Biotechnology Sector

Biotechnology is a natural industrial progression from the pharmaceutical sector, which has been thriving in Ireland since the arrival of Leo Laboratories in Crumlin in 1959. Since then it has been subject to heavy investment from some of the largest healthcare companies, with the largest biotech campus in the world being completed in west Dublin. There has also been large-scale investment in other companies in Cork and in other areas of the country. As a result, Ireland has steadily produced an increasing number of qualified scientists who are crucial to the current upkeep and expansion of this key export.
There are many strata to the industry, which employ people from all backgrounds, not only Science. The 3 main areas that biotech has the greatest effect are : agriculture, healthcare and industry. Agriculture concerns mainly the genetic engineering of plants. Healthcare encompasses all new and existing drug discoveries via microbes and associated life forms. Industry includes biofuels and new applications of same.According to the OECD, biotechnology will have an ever increasing influence in all 3 areas.

Medical staff, IT professionals, Business people and Engineers all play key roles in the successful operation of a biotech company in Ireland. We are therefore always looking to hear from people of all backgrounds who have experience in, and are looking to progress into, the Biotechnology industry. We will always be honest in our advice, and if we can't help you, we'll tell you that too!
