Global Partners in Life Sciences Recruitment

Perhaps in life sciences more than any other industry, an eye to international talent is absolutely critical to the recruitment process. Whether you’re looking to recruit for biotechnical sales, supply chain management, regulatory entities, or lead researchers on clinical trials, it’s crucial to procure the best talent that these global industries have to offer. Goldbeck Recruiting values our global partners in searches like these; our team boasts networks cultivated through professional organizations, connections with past candidates, and personal connections that stretch around the world. These connections allow Goldbeck to be highly selective in our recruitment processes, making your job as our client very easy: just choose your favourite candidate and get back to business as usual, knowing you’ve got a guaranteed fit.

Even with these global networks, the talent pool in life sciences can be smaller than we’d like, but a track-record focused industry means those high performers get hired quickly. This trend has a serious impact on the course of recruitment for many companies, because as well qualified, high performing candidates get hired and gain momentum, it can become harder—and more expensive—to bring them on board. Goldbeck’s team can advise you on industry trends and the hiring landscape before we begin the recruitment process to ensure that your position is as likely to be filled as can be.

Recruit Innovation in Life Sciences

In the life sciences, innovation is the name of the game. From the inception of a medical device to the trialling of a clinical drug to the strict regulatory processes approving either, teams and companies are defined by their achievements in the creativity of the sciences. For this reason, when acting as biotech recruiters, life sciences sales and marketing recruiters, or life sciences engineering recruiters, the Goldbeck team places emphasis on measurable, demonstrable results. Innovation may take many different forms, however. As a biomolecular engineer may find innovative ways to fortify a crop against drought, a clinical trial designer may find innovation in the group testing of samples to save antibodies. Similarly, as a life sciences sales representative might find a new and creative way to demonstrate the value of their product to an as yet untapped consumer base, a researcher may find a completely unexpected way to appeal to a granting agency.

Candidates, however, should not only have a track record of results—be it sales, approved pharmaceuticals, or the stringent and rigorous regulation of those pharmaceuticals—though these are important. Candidates should also boast a track record of this kind of innovation and of a consistent curiosity that guides them through their work and the mission of their organization. In life sciences, every day spent not pushing boundaries is an opportunity lost. Goldbeck has spent years forming connections with some of the most revered companies and individuals in the life sciences sphere. Together, we can find the dare devil candidate you’re looking for.

In Life Sciences, Personality Matters

But risk is not the only key to success, of course! Your life sciences candidate must also fit in well with the scope and intention of your team. Especially on research teams, getting the wrong team together can quickly devolve into more a battle of ego and less a cooperation of intelligence (such is the nature of principal investigators). Goldbeck makes use of cutting edge recruitment technology to ensure the right fit of a given candidate. Using a combination of assessments of aptitude and skill along with personality testing, we’re able to ensure your candidate hits the perfect balance as a team player and an innovator. Goldbeck uses a combination of personality tests like the enneagram test, which provides insight on the dominant emotional themes in a person’s personality, and the DiSC assessment, which zeroes in on a candidate’s specific patterns and tendencies. This combination means we’re sure to find a candidate not only with the right expertise, but with the right outlook and habits to mesh well with your team. After all, a creative and respectful, collegial team is far more productive than a dour one.

Top Life Sciences Recruiters

Whether you’re searching to build up a research team from scratch to develop a proprietary device or drug, or you’re looking for a new HR manager strong willed enough to handle your PI, Goldbeck can help you lock in the perfect candidate. In the course of our twenty years in business, we’ve met a lot of excellent candidates, many of whom were not right for previous placement opportunities but that may be perfect for yours. Combining our personal networks with new recruiting technology is a formula that we can always rely on to place candidates with efficiency and confidence.
