Pharmaceutical & Life sciences Recruitment from Martin VeaseyBut how do you entice top talent to leave a role where job security is often guaranteed for years due to long-term clinical trials? In our case, by doing our homework. And lots of it. We’ll interrogate every facet of your business so that we can present a compelling and considered argument for joining your operation. Because the more we know about your culture, processes and commitment to corporate social responsibility, the better the fit we’ll find for you. And it’s this deep understanding that enables us to also headhunt talent outside of the pharmaceutical sector that we feel will both be able to make the switch successfully, as well as bring a fresh perspective.


Here are just a few reasons why we’re trusted to deliver in this sector: 

  • In a sector where high calibre talent is forever in high demand, we understand the importance of seeking out passive talent and providing them with a host of compelling and evidence-based reasons to move positions.
  • We have successfully recruited high level individuals and complete teams across the globe including Europe, Russia, Asia, South Africa and the Americas.
  • Whether supporting a small start up or pharmaceutical powerhouse, our global network of talent means you’ll only ever be put in touch with proven professionals who can truly add value and accelerate growth.
  • Our client portfolio covers global pharmaceutical companies, multinational clinical and contract research organisations, medical device pioneers and manufacturers, as well as a host of health, nutrition and cosmetic brands.

In their own words

“I have worked with Roheela and Martin Veasey Talent Solutions for 15 years now. Their responsiveness and customer service has been excellent, but more importantly their understanding and interpretation of my requirements has been paramount while they search the markets and find the right fit staff for my business needs. Over the past ten years my staff requirements have changed significantly from a UK-based need to a global one spanning 11 countries. All roles have to speak English, but all roles also need to be local nationals which is not easy to achieve, especially when you are recruiting in Latin America, South Africa, Russia, Japan, China, Singapore and Korea. Another significant impact of working with Roheela and Martin Veasey Talent Solutions is their ability to find good calibre people quickly and only present the best ones, which in turn allows me and my local teams to make good use of our time.”
