View Jobs in Life Sciences

Quality Assurance is a fundamental part of any Life Science corporation in ensuring that the research, development, production, and maintenance of the product are in-line with all applicable regulations, and in addition, that they are optimised for safety, transparency, and consistency. 

The continued and significant investment into this space, coupled with advances in innovation which are driving clinical development pipelines forward, necessitate that employers secure increasingly specific levels of specialisation in their staff.

We understand that there is increasing strain on the quality talent pool and that competition is fierce. Many organisations are adopting a “total quality” approach to enable all aspects of their quality considerations to be managed as a single harmonised process, significantly impacting the supply chain for many organisations.

Case Study

Case Study

Hiring specialist quality personnel - remote location, UK

Our client provides innovative therapies and technologies to help treat life-threatening illnesses.

The client sought to hire:

  • 3 Quality Assurance Managers (permanent basis)

The client's hiring challenges

Fast-paced market: In response to the market the client’s rapid increase in the production of antibiotics and chemotherapy drugs made these hires business-critical.

The remote location: the local talent pool was exceptionally small making it highly probable that candidates would need to relocate, and there is a direct competitor in the area.

Timely production: The client had already wasted significant valuable time in trying to fill these roles directly, making the hires even more urgent in meeting production schedules.

Our strategy finds candidates who optimise QMS systems and effectively deliver products to market

We signed on an exclusive basis:

  • Appointed a Quality expert to ascertain a comprehensive understanding of the job roles as well as the client’s culture and working environment, to pitch the role and the prospect of relocation to potential applicants. This detailed analysis enabled our specialist to pinpoint where our client’s previous hiring strategy had failed
  • Mitigated Covid restrictions through video interviewing technology - the client was able to review interview footage at a time convenient to them
