Regulatory Landscape Newsletter – August 2021

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

In July we saw a 35% decrease in new Regulatory job postings from June. It’s fairly typical to see fewer new job postings in July and August, but this is still a notable decrease. Altogether there were about 100 new Regulatory openings posted during the month of July at smaller biotech and pharmaceutical companies. The majority of these (63%) were in Regulatory Strategy roles and 27% were CMC Regulatory.  About half of all roles posted in July were at the Director or Associate Director levels.  It was also notable that remote regulatory postings increased to 23% of all roles last month, up from an average of 14% for the first half of this year.
