Hobson Prior invests in support for the medical technology industry with new Leeds-based office

Life sciences recruitment company, Hobson Prior, is excited to announce the opening of their newest office based in Leeds, United Kingdom.

After a period of continued success, Hobson Prior is continuing its global expansion - this time in Leeds, as our global hub for Medical Technology and Digital Health. Heading up the move is our long-serving Senior Director, David Chipp who will be growing out the division with the help of Callum McConnochie, our Director, Medical Technology & Digital Health.

This office is the latest opening for Hobson Prior, following launches in Basel, Switzerland and Cork, Ireland, as the company continues to expand and provide international recruitment solutions.

Managing Director, Patrick Forster:
“The launch of our Leeds office and development of our global medical technology and digital health team represents our commitment to this exciting and evolving sector of the industry. Leeds is an inspiring city and I am excited to lead our experienced and hungry team as we build a Northern Powerhouse for Hobson Prior’s recruitment support”

A reputation of Northern excellence

The north of England has an established industry for research and production within the pharmaceutical and medical technology sectors and Leeds holds a uniquely central position to many of the emerging hubs and sites. Leeds itself has a long history of innovation and many advancements in health and science have originated from the city. 

Senior Director - Europe, David Chipp:
“Our understanding of the structure of DNA, development of modern clinical thermometers and the first transplant of a human hand are some of the many impressive accolades from the city and Hobson Prior is excited to be launching an office in a city with a rich history of innovation.”

With over 125 research organisations and leading universities and hospitals and strong connections to other northern powerhouses including Manchester, Bradford & Sheffield, Leeds has a rich network of skilled professionals. Many leading pharma and medical technology companies have a presence in the North of England, including: EMIS Health, Dedalus Healthcare & GlaxoSmithKline.

The team, based in the city centre, will support the life sciences industry, specialising particularly within the medical technology sector. 

Investment supporting medical technology

The North of England has a long reputation for production and development within Medical Technology and this is an exciting time for medical technology. With advancements in robotics & machine learning, software and wearable technology and increased investment in digital transformation, we are seeing amazing developments across the sector that are really advancing patient treatment and healthcare. 

Director - Medical Technology, Callum McConnochie:
“The growth of the Medical Technology market is both exciting and inspiring. This is driven by several factors, including technological advancements, an ageing population, and increasing healthcare spending in developed/developing countries.
With the increase in demand and appetite for new technologies, along with enhancements in products and more transparency in day-to-day health, our clients need to hire smart & fast.
Having our base in Leeds, an incredible location with truly global connections through its Life Sciences & Medical Technology hubs, we are well placed to support our existing & future clients to help them achieve their growth potential globally.”
