Our foundation

Our backgrounds as scientists grant us a unique insight into how life science and biotech companies work, and what kind of people they need to succeed. We’re experts at creating connections between companies and talents where both parties feel they have found a perfect match for their vision and goals – and can build a long-term working relationship. Our deep understanding of our industry, as well as our combined 60 years of recruitment experience, place us in an ideal position as executive search partners. We cover the whole spectrum of search levels, from working with young start-ups and building their teams, to replacing board members. We are dedicated to finding the perfect match for every role, and have a track record that proves our success in doing so.

How we work

We believe that executive recruitment is about more than methods and procedures. It’s about adding new perspectives and offering innovative, flexible and sustainable solutions so that our clients can attract and hire the best talent for the job that the market has to offer. That’s why companies need a tailor-made search procedure for each assignment, which we have the experience and expertise to offer. We assess each project starting from our client’s needs, and approach the complete pool of potential candidates, whether they’re already on the lookout for a new job or not. Our specialised knowledge and in-depth experience in our field means that we have a unique standpoint when it comes to creating links and connections that others might not think of.

During our close cooperation, I was impressed how well the potential candidates were preselected according to our demands. Their interview summaries in writing, which we received as preparation, were very useful to decide which candidate to invite first. The ones we have seen were personally and professionally perfectly suited to our needs and ideas.
