  • 25 days holiday which increases to 28 days with service.

The Role:

This is a full-time permanent vacancy to recruit a range of positions on behalf of our pharma & biotech clients across the UK and Europe. You will be responsible for managing the full recruitment process in your dedicated sector and offering a first-class service to your candidates and clients. 

You will be developing your sector further by maximising opportunities with our existing client base as well as carrying out new client development activities to ensure a steady stream of new business is coming in.

This role can progress in to a Team Leader role where you can build and manage your own team, or provide the opportunity to get involved in other project work outside of recruitment to support the wider business if that appeals to you.

 What Kind of Person Are We Looking For?

We are looking for someone with previous recruitment experience and demonstrable success throughout that time - Ideally within the Pharma or Scientific sector but for us attitude and personality are key. 

A strong work ethic, proactive and focused approach with a good sense of humour will ensure you fit in to our team and culture.

You’ll have strong candidate and client development skills and you know what its takes to be successful in recruitment.

Perhaps you’re working in a role that is heavily KPI focused and you’re looking for a bit more autonomy? Or you’re back working in the office and you’d prefer a remote or hybrid set up? Or you’re simply interested in joining a recruitment business with a great culture, excellent reputation and rated ‘world class’ for customer service?
