QA/QC Back Cover – Disclaimer and Company Information 1) Survey Methodology The Clinical Professionals Salary Survey was administered online with employed pharmaceutical professionals responding in the month of August 2012. Respondents were invited to participate in the survey through links distributed on online and social media, as well as registered professionals on our database. A cookie methodology was used to ensure that there was no duplication of responses between or within the various sample groups, and duplicate responses from the various sources were removed when identical contact details were seen. www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk +44 (0)118 9594 990
  • 4. 2) Overall Observations and Analysis The last few years have been fairly consistent for the pharmaceutical industry despite the economic downturn, but this year we started to see some fragments of its effect within the UK market. Although not directly affected by its influence, the economic downturn has caused salary raises to slow down for those that remained at their jobs within the same company. However, salaries have still risen on the whole for the various positions within the pharmaceutical industry, which means there is a great deal of flexibility still available to those that wish to continue their career ladder at their next company. This table shows loose comparisons between the salaries of differing sectors within the industry and their senior positions. For actual in depth looks at the different sectors, see their corresponding areas in this document. Experience in Industry Sector Clinical Research Senior Regulatory Affairs Senior Drug Safety Senior Med Info/ MSL Senior HEOR Senior Biostats Senior QAQC Senior 0 - 1 Years 1 - 2 Years 2 - 3 Years 3 - 5 Years 0 - 19.9k 20 - 29.9k 20 - 29.9k 30 - 40k+ 40 - 59.9k 30 - 40k+ 30 - 39.9k 30 - 40k+ 40 - 59.9k 40 - 60k+ 40 - 59.9k 40 - 59.9k 20 - 29.9k 20 - 29.9k 20 - 29.9k 20 - 29.9k 40 - 59.9k 20 - 29.9k 30 - 39.9k 20 - 29.9k 20 - 29.9k 40 - 59.9k 40 - 59.9k 30 - 39.9k 20 - 29.9k 70.0% 40 - 60k+ 40 - 59.9k 20 - 30k+ 30 - 39.9k 5 - 10 Years 10+ Years 40 - 59.9k 60 - 70k+ 40 - 59.9k 60 - 70k+ 40 - 59.9k 60 - 70k+ 60 - 70k+ 40 - 60k+ 80k+ 60 - 70k+ 60 - 69.9k 70 - 80k+ 30 - 39.9k 40 - 60k+ 80k+ Overall - Pharma Benefits 60.0% 50.0% 40.0% 30.0% 20.0% 10.0% 0.0% Bonus Car Allowance Private medical cover (Healthcare) Group personal pension scheme Income Life assurance Denplan (or Training and Gym Membership protection equivilent) development membership to professional associations www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk +44 (0)118 9594 990
  • 5. As expected, the increase in experience usually results in an increase in seniority and salary banding, as well as generally being happier with their wage level and benefits. From the next graph you can see that at about the £50,000 pa level, you have a switch in those that are happy with their salary and those that are not. When we investigated this further with their level of benefits (including bonuses), we found that it was the best point to aim for when in the lower bands in order to have a gratifying career ladder. Those we later talked to in depth whilst recruiting for them, found that being able to identify the positions with this salary banding (within their sector) and therefore the career path required to get there, meant they were much more successful in reaching this step in their profession than if they had aimed directly for the higher salary. 90% The overall locations of our responses were: % Responses Happy With their Salary 80% 70% 60% 50% Yes 40% No 30% 20% 10% 0% 0 - 20k 20 - 30k 30 - 40k 40 - 60k 60 - 70k 70 - 80k 80k+ For each sector we have detailed you will be able to see the levels and job titles most associated with this career sweet spot (the ‘salary banding switch point’ - SBSP), and therefore an ideal target if in lower bandings, or a recognised point if above that allows you to show your sought after skills and experience that continue to be highly valued by the industry. Since the different sectors in pharma can vary in this way, we are happy to break any areas down further upon request, especially if you would like to know an accurate SBSP for your particular expertise. www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk 27.2% London 7.2% East 36.0% South East 8.4% South West 2.4% East Midlands 2.0% West Midlands 5.2% North West 3.6% North East 4.8% Scotland 2.1% Ireland 1.2% Wales The Overall Experience levels of our responses were: 0-1 years 1-2 years 2-3 years 3-5 years 5-10 years 10+ years +44 (0)118 9594 990 6.6% 7.4% 9.4% 18.0% 24.6% 34.0%
  • 6. 3a) Clinical Research The table below shows average salaries for clinical research job titles across all levels of experience. This shows how salaries generally increase as the role gains in seniority. Average Salary by Job Title Clinical Trial Administrator (CTA) Senior CTA Clinical Research Associate (CRA) Senior CRA Clinical Project Manager (CPM) Senior CPM Clinical Trial Manager Clinical Study Manager Clinical Director £24.5k £34.3k £33.1k £47.5k £50.7k £54.2k £56.3k £48.6k £74k The results of the average salary by experience show that as experience increases, salary levels also rise to reflect the greater knowledge gain about the industry by the individual. Although the initial increase is fairly steady, there is a big difference once employees have over five years experience. Average Salary by Experience in Industry 0 – 1 Years 1 -2 Years 2 -3 Years 3 – 5 Years 5 – 10 Years 10+ Years £28k £29.3k £33.6k £35.3k £46.2k £62.2k The results also showed that the benefits provided in the clinical research sector were fairly standard for the pharmaceutical industry, with respondents most likely to receive group personal pension scheme and/or private medical cover. 60% Benefits at a Glance 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% Bonus Car Allowance Private medical cover (Healthcare) Group personal pension scheme Income protection www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk Life assurance Denplan (or equivilent) Training and Gym Membership development membership to professional associations +44 (0)118 9594 990

