What do Quality Assurance jobs pay?

Across the pharma and biotech space, it’s well know that there’s a lack of skilled professionals to fill quality assurance jobs. And as more pharmaceutical companies than ever are increasing investment in quality assurance activity, quality assurance jobs are being created every day – but when you’re working in the space, do you really know what quality assurance salary you should expect?

Increased demand for quality assurance professionals

For high caliber Quality Assurance professionals, there’s a huge amount of opportunity within permanent and contract markets – but when it comes to job quality, what’s best for you? Where do the best pharmaceutical Quality Assurance jobs sit? Where can you find the best pharmaceutical Quality Assurance salary in the UK? Do you need to think about opportunities in quality assurance vs quality control?

While the sector may be moving towards a rise in contract, it’s been recognised that there simply aren’t enough full-time permanent Quality Assurance professionals, specifically Qualified Persons (QPs), applying for permanent quality assurance jobs.

If you’re applying for Quality Assurance jobs, you’re operating in a candidate-driven market, meaning you have the power to design your career path.
