Quotient Sciences Announces Significant Growth in Workforce at Alnwick, Northumberland

Quotient Sciences, the drug development and manufacturing accelerator, today announced that it has grown the workforce at its Alnwick, UK, facility by 20% over the past 2 years. The Alnwick site’s growth has been fuelled by its attractive location, variety of career opportunities, and strong people leadership.

Quotient Sciences Alnwick currently employs over 200 people across a range of scientific disciplines, including process chemistry, solid-state characterization, radiosynthesis, analytical science, bioanalysis, and formulation development. In October 2022, the company announced the completion of a major £6 million expansion of its drug substance manufacturing facility, which created an additional 80-100 new scientific and technical jobs at the facility.

Paul Ryan, SVP & Head of Candidate Development, said:

“We are a growing site, creating opportunities for career growth both within the Alnwick team and as part of the wider Quotient Sciences organisation. It is very inspiring to work on pharmaceutical projects that deliver on our manifesto, ‘Molecule to cure. Fast.™’, and hear first-hand from some of the patients who have benefited from the new medicines we have helped to deliver. In 2023, the pace of growth is set to continue with the expansion of our aseptic manufacturing capability at the Alnwick site, along with continued growth across all areas of the business. This will provide opportunities for technical and manufacturing roles in drug product manufacturing.”

For those interested in open positions, the Alnwick site is known for providing excellent career development opportunities for knowledgeable, ambitious, and hardworking candidates. This reputation was recognized in 2021, when the site was named “Most Inspirational North-East (UK) Science Employer” by STEM Learning as part of the STEM Ambassadors program.

The state-of-the-art facility is in Northumberland, which is easily accessible from the A1.
