In the week of 28 February to 6 March, 354 medtech companies posted 15,635 jobs worldwide, according to the GlobalData jobs analytics tool. This represented a startling increase of almost 36% on the 10,029 jobs posted the week before.

Bausch + Lomb, one of the industry’s most prolific hirers in recent weeks, returned to the hiring top spot last week, advertising for 1116 positions. It was followed by Thermo Fisher with 859 job listings, and Biotronik with 680.

The majority of listings were for junior-level jobs, with 6,216 positions falling into this category. Meanwhile, mid-level and entry-level jobs made up 4,614 listings and 4,396 listings respectively and 409 senior roles were posted.

Bausch Health names new CFO

Bausch + Lomb parent company Bauch Health named Sam Eldessouky as its new finance chief this week, as it looks to speed up the spinoff of Bausch + Lomb.

Eldessouky joined Bausch Health, previously known as Valeant Pharmaceuticals, in 2016 as senior vice president and corporate controller.

Bausch Health is currently seeking to spin off Bausch + Lomb into a separate publicly listed firm. While these plans were announced in August last year, activist investor Glenview Capital Management has called for the spin-off to be completed by the end of 2021.
