Pfizer is bringing 130 new jobs to sites across Dublin and Cork, which will bring its total employee base in the country to well over 3,300.

With manufacturing sites at Grange Castle (Dublin), Ringaskiddy and Little Island (both Cork), Pfizer’s pharma operations in Ireland are clearly significant.

The six sites owned by Pfizer cover shared services, R&D, treasury and commercial operations, with the latest jobs to be added across its manufacturing division.

The Ringaskiddy and Little Island sites are looking for process operators, mechanical and electrical/instrumentation craft, process engineers, process chemists, and quality control analysts.

“Pharmaceutical manufacturing in Ireland continues to perform well, contributing strongly to exports and economic growth, and providing good careers and jobs”, said Dr Paul Duffy, VP at Pfizer. Then added :

“Students should give strong consideration to studying STEM subjects, all of which provide a route into pharmaceutical manufacturing. This provides a good career path but also provides a chance to be part of delivering innovative medicines to patients to help treat devastating diseases”.

Grange Castle is looking to recruit around 90 people across areas like process scientists, process/equipment engineers, automation engineers, operations specialists, process technicians, QAs and project managers.

This is the second bout of good news for people seeking careers in the science field in a fiew time, with last week’s news of Grifols setting up in Ireland also a boon to the Grange Castle area in South Dublin.
