Medical devices businesses are increasingly being subjected to sanctions by a variety of regulators; there may be serious outcomes arising from regulatory inspections that have to be resolved.

To maintain a compliant operation many businesses are hiring teams to carry out regulatory remediation projects to identify and resolve issues and remove sanctions, leading to a high demand for consultants with the knowledge and capability to implement new and updated regulations.

NES Fircroft’s Life Science division works with a pool of professionals with experience and understanding of current regulations, directives, guidelines and laws affecting pharmaceutical and manufacturers in FDA, EU and other regulatory markets who we assign to work on client projects.

Case Study

Case Study

Supplying regulatory affairs specialists & broadening original scope through exceptional delivery

Our client is a medical device manufacturer, developing cardiovascular products for minimally invasive procedures. They have operations across Ireland, Denmark, Switzerland and the USA. 

The client sought to hire a position of:

  • Regulatory Affairs Specialist 
    (contract basis) 

The client's hiring challenges

Talent pool: The specialised nature of the client’s work means there is only a small eligible talent pool containing professionals with experience gained from a matching background.

Legality: Mitigating the varying legislation involved across their broad geographic remit had proven to be highly complex.

Timings: Before doing business with an agency partner the client must undertake highly comprehensive audits which adds a significant delay to the recruitment drive - by the time NES Fircroft was deemed a suitable supplier, time was of the essence.

Our compliance and financial strength were instrumental in securing the client
  • NES received certification to the international standard for Quality Management in 1994 and in 2018 we successfully achieved transition to the new ISO9001:2015.
  • We appointed a specialist Regulatory Affairs Recruitment Consultant in order to fulfil the scope who delivered a prospective candidate list within just 3 days from receiving the brief.
  • Our Commercial, Legal and Assignment Support professionals diligently undertook all required paperwork in the onboarding process.
