500 to be hired by Quintiles for new BPO hub in China

In Partnering & Investment by Simon Crompton-Reid1 Comment

Just weeks after Quintiles announced plans to set up a new CRO based in Beijing came out another plans to open its fourth hub in China with plans to hire 500 workers for a new business process outsourcing operation that will cater to a broad range of biopharma clients with a multilingual staff based in Dalian.

NC-based Quintiles plans to offer regional as well as global clients help with data management, biostatistics, medical writing, pharmacovigilance, post-marketing safety surveillance and back-office support, in addition to supporting clinical operations at study sites scattered through the region.

Quintiles anticipates growing the center to 500 staff in the next several years once all services are fully established. It will be the company’s fourth hub office in Greater China (in addition to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong).

China has been one of the world’s top emerging markets for Big Pharma. And drug developers of every stripe have been eyeing the country’s growing outsourcing offerings as CROs flock to the region.

Quintiles is proud to be the Exclusive "Diamond Sponsor" at the 5th annual BioPharma Asia Convention 2012. If you would like to meet with their consultants and BD team to explore partnership opportunities, contact Rebecca Koh at rebecca.koh@terrapinn.com now to arrange a meeting today!

    This is a need for china to concentrate on BPO sector, because China has a strength of manpower, and literacy but still china is not a hub for BPOs
