The professions offered by pharmaceutical subcontractors are rich and diversified. They generally require very specific technical and scientific skills. In addition, customer relations are important as service providers.

These jobs are open to those who have completed either a specific initial training course (school and/or university studies) such as Pharmacist with a Pharmaceutical Industry option, or targeted vocational training such as a CQP (Certificate of Professional Qualification) linked to the target job, which constitutes recognition of skills by the professional branch.
