Most Popular Biotechnology Job Roles
Most Popular Locations for Biotechnology
Biotechnology, is an emerging and highly technical field, which concerns itself with the use of biological processes in order to aid technological advancement. Also known as the 'life sciences,' cellular manipulations can be used to fight new strains of disease, or in theory, even cure problems as big as world hunger. The industry produces about £3 billion in annual revenue in the UK and provides employment for more than 20,000 staff at some 300 businesses. The UK is one of the world's leading nations for biotechnology, and has won an impressive 23 Nobel Prizes for breakthroughs in the field. Considerable biotech research clusters exist in locations including Oxford, Edinburgh and Cambridge - and Agency Central lists many recruitment agencies in these areas.
Job roles and qualifications
Biotech Recruitment agencies report that many employment opportunities are available in the areas of Clinical Research, Chemical Engineering, and Warehouse Operations, as well as Clerical and Secretarial staff. Most of these roles require a relevant degree or masters but Biology-related courses are traditionally some of the most oversubscribed and competitive, with only around 20% of applicants being accepted. Professionals in the field are required not only to hold advanced academic degrees, but also to complete hands-on training programmes, (usually provided on the job), to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and the practical demands of the profession.
While many job roles in Biotech are degree-driven, there are non-graduate routes into the industry -namely in areas such as animal care. In this area, employers will mainly look for GCSEs and A-levels, but previous experience in caring for animals will weigh heavily on any prospects. On-the-job training will prove to be the most important aspect in this role but staff may later be encouraged to undertake an NVQ in Animal Technology.
London is the UK hub for Biotechnology, which is reflected in the significantly higher salaries found there, compared to the rest of the country. Nationwide salaries range from £20-55K, and the average salary in Biotech is about £30K. In London, however, that average rises to around £42K.
The largest employers for this field in the UK are Unilever Research, GSK, and Pfizer, with the latter frequently finding itself at the top of the big spenders list for research projects. A significant proportion of jobs are also university-affiliated, and PhD research accounts for a major part of the industry.
