Contract Recruitment

With over 15 years of experience supporting our customers with their contract requirements, we can help you find the ideal new hire for your next interim or freelance opportunity. 

Our expertise spans the full drug life-cycle, where we regularly place talented individuals into contract roles across drug development, clinical, medical, regulatory affairs, market research, market access, healthcare communications and sales & marketing. 

The benefits of contract recruitment

Contract or temporary hiring can be a quicker process than that of permanent recruitment and serves to ‘fill a gap’ within organisations, be it to temporarily replace a permanent member of staff or address an increased business need such as a new project or end of year rush. 

In a candidate-short market, it can prove easier and more efficient to hire a contractor than a perm member of staff. Many businesses take on a new employee on a contract basis initially, with the prospect of offering them a permanent role later down the line; this could be while they wait to see if they secure funding, a new project or just want to test out how an employee fits into their team.

Why use Carrot for your contract recruitment?

We ensure timely, clear and transparent communication is a priority throughout. We ensure the candidate journey is a positive process and offer peace of mind to both sides.

We give candidates informed feedback and support their preparation for interviews. We manage the offer process, support them through resignation/end of the current contract, and maintain their commitment through to their start date.

We have contractors either as limited company contractors or set them up with our partner umbrella company that operates as an extension of the Carrot accounts team. We efficiently manage compliance, timesheet submission, approval, invoicing and payments. 

We offer a thorough process and ensure all relevant documentation is in place and all required checks carried out before your contract hire starts.

How we engage with contractors

  • We have a dedicated in-house marketing team who constantly deliver and evolve creative and engaging marketing content, to help expand our perm, freelance and interim candidate networks.
  • We have a deep reach into candidate networks, with an extensive database of active and engaged candidates, plus we invest in external sources for volume requirements.
  • We have a very positive reputation in the market. Candidates really want to work with us (you can read our testimonials here) and generally have a very good experience. This results in a high volume of referrals and word of mouth approaches.
