We entered the growing Life Sciences market in response to the demand for extra coverage from our existing clients. In an evolving sector, with frequent new initiatives and everchanging regulations, our clients were struggling to find the best talent, particularly after the local market had been exhausted. With our deep market penetration and international network, we were able to give them an immediate competitive advantage by sourcing less visible, passive talent and professionals from abroad. Our in-depth sector knowledge of trends combined with our expertise on brand awareness in the sector meant that smaller companies were also able to come to market and compete.
Our clients need to constantly adapt to keep up with changes in the industry to not only stay ahead of their competition, but also because delays in discovering and producing drugs can cost them millions. Changes also usually require a change in people, so there is more demand than ever for the best talent, meaning they have had to improve their candidate experience and improve their flexible working offering too.
We have continued to build our candidate networks and adapt our sourcing and engagement methods to be better and quicker to supply talent. The high level of support we give to Life Sciences businesses has a direct impact on their ability to discover, test and produce new drugs safely and compliantly, and we are proud to play our part in helping our clients go to market and transform the lives of their patients.
