“Interview with┬áDirk Leutz, Managing Director, Pitzek GMP Consulting GmbH”

Careers in pharmaceuticals – 18 experts interviewed

The systemically important pharmaceutical industry is a mainstay of our healthcare system and our economy. It is a diverse industry, offering a wide range of jobs, training and study opportunities and, not least, great career prospects. However, like many other industries, it is currently suffering from a shortage of skilled workers and is concerned about attracting new talent.

The aim of this book in the “Career Paths” series, which aims to improve career and study guidance, is to give young people who are interested in working in the pharmaceutical industry an impression of the actual working day, real working conditions and career opportunities in the sector. A total of 18 experts, including Dirk Leutz, Managing Director of Pitzek GMP Consulting GmbH, have contributed to the book.

“I am personally very proud that I was able to interview our open and passionate managing director with an eye for detail and that we made it into the book. I hope that we can give a little help to all the newcomers, and perhaps to those who are looking for a change of job, in their choice of career. Of course, we are always happy to receive unsolicited applications,” says Silke Fuchs, Head of Marketing & Customer Service, Pitzek GMP Consulting GmbH (certified GMP consultancy for the pharmaceutical industry).

In a standardised interview, the experts were asked about their daily work, how they entered their profession (qualifications), what drives them (motivation), the biggest challenges in their daily work (demands & goals) and what they recommend to young people when choosing a career (tips). The aim is to avoid misunderstandings and disappointments when choosing a career, during training and especially later in professional life.
