Pharmaceuticals

Dear pharmaceutical reps, pharmacists, product managers, sales reps and sales managers, buyers, controllers, chemists, quality managers, medical project managers, packaging engineers and process optimization specialists, some 10,000 of your colleagues are already working in Berlin's pharmaceutical industry.

By pharmaceutical industry, we mean the manufacturing and marketing of medicinal products for human and veterinary medicine – which includes proprietary drugs, serums, vaccines, blood preparations, in vivo diagnostics, allergen preparations and gene therapeutics. Pharmaceutical industries based in Berlin tend to focus more on research than on production. Research is carried out at Berlin universities, at non-university-affiliated research institutions like the Max Delbrück Center or the Leibniz Association, at the six technology parks focused on life sciences as well as at many of Berlin's 30 pharmaceutical companies, including Bayer HealthCare, Berlin Chemie (part of the Menarini Group), Sanofi Aventis, Pfizer and Takeda. Both these and other companies working in this sector are also involved in manufacturing products. The pharmaceutical industry in Berlin and Brandenburg benefits from its proximity to policy makers and to the area's robust biotech scene.

Along with research and production, you'll also find jobs in marketing, sales, human resources, communications, finance, IT, technology, logistics and quality management. Salaries are based, as always, on experience and current pay rates in effect at the respective companies. Those working in life sciences have an average starting salary of 57,000 euros per year. Pharmaceutical reps earn 40,000 euros and upwards, controllers start at around 45,000 euros while product managers earn 50,000 euros and up. So get started on your job search now! It'll pay off in the end.
