Life Sciences

Our specialists will find exciting work for you in the future industry


Life sciences is a growing sector of the future with a multitude of opportunities for qualified specialists from the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, medical technology and biotechnology. Manpower has its own Competence Center, which brings the specialists together with the leading companies from the life sciences industry. Instead of applying individually for a position at a research company or manufacturer, you can rely on our consultants. They will find you a position that suits you exactly, for trained career starters and for experienced medical technicians, chemists and biotechnologists alike.

Our specialists are in close contact with your potential employer and use their background knowledge to prepare you excellently for your job interview. Of course, this is preceded by the optimization of your dossier with all relevant keywords so that you will attract attention with your suitable profile in the first phase of your application. We often find out about a need for personnel before positions are officially advertised, so that we can offer you particularly attractive jobs at first hand.

Life sciences are a very global market that we meet with appropriate services. We support applicants from abroad in adapting their application documents to the requirements of the Swiss job market. If a contract is concluded, we initiate the official processes from the Swiss work permit to the Swiss residence permit for our employees. Even during your engagement and afterwards, we look after you seamlessly. With further training and payments into your pension fund, you can enjoy all the advantages of a permanent position with full flexibility with manpower.
