The Company

We are very excited to be representing this prestigious, Central London based Search & Selection firm.

Based at their prestigious offices in Central London (with views to die for), our client works with large, Multinational organisations to secure the best talent within an interesting range of industry sectors.

The company is a pure ‘Search’ firm in that 100% of their business is retained in the traditional way (search/shortlist/success). However, due to current levels of success and repeat business they run at the pace of a contingent recruitment firm, making this an exciting place to work and full of big billers.

Working with Global clients, they have offices all over Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific. Having been established for a number of years, our client is experiencing a growth phase and is able to hire a new Research Consultant into their Life Sciences team.

The Research Consultant Role

Working with huge Multinational clients on a cross border basis, you will be expected to travel to meet clients and candidates. You will be involved in pitching for business and will be responsible for talent mapping and headhunting using a number of methodologies. Relationships will be built face to face and you will be encouraged to grow and develop your own community network. You will focus predominantly on the areas of Medical Devices, Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Diagnostics and Health & Nutrition.

You may be an experienced Researcher looking to take your career up to the next level in an impressive, Multinational search firm. Likewise, you may come from a contingency recruitment background (ideally within Life Sciences) and be looking for a step into search.

The Individual

The successful candidate for this Research Consultant role will need to be happy to travel on a regular basis. You may be in Europe or the Middle East for 2-3 days per week. For this reason, you must also travel well, meaning that you are able to relate to people and conduct business across a variety of cultural climates. Fluency in other languages is an advantage but not essential.

You should be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and even though it’s not fashionable to say so, you should be money motivated. The potential to bill big here is huge.

Whether you come from an Industry background, have previous Life Sciences recruitment experience or are a Graduate with a scientific degree and a desire to work in Executive Search, we would love to hear from you. You will need to be business focussed with a genuine passion for success.
