Your medical information recruitment questions, answered

Is it hard to find life sciences professionals at the moment?

It can be - life sciences employers are battling a candidate-short market, with 88% saying they experienced skills shortages during 2021; competition is high. For more information, check out our Salary and Recruiting Trends Guide.

What benefits do candidates in medical information roles expect?

Organisations should review their benefits schemes regularly to ensure they are meeting their employees' expectations. Our research indicates that flexible working arrangements, learning and development opportunities, and mental health and wellbeing support are some of the key benefits that staff would prefer their employers to focus on.

How can businesses attract a diverse range of candidates for medical information job vacancies?

Workplaces can benefit greatly from recruiting from a more diverse pool of candidates, as a varied workforce will bring a greater range of perspectives and potential solutions. Offering flexible working arrangements is a key way in which businesses can attract a diverse range of candidates, and they should consider widening the net to include fully remote professionals also.

What can organisations do to improve employee retention within medical information roles?

In order to retain staff, organisations need to make sure that they are providing job security, competitive salary and benefits packages, and scope for career progression. In a candidate-short market, with 69% of employers predicting higher competition for sought-after candidates in the next 12 months, companies need to prioritise employee retention.

How can I provide upskilling services to medical affairs professionals at my organisation?

You can upskill your employees in medical affairs roles by investing in an e-learning service or researching the free programmes available to your business. Hays Thrive is a readily available training platform that can be customised according to your company’s learning and development needs.
