Candidate Services

Candidates are central to PiR’s success. As such we make sure that everyone in our extensive network is treated with the highest respect and professionalism.

We are always interested to hear from individuals considering a career move, whether you are wanting to put yourself forward for one of our current opportunities, would like us to keep your details in our database or perhaps you’d like some impartial career advice.

As a result of PiR’s exclusive focus in the life science industry, we are able to offer career guidance and industry insights to senior candidates who are considering their next move. As with all our relationships, we aspire to the long term, recognising that the candidate of today can become the client of tomorrow, and vice versa!

Given our focus in placing senior leaders and technical experts, both in permanent and interim roles, our advice will be particularly relevant to:

  • Senior executives considering their next permanent career move
  • Experienced interim managers seeking their next assignment
  • Aspiring interims who want to understand more about what it takes to become a successful interim

Client demand for our services focuses mainly on candidates in the following functions:

  • Medical/Medical Affairs/Medical Science Liaison
  • Regulatory
  • Programme Management
  • Supply Chain
  • Market Access
  • Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR)
  • Pricing and Reimbursement
  • Senior Commercial roles
  • Advanced Therapies
  • Translational Medicine

We are client driven, since they pay our fees, and we do not charge our candidates! The initial review of your details will focus on how your profile reflects the needs of our clients. If it is clear that we can support your job search, we will suggest a confidential discussion with a member of the team. For ease of geography, this can often start on the telephone.

We believe strongly in managing your expectations to support your search, in recognition of the flexibility required to succeed in very fluctuating markets. Equally we are sure you will understand that we are unable to help everyone. In this situation, we will endeavour to recommend other channels to explore and support your search.

Whilst working with PiR recently, I was very impressed with the quality of their candidate service. I found the team to be polite, attentive and proactive in all areas of the recruitment process, particularly in the arrangement and follow up to interviews. Their service was efficient and clear, and they kept me well informed throughout the entire process. In comparison with other, larger recruitment companies I have worked with, I found PiR to be a cut above the rest, and would highly recommend them to all in my network. CEO candidate
