I work in Pharma and do the odd bit of regulatory work - basically without experience it is quite difficult to break into - just a year or 2 will help massively.

You need to find someone who is willing to train you from scratch, or get an entry level job in pharma that is non-regulatory (but still medical/scientific) to get some experience, then try go sideways to a regulatory job.

That said, once you are good at it then you can do really well - Regulatory is a very complex area and can take a lifetime to even get half decent at!

Good luck!
This. I also work in Pharma and collaborate frequently with our regulatory people. Without experience, it's a tough field to break into, but try for a post in process development or validation or similar to begin with and try to move sideways one you're familiar with the company and products.

Having said that, it beats me why anyone would willingly want to deal with regulators on a daily basis .
