The situation

*Names have been changed to provide anonymity

We worked with a biometrics job seeker, called Simon*, who was unhappy in his current permanent position at a CRO and wanted a new job that would elevate his career. Based in Swansea, his local opportunities were limited and while many of his colleagues were relocating to Europe for work, he had family commitments in Wales.

He spoke with other recruitment agencies, but was feeling frustrated as they continued to present him with overseas roles that didn’t match his career goals. He wanted to progress in his career, but needed to be able to stay in Wales to secure a practical work-life balance.

Hobson Prior solution

Simon was recommended by his colleague to Michael Masoomi, a principal recruitment consultant at Hobson Prior specialising in the biometrics sector. His colleague has worked with Mike before, who was able to find him a job at a company that other recruiters didn’t have access to.

Simon spoke to Mike about his career, experience and personal commitments, allowing Mike to build an accurate idea of the type of positions he would be interested in pursuing.

As location was a key aspect of his requirements, Mike suggested Simon explore home-based opportunities. This would open his options to an international level, without the need to relocate.

Mike was able to widen the search and include global, leading pharmaceutical companies and CROs to the search, whilst focusing on jobs that allow for a balance between Simon’s work ambitions and family commitments.

Having built strong relationships with our clients, Mike was able to go direct to hiring managers and consult his network to identify roles that were yet to be publicly released yet, many of which we had exclusive access to.

The result

With this knowledge and his connections, Mike was able to offer Simon various home-based positions with reputable pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies across the UK and Europe, none of which required relocation.

With Mike’s help identifying unreleased roles and his support throughout the interview process, Simon was able to accept a home-based role with a well-known pharmaceutical company.

Since then, Simon has returned to Hobson Prior for his last three placements, choosing to work exclusively with our biometrics team thanks to their understanding of his work-life balance.
