About the sector
Biotech recruitment in a fast-growing industry
The biotech industry is growing rapidly and so is biotech recruitment. The UK is leading Europe in this exciting and diverse field. Biotech involves all uses of biological processes in the development and manufacture of products as well as in discovering solutions to existing problems. Our clients are involved in a range of activities that utilise biotechnology including pharmaceuticals, agriculture and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG).
Our life sciences and biotech recruitment team work across industries sourcing specialists for the private, public and third sectors. We work with FTSE50 companies as well as small startups and publicly-funded research institutions.
Opportunities in biotech
At Hudson Shribman we recruit at all levels from support staff to senior directors. Our biotech recruitment team specialise in sourcing research and development staff and through working closely with the pharmaceutical, chemicals and FMCG teams we provide a comprehensive recruitment service. As well as offering permanent and contract staffing solutions we also offer an executive search service to source both senior and specialist professionals.
Specialist biotech companies are still limited in the UK and tend to be based around Oxford and Cambridge (plus a growing number in Scotland). Although we do supply staff to specialist biotech businesses the majority of our biotech recruitment is for multinational pharmaceutical, agriculture and FMCG corporations where biotech plays a key role in the development of their products.