Over the years, it will be interesting to note and compare how these levels change with inflation and global economic situations, and what sort of differences can be observed between the UK and Eurozone markets. Of the people surveyed, 54.0% thought that their salary reflected their level of experience. Within the clinical research sector, most respondents were within the £40 – 60k salary range, with respondents who earned over £40k generally being more satisfied with their salary than those earning less than £40k. Proportion of Responses within Salary Bandings (%) 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 0 - 20k 20 - 30k 30 - 40k 40 - 60k 60 - 70k 26.5% London 5.1% East 41.0% South East 10.3% South West 2.6% East Midlands 1.8% West Midlands 3.6% North West 3.2% North East 4.3% Scotland 1.5% Ireland Experience levels 70 - 80k 80k+ The clinical research sector has fairly average salary and benefits when compared to other sectors that were surveyed in the salary survey. Future salary surveys can be used to compare the changes in salaries across different job titles and experience over time, and analyse how any changes in salaries or benefits relate to the economic climate. www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk The locations of our responses were: 0-1 years 1-2 years 2-3 years 3-5 years 5-10 years 10+ years +44 (0)118 9594 990 4.4% 6.2% 6.2% 15.9% 31.0% 36.3%
  • 8. 3b) Regulatory Affairs Although the average salary (by job title) within regulatory affairs compares well to other sectors within the industry, it is important to note that greater levels of experience garnered much higher salaries past the 10+ year mark. Average Salary by Job Title Regulatory Affairs Officer Regulatory Affairs Associate Regulatory Affairs Executive Regulatory Affairs Manager Head of Regulatory Operations Associate Director Senior Registration Officer 29k 28.3k 40k 45k 63.3k 86.2k 35k When looking at the average salaries by industry experience, you see there is slight exponential growth across all levels, not just from senior leadership or director level roles. This does expectedly show that experience in the industry, and even in the same roles does garner higher salaries. It would also be interesting to compare this to next year’s results to see how inflation increases have an effect on experience levels, and see if they keep up with the overall average increases of the country. Average Salary by Experience in Industry 0 – 1 years 1 – 2 Years 2 – 3 Years 3 – 5 Years 5 – 10 Years 10+ Years 25k 27k 32k 39k 42k 63k It’s clear to see when you compare salary against industry experience, that as an employee spends longer in a position, inevitable promotions can come their way which allow them to climb the salary ladder further. 25 Benefits - at a glance (%) 20 15 10 5 0 Bonus Car Allowance Private medicalGroup personal cover pension (Healthcare) scheme Income protection www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk Life assurance Denplan (or equivilent) Training and development Gym Membership to membership professional associations +44 (0)118 9594 990

Over the years, it will be interesting to note and compare how these levels change with inflation and global economic situations, and what sort of differences can be observed between the UK and Eurozone markets. Of those we surveyed in Regulatory Affairs, about 65% responded they were not happy with their current salary level, with a majority of that particular answer within the low to mid range salary banding. The locations of our responses were: Proportion of Responses within Salary Ranges (%) 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 0 - 19.9k 20 - 29.9k 30 - 39.9k 40 - 59.9k 60 - 69.9k 70 - 79.9k 80k+ Experience levels Our company uses all of this knowledge and analysis to help us further candidates’ careers both up the career ladder, and expand their prospects in their sector.

