JOB ALERT: Norbrook are hiring for a number of positions

Norbrook Laboratories are hiring for a number of positions including operatives and a QA manager.

Ranked in the Top 20 companies within the Global Animal Health Market, the company continues to invest heavily in its facilities and employees, building a strong team and sustainable business for the future.

Over £90m invested in enhancing our facilities in recent years - state of the art QC and R&D laboratories, manufacturing facility upgrades, automation – has contributed to ongoing success and growth. With a focus on safety, we took a proactive approach from the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, investing over £1.5m to keep employees safe, including being the first private company to have onsite PCR testing facilities in Ireland.

Our culture is based on our Values, and our One Team ethos is evident through the ongoing commitment and dedication of our employees to produce high-quality products for livestock and pets globally, but also in the phenomenal support for community initiatives locally and globally. Our investment in employees, from development to rewards, enables us to grow talent internally and attract talent externally.
