Pfizer plant Ringaskiddy, Co. Cork

Pfizer is to create approximately 130 jobs across three manufacturing sites in Ireland; Grange Castle in Dublin and Little Island and Ringaskiddy in Cork.

The company already employs approximately 3,200 people at six sites across the country.

Pfizer said that its Grange Castle plant, based in West Dublin, is looking to recruit about 90 people across several areas.

Positions include process scientists; process/equipment engineers; automation engineers; operations specialists; process technicians; quality analysts and project managers.

In Cork, the company’s Ringaskiddy and Little Island sites are also seeking to fill over 40 positions. The roles include process operators, mechanical and electrical/instrumentation craft, process engineers, process chemists, and quality control analysts.

Pfizer’s Ringaskiddy site recently secured $30 million investment to manufacture some of Pfizer’s newest cancer medicines and other future pipeline medicines.

Earlier this year Pfizer reversed a decision to close its manufacturing facility at Little Island in Cork in a move that saved 160 jobs.

“Pharmaceutical manufacturing in Ireland continues to perform well contributing strongly to exports and economic growth, and providing good careers and jobs”, commented Pfizer’s vice president Dr Paul Duffy.

He said that Pfizer is one of Ireland’s leading employers and economic contributors. Its sites in Ireland manufacture some of Pfizer’s leading and newest medicines for export globally, he added.
