Job Summary

RBW Consulting is a life science orientated talent consultancy and we are pleased to be opening an office in Newcastle in the impressive Catalyst Innovation Centre. We’re looking for people to join our team and help shape the next phase of our evolution.


We’re different. Work with us.


RBW’s founders set up the business to do things differently; to create a culture built on professionalism, support and transparency over short-term commercial gain. Our open-door policy means just that: the leadership team will know your name, make time to get to know you, and always be available when you need them. 


Many of our Leadership team have progressed from Junior recruiters all the way throught to Director level and that mutual commitment between the business and our people - is a win for everyone: RBW, our clients and you. You’ll develop alongside a sociable, tight-knit team in an open, collaborative environment. You’ll be rewarded with more than a competitive pay package. But our culture is about more than that. It’s about being invested in each other. Every one of our people has a stake in the company in an employee share trust. So as the company grows in value, everyone benefits - no conditions.



RBW’s clients help people live longer, happier lives. We work with some of the world’s most innovative life sciences companies: the pharmas and biotechs developing life-saving therapeutics, the CROs and vendor services businesses helping them do business, and the med-tech companies giving patients better access to healthcare.
