This year’s prestigious Pharma Industry Awards will take place tomorrow, Thursday 22nd October, at the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin 4. The event offers an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the work of top performing individuals and corporates within the highly competitive pharmaceutical sector, ranging from those in start up phase to other well established household names. Presentations will be made in respect of the pharma, biopharma and biotech companies of the year as well as recognising achievements relating to research, partnership alliances, operational excellence, education & training, health & safety, innovation and sustainability initiatives.

From an executive search perspective, the pharma/life sciences sector has been particularly dominant throughout 2015 in terms of hiring senior level professionals for a suite of key leadership roles, outperforming many other industries in this regard; the scope and diverse mix of opportunities on offer across Finance, Tax, HR, R&D, Sales & Marketing and Supply Chain is attracting top tier domestic as well as global talent. We expect this trend to be in evidence again in 2016 as Ireland continues to be a location of choice for indigenous and international companies in this space.

We at Accreate have established many long-standing relationships with pharma sector business partners, both in Ireland and abroad. We look forward to sponsoring the ‘Pharma Leader of the Year’ category at tomorrow’s awards ceremony and to networking on the night with an estimated 400 professionals in the industry. Perhaps we will see you there!
