Drug maker to hire up to 600 in BloomingtonOctober 5, 2021

BLOOMINGTON — Drug maker Catalent plans to hire up to 600 more employees for its Bloomington operations by year's end amid rising demand for its products, including COVID-19 vaccines.
The Somerset, New Jersey-based company has scheduled job fairs at the Monroe County Convention Center for Oct. 12 and Oct. 13 as its seeks to hire between 500 and 600 new employees.
“We have opportunities across the board,” said Arturo Lopez, Catalent's senior director of human resources.
He said the company is increasing its production in part because of the continued high need for the COVID-19 vaccines it packages, The Herald-Times reported.
Catalent expects demand for those vaccines to continue for some time for both initial shots and boosters. Some medical experts expect COVID-19 to remain within the population for years, though without causing the kind of disruption it has over the past 18 months.
Lopez said the pandemic also has left many employers scrambling to find workers and has created some “interesting” market dynamics.
Catalent is hiring for positions ranging from director to supervisor to technicians, though the company is looking primarily for entry-level manufacturing and warehousing positions, he said.
Entry-level jobs will pay hourly wages of $18. Employees will get benefits from the start, including health insurance and a 401(k) plan with a match of up to 4%. Entry-level applicants must have a high school diploma.
