Turkey market update (2013)
Skills in demand
Healthcare and life sciences recruitment in Turkey requires more and more technical profiles, such as medical managers and market access managers. Technical backgrounds and engineering experience are very important, even in the selection of product manager roles. This attracts excellence into the industry and encourages more competition between organisations.
Healthcare and life sciences is consistently a promising industry and profiles with technical backgrounds will always prove invaluable. Medical doctors will always dominate the industry and in the near future we expect the creation of new positions in brand management, business development and market access.
Growth in healthcare and life sciences in Turkey
Right after the economic crisis at the end of 2011, the healthcare and life sciences industry in Turkey had enhanced the relations with State and compared to the dark face at the beginning of 2012, has transformed itself again into one of the most prominent sectors.
2012 was the year in which both pharmaceutical and medical device industries saw the importance of technical profiles. Although 2012 started with a headcount freeze after the crisis affected the decline of prices, it ended with the elimination of under performers.
2013 started quite well both in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries – the growth has been remarkable. We are pleased to report that salaries are getting higher and to retain employees, companies are making lots of investments in their staff with training, compensation packages etc.