  • 10. 3c) Drug Safety The Drug Safety sector has a steady increase in the job title and salary range, showing a common correlation in this sector. Entry level roles start at around £30k, and the most senior roles from our results were £85k+. Average Salary by Job Title Drug Safety Associate Senior Drug Safety Associate Drug Safety Manager Pharmacovigilance Director Qualified Person Pharmacovigilance (QPPV) 29.3k 41k 42k 70k 84k The increase from entry level to 3 years is very slight on average, the majority of our respondents were in the senior stages of their drug safety career. As we can tell from the results there is a vast increase when you have worked in the drug safety sector for more than 3 years, with the experience levels 3-5 showing salaries rising by around £15k. Nearly 20% of the candidates that replied to our survey had worked in drug safety for 10+ years, with an average salary of £70k. Average Salary by Experience in Industry 0 – 1 years 1 – 2 Years 2 – 3 Years 3 – 5 Years 5 – 10 Years 10+ Years 23.3k 25k 26.5k 41k 43.6k 69k It’s clear to see when you compare salary against industry experience, that as an employee spends longer in a position, inevitable promotions can come their way which allow them to climb the salary ladder further. 50% 45% 40% 35% 30% 25% 20% 15% 10% 5% 0% Benefits - At a Glance Bonus Car Private Allowance medical cover (Healthcare) Group personal pension scheme Income Life assurance Denplan (or Training and Gym Membership protection equivilent) development membership to professional associations www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk +44 (0)118 9594 990

The senior drug safety role and the management roles are similar, with only a slight difference in the maximum salary. The Director role starts at 5 years experience with a salary of £60k with the most senior QPPV role being the highest salary with £80k+, although you will require 10 years drug safety industry experience. Of those we surveyed in drug safety, about 67% responded they were not happy with their current salary level, with a majority of that particular answer within the low to mid range salary banding. The locations of our responses were: Proportion of Responses within Salary Ranges (%) 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 £0-19K £20K - £29K £30K - £39K 30% 8.5% 41% 11% 2% 7.5% London East South East South West East Midlands Scotland £40K - £59K Experience levels £60k - 69k £70k - £79k £80k + From these results we can see the most common salary in the drug safety sector is between £20k and £39k, which cover the entry level and associate roles. Over 60% of all our responses were on a salary in this range. There are fewer senior salaries, but a higher number of £80k salaries suggest this is the main step to director level, possibly from a £69k management level. www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk 0-1 years 1-2 years 2-3 years 3-5 years 5-10 years 10+ years +44 (0)118 9594 990 15% 10% 7% 19% 30% 19%
  • 12. 3d) Medical Information and MSL’s The average salary by job title shows, as expected, that salaries generally increase as the role gains in seniority, with managers earning a lot more than MSLs or Medical Information Associates. Average Salary by Job Title Medical Science Liaison (MSL) MSL Manager Medical Affairs Manager Medical Information Associate Medical Information Scientist £50k £60k £55k £32k £45k The results from the ‘average salary by level of experience’ demonstrate that there is a steady growth in salary as industry experience increases. In comparison to other pharmaceutical sectors reviewed in the survey, the results indicate that medical information and MSL roles have higher average salaries for equivalent levels of industry experience than the majority of other sectors in the pharmaceutical industry. Average Salary by Experience in Industry 0 – 1 years 1 – 2 Years 2 – 3 Years 3 – 5 Years 5 – 10 Years 10+ Years £26.7k £29k £30k £43.3k £55k £67k The survey results showed that the benefits provided in the medical information and MSL sector were a lot higher than the average for the pharmaceutical industry, with some benefits being received by approximately 90% of respondents. Within the medical information and MSL sector, respondents were most likely to receive private medical cover and/or a bonus. 100% 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% Benefits - At a Glance Bonus Car Allowance Private medical cover (Healthcare) Group personal pension scheme Income protection www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk Life assurance Denplan (or Training and Gym Membership equivilent) development membership to professional associations +44 (0)118 9594 990

