ID Search & Selection is a specialist recruitment agency and we have been working in medical communications recruitment for over 15 years. We have an opportunity for an experienced Recruitment Consultant to join our team in and be based in our West Byfleet office, Surrey.

We recruit for medical communications professionals at all levels of seniority on behalf of healthcare advertising, medical education, PR and market research agencies and pharmaceutical companies – both on permanent and contract assignments.

We are looking for ambitious candidates who will ideally have previous experience within a medical communications recruitment agency and will have a track record of strong and regular billing.

Office hours are 9.30 am to 5.30 pm although we do make ourselves available to speak to candidates outside of office hours.
