Our expertise

We take care of your company's health

The life sciences industry and the entire healthcare sector in Europe are undergoing fundamental change. Increased cost pressure, an increasingly dynamic environment and increased M&A activities have led to many companies having to adapt their structures. Digitalisation is also creating new opportunities along the entire value chain, but is also calling existing business models into question. As a result, existing job profiles need to be rethought in all areas. Our consultants have their finger on the pulse of the times and ensure that you can continue to fill key positions with the best talent in the future. We specialise in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and medical technology. Thanks to our many years of experience and our specially developed algorithm, we can find competent personnel for your open position.

High potential needs capable personnel

Biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and medical technology are among the industries with the highest turnover and most promise.

Biotechnology: between hope and challenge

The development of promising products and the simultaneous dependence on investors is a challenge for biotechnology companies. More than any other sector, biotechnology combines economics and the spirit of development. Every year, dozens of new companies start work in the biotechnology sector. This diversity is also reflected in the range of personnel: employees must be highly qualified and specialised - this requires experienced headhunters with an extensive network.

Pharmaceutical industry: high turnover and global

As one of the industries with the highest turnover, the pharmaceutical industry needs skilled specialists and managers more than ever. Globalisation is also opening up new markets. However, in order to gain a foothold in Brazil, India and China, the product range of many companies must change radically. The necessary rethink affects all levels of the value chain. This requires experienced managers who are able to inspire employees to embrace change.

Medical technology: new requirements through innovation

Networked hospitals, big data and telemedicine - digitalisation in medical technology has many faces. New opportunities are opening up everywhere, but the digital health scene is also presenting new challenges. Agile talents are needed who are able to adapt to the rapidly changing environment and keep pace with every development, no matter how fast. Of course, this also calls for fast recruiting - on average, we fill positions after just 63 days.
