Exciting times! We are currently working in partnership with one of the leading names within Life Sciences and Technical recruitment. Based in the heart of West Sussex our client is a market leader within various niche sectors including Rare Diseases & Gene Therapy, Clinical Trials, Medical Communications, Drug Production & Supply Chain, IT & Digital Labs.

Established for over 20 years, these guys are at the no 1 agency of choice for many clients working within these specialisms, working on both contingency and retained search basis within both permanent and interim recruitment. They are also backed financially by a well-known recruitment industry professional and Chairman of APSCo.

What makes them so different?

Well reputation is everything and they certainly have had many years of experience, in building strong relationships with both clients and candidates, by offering a genuine, honest and trustworthy approach alongside a first-class all-round service. The proof is in the pudding they say, with a huge percentage of business being repeat and exclusive. The company's vision is to become the agency of choice for the most innovative Life Science organisations, with the majority of business coming through referrals.

The culture is also key here, with a flat structure everyone from the MD, Managers, Consultants to the sales support team, working on a level par as one big team to create an inclusive culture, where everyone is a vital cog in the wheel. TEAM WORK = SUCCESS and they certainly have a great track record!

Why are they looking to expand so rapidly?

Well it's just down to volume of work! Due to their increasing client and candidate portfolio they now need to attract new, ambitious talent into the business to help them grow and continue to offer their un-rivalled service.

What are they looking for?

Well, they are quite open minded and will consider experienced 360 recruiters from various backgrounds. Ideally you will have a Life Sciences or Technical background, but they are open to recruiters from professional services backgrounds too. The main requirement is that you are a proven, successful 360 recruiter who is self-motivated, tenacious, ambitious and fun to work with!

A lovely team feel with genuinely nice people.
