There are people with that arrangement in the local markets, so you could ask during interviews. We also have a few “global” groups who travel to client sites as needed (up to 30% in pre-covid times, about 0% currently). One of the groups is called Emerge and is recruiting heavily for LS skills right now.

In the same boat as you OP, not being in pharma hub is tough.