Experience in Industry 0-1 Years Job Title Medical Science Liaison (MSL) MSL Manager Medical Affairs Manager Medical Information Associate 1-2 Years 40 - 60k 2-3 Years 40 - 60k 20 - 30k 3-5 Years 40 - 60k+ 40 - 60k 40 - 60k 30 - 40k+ 5 - 10 Years 60 - 70k 40 - 60k 10+ Years 60 - 70k+ 60 - 70k+ The experience in industry table shows that although average salary increases as experience increases, this is mainly due to respondents holding a more senior role as they gain more experience within the industry. The table shows that the number of years experience in industry does not appear to have a large direct affect on the salary range for individual job roles within Medical Information and MSL. There is quite a wide range of salaries for 2 – 3 years, depending on the job role, as the more senior roles earn a considerably higher salary for the same number of year’s experience. Benefits also increased as experience in industry increased (not shown here), with respondents with greater levels of experience being more likely to receive a wider range of benefits. Of the people surveyed within the Medical Information and MSL sector, 55.0% thought that their salary reflected their level of experience. Most respondents were within the £40 – 60k salary range, with not many respondents earning over £60k. Proportion of Responses within Salary Ranges (%) 0 2 4 6 8 10 0 - 20k 20 - 30k 30 - 40k The locations of our responses were: 27.8% 5.7% 33.4% 10.9% 5.3% 11.4% 5.2% London East South East South West East Midlands North East Scotland 40 - 60k Experience levels 60 - 70k Overall, in comparison to other sectors, Medical Information and MSLs appear to earn higher salaries whilst gaining the initial three years of experience in the industry. After gaining the initial three years of experience, Medical Information and MSL roles appear to have more similar salary ranges to the other pharmaceutical sectors that were surveyed. Future salary surveys can be used to compare the changes in salaries and benefits over time, and relate to any changes in inflation and global economic situations, and investigate what differences can be observed between the UK and Eurozone markets. www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk 0-1 years 1-2 years 2-3 years 3-5 years 5-10 years 10+ years +44 (0)118 9594 990 16.0% 10.9% 11.1% 33.8% 16.7% 11.6%
  • 14. 3e) Health Economics/Market Access Health Economics and Market Access has been a dramatically increasing sector for Clinical Professionals. As we can see from the results, the salaries are higher than the average pharmaceutical sectors. Entry level roles start at around £38k, and the most senior roles from our results were £100k+ Average Salary by Job Title Health Economics Consultant Director HTA Policy Manager Project Manager Market Access Manager Senior Market Access and Pricing Manager 41.7k 105k 65k 70k 77k 82k The average salary for entry level roles into HE/MA is £37.5k which does not change until 2 years of experience. The salary then increases significantly to £50k, for experience levels between 2 – 5 years. The most senior roles including experience of 10+ years then rises to nearly £100k. Average Salary by Experience in Industry 0 – 1 years 1 – 2 Years 2 – 3 Years 3 – 5 Years 5 – 10 Years 10+ Years 37.5k 37.5k 50k 52k 80k 92k There are 3 main salary ranges, depending on experience, with only the senior roles having much of a difference. 80% Benefits - At a glance 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% Bonus Car Allowance Private medical Group personal cover pension scheme (Healthcare) www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk Income protection Life assurance Denplan (or equivilent) Training and Membership to development professional associations +44 (0)118 9594 990

There is an increase in the salary with an increase in experience, including a promotion in job title. The Health Economics consultant role seems to have the best range, with salaries starting at £40k, ranging to £60k with over 5 years experience. The Health Economic Leads / Directors are at the top of the scale, with the minimum 5 years experience exceeding £100k. Of those we surveyed in health economics and market access, about 46.2% responded they were not happy with their current salary level, with a majority of that particular answer within the mid range salary banding with 2-3 years experience. The locations of our responses were: Proportion of Responses within Salary Ranges (%) 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 £0-19K £20K - £29K £30K - £39K £40K - £59K £60k - 69k £70k - £79k London East Ireland North East North West Scotland South East Wales West Midlands Experience levels £80k + From these results we can see permanent salaries were all above £40,000, with a high number being over £70k and even £80k. Over 90% of all our responses within the Health Economics / Market Access industry were on a higher salary than £40k with 50% being made up of the senior roles and a salary in excess of £70k. Contract numbers averaged around £600 per day. www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk 48% 6% 2% 2% 11% 3% 20% 4% 4% 0-1 years 1-2 years 2-3 years 3-5 years 5-10 years 10+ years +44 (0)118 9594 990 14% 3% 16% 2% 29% 36%
  • 16. 3f) Biostatistics A fast expanding sector within our business, biometrics has shown large increases across salary bands directly correlating with experience. The averages may be much higher in general against most other sectors, but the positions are much more competitive, and we’ve often seen smaller benefit packages than offered to other areas.

It also seems though, that this sector benefits from a much steeper curve of experience against salary compared to most other sectors, which therefore shows larger incremental increases in salaries when furthering their careers. www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk +44 (0)118 9594 990
  • 17. 3g) Quality Assurance / Compliance Compared to other pharmaceutical sectors, quality assurance has a more linear salary increase in retrospect of industry experience. As one of the more stable sectors though, it does allow for some better benefits overall in line with the diverse specialists this sector covers.

Although we saw this across all sectors we surveyed, the largest difference was for QA/QC, showing an industry tendency for lower average salaries when remaining within their position. www.clinicalprofessionals.co.uk +44 (0)118 9594 990
