GxP Systems finding it hard to fill engineering vacancies in Cork
Cork-based regulatory compliance consultancy and project management services provider GxP Systems is looking to hire 20 engineers immediately to bring its workforce up to 60 people.
GxP Systems is looking for automation, electrical, mechanical, manufacturing, validation and quality engineers with regulatory experience. The positions are primarily in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors.
“There seems to be a shortage of engineers available in Ireland,” said Conor Wall, CEO, GxP Systems.
"Every single client company that pressed pause 18 months ago owing to uncertainty in the markets is switching back on. As a barometer of the state of Ireland’s economy, this increased demand for skilled engineers is a positive sign and something we haven’t seen for a long time. However, it is proving extremely difficult to recruit experienced engineers.”
Set up in 1997, GxP Systems helps its clients to get drugs and medical devices approved by the FDA (US Food and Drugs Administration).
“We are currently seeing a marked increase in demand within our existing customer base coupled with requests from new customers looking for professional help with regulatory issues."
The company is headquartered in Cork, with offices in Galway and Boston in the US.
