Permanent pharmaceutical hires

If you’re looking to hire permanent staff in the pharmaceutical industry, Hobson Prior can help. We know finding the right candidate can be difficult as they need the right skill set and experience, as well as having values that match your company culture. That’s why we get to know every candidate we speak to. We learn their motivations and experience which helps us to assess their compatibility with the pharmaceutical companies we work with so we can connect the best candidates to the right projects.

Temporary pharmaceutical hires

A temporary employee is a great solution if you need to quickly fill a position in your company for a certain amount of time. As a leading pharmaceutical recruitment agency, Hobson Prior offers cost-effective recruitment plans to ensure you can quickly fill the position with minimal hassle.

We have immediate access to pools of qualified candidates around the world, especially in cities with a large life sciences presence. Our recruiters proactively build these candidate pools, so we’re likely already in touch with high-quality candidates who would be a great fit for your business. This enables us to offer a list of pre-screened candidates within 48 hours.

Pharmaceutical executive search

With over 20 years of experience in life sciences, and with many of our recruiters possessing experience within the industry themselves, we are in an ideal position as a pharma recruitment agency to help you fill senior leadership and board-level positions.

Executive-level roles in pharmaceutical companies are crucial to the successful launch of a product and ensuring you have the right choice of candidates with the values, experience and skillsets your team requires is key.

Our services are highly bespoke so you can find the exact candidates you need for your business and situation, despite the level of seniority or complexity of the role.
