Zibrant is seeking to hire about ten full-time event managers, particularly pharmaceutical specialists.

Zibrant managing director Chris Parnham said the agency had secured a glut of business for the rest of this year and 2010 with three pharmaceutical clients, which created the need to hire more staff. He declined to name the pharmaceutical companies.

"The business growth is primarily with one pharmaceutical company, which is an existing client," said Parnham. "We're hoping the amount of business we will be doing with that client will be up 50% on what we were previously doing."

Parnham said Zibrant was looking to hire event managers at all levels of experience. It is also looking for new staff who speak foreign languages because a lot of the new business will be based overseas.
