Almac Group Actively recruiting in the North West

Almac Group is actively recruiting to fill another 20 new posts across their Information Systems, Clinical Services and Clinical Technologies teams based at the company’s facility in Northland Road Business Park, Derry/Londonderry.

Since the announcement in June 2021 to set up a facility in Derry/Londonderry, Almac has recruited 10 new employees covering a variety of roles including Project Group Managers and Clinical Supply Managers for Clinical Services’ Project Services department, Software Engineers for the Information Services team, and Software Developers with Clinical Technologies.

Alan Armstrong, CEO, Almac Group, said: “These 20 new posts, alongside the ten that we have already filled mean that we are well on our way towards meeting our goal of recruiting 100 employees at our new location in the North West by the end of 2024.

“Almac is experiencing significant growth and filling these roles will bolster our ability to continue to support our many clients across the globe.  We are proud to have our global Headquarters in Craigavon and we are very pleased that we now have an established base in Derry/Londonderry.”
