Regulatory Landscape Newsletter – April 2021

This is our April 2021 Regulatory Landscape newsletter with monthly insights on the market for regulatory professionals.   

The Regulatory job market continues to heat up!  In the first quarter of 2021, Regulatory openings at small to mid-sized biopharma companies saw a 95% increase over the 4th quarter of 2020! This includes a 400% increase in remote Regulatory roles from last quarter! 

In March we saw over 200 new regulatory roles posted at smaller and mid-sized biotech and pharmaceutical companies.  About 60% of these roles were in Regulatory Strategy, 20% in CMC Regulatory, 10% in Advertising, Promotions & Labeling, and the remainder in Regulatory Operations, Regulatory Policy and Regulatory Intelligence.  Most of these positions were in Massachusetts or California and 15% of them were posted as remote roles.

  • Vice President of Clinical Regulatory Affairs (New Jersey)
  • Senior Director Regulatory CMC (SF Bay Area)
  • Associate Director, Regulatory Project Management (Remote)

Here are some of the positions that we are actively recruiting on for our clients this week:

In late March we decided to conduct a follow-up survey to better understand when people in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries might be going back into the office, and how they are feeling about it. It appears that senior company leadership is more eager to get back into the office than their employees are right now and you can see the full results of this survey here:
