Visit the Randox Teoranta Open Morning to find out what you will do in 2017

This Christmas we are issuing a challenge to life scientists, engineers, software developers and software testers.

As we celebrate the achievements of our team at Randox Teoranta in Dungloe, Donegal during 2016, we are asking potential employees, “What will you do in 2017?”

Our team of scientists, engineers, software developers and software testers at Randox Teoranta work in state-of-the-art facilities on pioneering research, developing innovative and revolutionary technologies that save lives, through earlier and more accurate diagnosis.

In 2016:

  • Tara’s scientific team developed a revolutionary test for Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Darren engineered new technologies with the ability to detect disease and save lives.
  • Maryrose’s team designed drugs testing software to be used by police officers in criminal investigations.

And in 2017 our team will continue to work on cutting-edge research for key health issues including kidney disease, thyroid disease and gastro intestinal disorders.

What will you do in 2017?

If you want to truly make a difference to global healthcare in a team of the best and brightest scientists, engineers, software developers and testers then join us at the Randox Teoranta Open Morning on Friday 23rd December.

Our world-class research, development and manufacturing site in Dungloe offers unrivalled opportunities for graduates and those with industrial experience within:

  • Life Sciences

Ciaran Richardson, Head of R&D at Randox Teoranta, commented;

“Our investment in this facility provides highly-skilled job opportunities for life scientists, engineers and software developers, and with such fantastic career opportunities available there’s real room to establish a world-class career in the thriving biotechnology industry.  

“The transformative work we’re doing here in our next-generation science and engineering facility is truly ground-breaking so for those who want an unrivalled, challenging and rewarding career, they need look no further than Randox Teoranta.”

Dr. Peter FitzGerald honoured with Cathaoirleach’s Reception in County Donegal

Our Founder and Managing Director, Dr. Peter FitzGerald, was this week honoured at a special Cathaoirleach’s Reception in Dungloe, Co. Donegal.

The reception, which was held in the Dungloe Public Service Centre on Tuesday 7th June, was hosted by the Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Ciaran Brogan, to say thank you to Dr. FitzGerald for Randox’s job creation and investment in Randox Teoranta, Randox’s Donegal site.

Dr. FitzGerald established Randox Teoranta in Dungloe in 2008, as part of Randox’s global expansion plans. The facility currently employs around 100 people, with plans to increase this to 540 by 2020.  Randox Teoranta is a highly innovative life-sciences, engineering, research and development and manufacturing centre playing a key role in realising Randox’s mission of improving clinical decision making worldwide.

Cllr Brogan said it was a great privilege for him to be in a position to honour Dr. FitzGerald with a special reception.

“Dr. FitzGerald’s accomplishments are immense, his contribution to the medical diagnostics sector, his commitment to continued research and development and his business acumen are testament to the work of a remarkable individual,” he said. “We are most grateful for his commitment to Dungloe and to County Donegal and to establishing a world class facility in our county, creating professional and highly skilled jobs in what is an exciting industry.

“Credit must also go to Údarás na Gaeltachta who have been strong supporters of this enterprise since it was established in Dungloe in 2008.  Their ongoing commitment has seen Randox realise their vision of a world class research and manufacturing centre in Dungloe.

“By creating highly-skilled jobs, Randox now presents great opportunities for Donegal graduates living in other parts of the county and abroad to return to work in their own county.”

 Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Founder and Managing Director of Randox, commented;

“I am incredibly grateful to Cllr. Ciaran Brogan, and to the team at Donegal County Council, for today’s event that recognises our commitment to County Donegal.  Randox Teoranta in Dungloe is an integral part of our plans for Randox, a company committed to improving and saving lives through innovative diagnostics.  Our scientists here are working on pioneering and life-saving research – world-class science that provides significant job opportunities for life scientists, engineers, software developers, and those in a range of associated manufacturing disciplines. We are excited by the potential of our Dungloe site in North West Donegal to transform the high value knowledge economy of the region.”

Also speaking at the event was Mr Seamus Neely, CEO, Donegal County Council CEO, Dr. Ciaran Richardson, Head of Randox Teoranta R&D, and Cllr. Marie Therese Gallagher, Donegal County Council.


Randox promotes Donegal to Diaspora in the US

Donegal will be promoted as a world-class place to live and do business, at a leading Irish-American event in Boston this week.

The annual conference of Irish Networks USA, which connects Irish associations in cities across the US in order to bolster business, cultural, and community links between the United States and Ireland, is taking place between 5th and 8th November.

Irish and Irish-American professionals living across the US will attend the event, to engage with the Irish diaspora and with key envoys from Irish businesses. Supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Ireland, those attending will have the opportunity to hear from speakers including the Irish Ambassador to the United States, Anne Anderson, and Mark Redmond, Chief Executive of the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland.

Additional backing for the event comes from Tourism Ireland and leading Donegal-based company, Randox Laboratories, which boasts facilities in Dungloe, as well as Co. Antrim and the Greater Washington DC area. Through reaching out to the Irish diaspora in the US, the company plans to promote the growing economy in Donegal through the creation of hundreds of new jobs over the next few years, as well as promote opportunities at the US facility near Washington DC.

The event kicks off on Thursday evening with a welcome gathering for those who have travelled to Boston from across the US, before the conference begins on Friday 6th November, where attendees will engage on a range of topics including global education, transatlantic business links, and the global Irish diaspora network. Delegates are then invited to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Irish Network Boston at the historic venue of Massachusetts Old State House.

Mark Campbell, Senior Manager at Randox Laboratories, is speaking at the conference:

“We are delighted to promote Donegal as a world-class destination for life-science professionals. Working with the diaspora network, we can get the message out there that Donegal has exciting career opportunities, great community networks and strong infrastructure, proving it to be a highly desirable place to work and live.

Additionally, as Randox expands its operations in the US, we are keen to promote our facility in the Greater Washington DC area where there will be increasing job opportunities over the next few months.”
