Finding a job and recruiting in 2021

PharmaJobs understands the pressure on finding a job and recruiting so it’s making some changes to help recruiters and job seekers in 2021.

As we begin the New Year, many of us are wondering what 2021 has in store. COVID-19 has changed the face of the world, including the working practices of the pharma industry.

Whilst some areas of industry are going strong, others – especially the pharma sales force, have seen furlough, job losses and fundamental changes to the way they engage with healthcare professionals.

There’s no doubt that the furlough scheme has reduced the number of redundancies across all industries in the UK, but as this comes to an end there’ll inevitably be a rise in jobseekers.

This could also include new entrants to industry from the NHS; those who have worked throughout the pandemic and no longer feel that’s the path for them. Recent reports have highlighted the immense impact of caring for Covid patients on NHS staff.1

With an increase in jobseekers comes a reduction in available roles. Industry is, understandably, evaluating the way it works and the efficiencies that can be gained from digital interactions and virtual engagements. Recent research from Accenture states that face to face meetings between healthcare professionals and sales teams are unlikely to return to pre-pandemic levels: “Virtual engagement with pharma field representatives is here to stay.”2

It means that the equation doesn’t work, more people entering the job market with fewer positions available. This makes it tough for both candidates and recruiters looking to build their teams with the best talent.
