People Partners.

Great recruitment requires a partner who understands and values your business like it is their own. 

We work with our clients to become their ‘people partners’: helping them source, select and secure the specialist talent they need to succeed. 

We serve the world’s leading life sciences companies, from global pharma to growing biotechs, working consistently with many for more than a decade. We also have the privilege of working in a sector where we can support the pioneering progress and genuinely life-changing work of our clients, by helping them, source top talent. Aligning ourselves with their aims, brand and culture, we provide market insight, sound advice and practical/flexible solutions

Market Knowledge.

Our clients work with us because our knowledge and contacts in the Life Sciences industry is unparalleled. Over 70% of our placements are made through candidate referrals and our ability to locate and engage market-leading talent is second to none. 

Our specialist permanent recruitment teams can advise you on current market conditions, the availability of candidates and help you benchmark your role and remuneration packages to ensure they are competitive and in line with the market.

Market Knowledge

Our Process.

When we receive a requirement from a client our first step is to arrange an in-depth meeting (either virtually or face-to-face) to discuss the requirement in as much detail as possible. We want to understand your business and clearly establish the type of individuals that you need to succeed.

Our Permanent Recruitment Teams are market specialists and understand that recruitment processes can vary from business to business. Therefore, we will work with you to establish the deliverables, milestones and timescales in advance and ensure they are always adhered to.

Candidate Attraction.

We utilise a variety of resources such as our industry-leading database, range of advertising solutions, active networking, and social media strategies to ensure our clients have access to the very best talent in the market.

Our Permanent Recruitment Teams are aligned to specialist disciplines, and they are dedicated to building up their personal networks of candidates withing their specific market, becoming their “career partners” and focusing on building long term relationships with them.

Candidate Attraction


Highly specialist candidates

Competition for the top talent in the life sciences industry is fierce and many of the best candidates are not active in the market.  Headhunting and Networking training forms a key part of our Learning and Development Programme, ensuring our consultants are continuously growing their networks and building relationships with the specialist talent within their space. 

Not only does this mean we have access to hard-to-find and highly specialist candidates, but ensures our consultants are keeping up to date with the latest news and developments in the market.

Candidate Selection.

As market specialists, our consultants have a strong understanding of what a “good” candidate looks like, whilst also knowing the motivations and desires of the people within their potential candidate market. 

This insight, coupled with a thorough understanding of the technical and personality profile required by each client allows us to match the best talent with the right opportunity, every time. We support both our clients and candidates through the offer process, working hard to ensure the needs of both are fully aligned. 

Our Goal.

Our goal is to change the lives and trajectory of our candidates' careers by connecting them with incredible opportunities, whilst supporting the genuinely life changing work of our clients by helping them hire the very best talent for their business.

Our Ambition.
