Thursday, 08 August 2013
ONE of the world’s leading providers of healthcare information services is acknowledging the wealth of scientific talent in Scotland by opening its first Scottish office.
KnowledgePoint360, recognised as a dynamic and innovative world leader in the industry, employs 700 staff worldwide with more than 350 associates based in the UK and is currently expanding its team of medical writers and project managers with a new office in the heart of Glasgow.
The move is part of a long-term commitment to become a leading player in the Scottish medical communications community.
Jon Bigelow, CEO said: “We know there is a strong talent pool in Scotland and want to take advantage of this by establishing a permanent Scottish base as part of our continued growth strategy.”
Rachel Forsyth, Director of Scientific Affairs, who will run the Scottish office, said: “At present, a lot of talented individuals who want to work in this field travel to England to get their foot on the ladder, and then end up having to stay there to advance their careers. So it makes sense to create fresh opportunities for all levels while expanding our company’s reach.
“Our people are our most important asset, so we will welcome new colleagues to our Glasgow office with a competitive salary package, family-friendly working and opportunities for career development.”
