Almac to create 100 North West jobs over three years

  • Global pharmaceutical manufacturers, the Almac Group, has announced the creation of a new facility in Derry/Londonderry with plans to offer 100 new, highly skilled jobs over the next three years.

    Almac currently has over 5,600 employees located in 18 locations across the world - 3,600 of whom are based at its global headquarter campus in Craigavon. 

    The initial recruitment drive for the new North West roles is underway and offers a mixture of project management and software engineering positions at all levels. Experience of the pharmaceutical industry is not an essential requirement for these roles as full on-the-job training is provided.

    Alan Armstrong, CEO at Almac Group said: “We are experiencing significant growth and have a need to support our many clients across the globe. With substantial advancement in technology, we are fortunate to be able to locate our employees anywhere we choose offering greater flexibility and access to our various range of services."

    "Given the skills pipeline coming from Ulster University at Magee and Coleraine, combined with the excellent choice of workspace available in the Derry/Londonderry area, we have decided to explore this region as our next Almac location," he continued.

    Londonderry Chamber President, Dawn McLaughlin added: "Almac’s decision to establish a new base in the North West also reflects our region’s growing reputation in sectors such as diagnostics, health and life sciences, tech, AI, and robotics, and complements the recent Derry and Strabane City Deal announcement. Inward investment and job creation like this will drive economic growth in the North West and will be vital as we rebuild post-lockdown.”
