, and Pharmaceutical jobs
Speak to an Expert
As the world becomes increasingly technology-dependent, the range of businesses emerging around the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths STEM areas continues to grow. This, in turn, has led to higher demand in occupations relating to STEM.
Due to this, Northern Ireland has become a hub for cutting-edge research and innovation in life and health sciences. For example, the Precision Medicine Centre of Excellence is a £10 million initiative from Invest Northern Ireland and Queen's University Belfast. It is an internationally accredited laboratory and is focused on diagnostics that can be used to predict a cancer patient's response to treatment. This allows potentially costly drugs to be used more effectively.
Life and health sciences sector employs over 8,800 people in over 200 companies across Northern Ireland. With candidates in such high-demand, we connect businesses and exceptional individuals to ensure this future-focused and ever-evolving industry has the best talent to drive it forward.
Food and drink is a £5 billion industry in Northern Ireland and is the region's largest manufacturer, accounting for 32% of manufacturing sales and 22% of manufacturing export sales. It is reported that there will be 15,000 potential job opportunities across the food supply chain in the next five years.
