Innovation managers are the most highly valued in the healthcare sector. Research and development managers in the life sciences sector can go from a starting annual salary of $35,800 (€30,000) to more than $71,600 (€60,000) six years later, according to the Salary Trends Report, prepared by Randstad Research.
The sector also offers good opportunities for intermediate profiles, such as business unit manager, key account manager, market access or medical advisor. The life sciences sector employs 214,500 people in Spain, which represents 1.1% of the country’s workforce. Life sciences is one of the most dynamic sectors with the most highly qualified profiles, according to the report. During the last year, an increase of 20,500 jobs was recorded. In total, nearly 85,000 contracts were signed in 2020, 80% of them temporary and the rest permanent.

For its part, the healthcare sector employs 1.8 million people, 9.3% of Spain’s workers. During 2020, healthcare experienced growth of 3.3%, which translates into 57,000 more jobs, the study notes. In the last year, the sector signed 1.16 million contracts, most of them temporary, accounting for 7.3% of all hiring. In terms of salaries, the sector is made up of watertight profiles with few increases in remuneration over the years.
Positions such as auxiliary nurse, orderly, physiotherapist or social worker can have a starting salary of around $21.450 (€18,000) that after six years in the profession barely exceeds $23.800 (€20,000). The report stresses not to overlook training and the improvement of employability in order to opt for other professional categories.

Overall, the logistics and transport sector, one of the most dynamic, offers very well paid positions, such as that of the supply chain manager.
On the other hand, salaries in Madrid, Barcelona and Bilbao are on average 9% higher than in Valencia, Seville and Malaga. “The best investment we can make is in training focused on professional skills and improving employability,” said Valentín Bote, director of Randstad Research. The executive added that we should bet on “training that is linked to our professional career, which allows us to respond to the needs of the labor market and access to higher categories.”
