Drug maker Catalent plans to hire between 500 and 600 more employees for its Bloomington operations through the end of the year as it is seeing rising demand for its products, including COVID-19 vaccines.

The Somerset, New Jersey-based company will have job fairs at the Monroe County Convention Center Oct. 12 and 13.

“We have opportunities across the board,” said Arturo Lopez, senior director of human resources.

Lopez told The Herald-Times Friday that 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.

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.
