A little bit about us...

From the outset we have fostered a culture of delivering excellence in service, using the latest recruitment methodologies available, whilst maintaining transparency and accountability every step of the way. Our internal structure is set up to mirror the full drug development life-cycle, with specialist teams responsible for each vertical area, from the pre-clinical discovery phase through to the commercialisation of the drug. The teams consist of both ex industry professionals and recruitment professionals, effectively blending deep sector expertise with best practice in staffing and recruitment. We encourage an open and entrepreneurial culture where the sharing of knowledge is part of our every-day work.
