Validation engineers oversee the myriad of machines, medicines, and processes that inhabit the life sciences industry. From writing validation reports and running tests to calibrating equipment and conducting audits, validation engineers have a great deal of responsibility on their plate, and it’s for good reason. The life sciences operate to an incredibly high standard, a standard of excellence that places the health and wellbeing of the patients at the forefront of every decision.
In order to make sure that the life sciences continue to develop products to the highest possible standard, the skillset of a validation specialist is required. Validation jobs usually take many different forms, from biomedical validation engineers to Validation quantitative specialists in the pharmaceutical industry, you can find them across the entire spectrum of the life sciences.
Generally, validation specialists are analytical thinkers, problem-solvers, team players, and highly trained and knowledgeable individuals with a passion for the life sciences. Plus, since the role is so versatile, there is a huge amount of room for specialisation, making it a very enticing career for anyone who’s technically minded and interested in professional mobility.
The need to fill validation engineer jobs is only increasing, just as it has done over the last few years. As the life sciences start to benefit even more from increased public awareness and funding, this trend looks set to continue. In a talent-short market, this is good for the job-seeker, but not necessarily good for those who need to do the hiring.
Candidates now have more choice and confidence than ever before, and this makes the recruitment space seriously competitive. It’s no secret that the hiring process can be extremely lengthy and expensive, and for many life sciences businesses, these are resources that they cannot spare.

Life Sciences in London
