Regulatory Landscape Newsletter – December 2022

Happy holidays! This is our Regulatory Landscape newsletter for December 2022 with our monthly insights on the evolving market for regulatory professionals.   

For the month of November, there were 85 new Regulatory jobs posted across the country at small and midsized bio/pharma companies. This is up 15% from October, and very similar to the job numbers we saw last November.  

The majority of these positions (74%) are in Clinical Regulatory Strategy with 14% in CMC Regulatory.  About 70% of these roles were Director level or higher.  There were 13 new VP/SVP Regulatory roles posted in November, which means there are around 45 VP/SVP RA roles currently open. 

40% of the new Regulatory positions posted in November were in Massachusetts and California. Remote/hybrid positions increased from 30% in October to 45% in November.  We have also noticed that several roles which were originally posted as being onsite have recently switched to remote or hybrid. 

Although hiring remains strong, there were layoffs announced at 22 biotech and pharma companies during the past month. 

Our latest search is for a Regulatory Affairs AD or Director position in the Philadelphia area.  You can see the job description here:
