A client that we had been hoping to work with for some time suddenly asked us to source freelancers in Portugal, Spain, and East Europe after failing to find candidates with the requisite experience from 56 applicants through LinkedIn. With no experience of current rates for freelance professionals in the space and pressures on their time and resources, they turned to us for help.
After an in-depth discussion on the roles required and the desired skillsets and therapeutic areas, we immediately suggested a candidate that we thought would work for one of the target countries. This quick response, as well as our track record in the space, was reassuring, and our suggested process and timeline were readily approved, as well as an interview for that first candidate.
Other CV’s were provided the same day, followed by a suggested interview schedule.
Within two weeks, we placed 3 Clinical Research Associates in the target countries.
The client was very happy with the service we provided, and we are now in regular contact on other roles and have been referred to other clinical operation directors.
