Regulatory Landscape Newsletter – October 2022

This is our Regulatory Landscape newsletter for October 2022 with our monthly insights on the evolving market for regulatory professionals.   

We are definitely seeing a slowdown in Regulatory hiring over the past few months. For the month of September, there were only 75 new Regulatory jobs posted across the country at small and midsized bio/pharma companies. This is down 47% from last September, and it’s one of the lowest months so far this year.  

72% of the roles were Director level or higher, but there were only five new Regulatory VP positions in September.  47% of roles were listed as remote and 13% were hybrid home/onsite positions. Of special note:  companies in Massachusetts posted more remote and hybrid Regulatory roles than onsite positions this month. 

There were layoffs at six biotech companies in the month of September.
