Life Sciences

Let's Save Lives

The Life Science division is focused on finding talent nationwide for small and mid-size organizations within the Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, Medical Devices and Diagnostics industries.

As you can imagine, each of these disciplines require a certain level of experience and a specialized skill set that the typical “technical” individual may not possess. That is why our Life Sciences team relies on the relationships we have built over the last five decades and extensive research to pinpoint the right solutions for any challenge we face.

Our goal is to deliver top talent to organizations in ways that are the best fit for our client: whether it be retained, contingency or contract. We want to improve the careers of every candidate we speak with and improve the talent pool of every client. We are experts in helping candidates and clients better understand what is in their best interests now and in the future.

Our work helps to save lives and cure diseases. How often have you heard a recruiter boast that statement? With every successful project and search, Shawn improves lives and the chances of continued life. Knowing that we truly can and do make a difference makes everything about this profession worthwhile and extraordinary.
“There is no other industry in the world that I can directly see the impact I make and the quality of my work. Within my field, I am saving lives and curing diseases. Typically, those quotes are heard from doctors. But, I am in the unique situation of directly influencing the success of an organization and their ability to do just that, save lives and cure diseases. Nothing is more rewarding than hearing the stories and accounts from the companies that realize how significant the right individual can be in any situation.” – Shawn Barley
