East Coast Recruiting Firm to Spread Success to the West Coast

October 15, 2013

StratAcuity opens site in La Jolla, California to meet the escalating demands for scientific and clinical talent within San Diego's biopharmaceutical industry.

Cambridge, MA October 15, 2013  StratAcuity, www.stratacuity.com, a leading Boston area based staffing and placement firm specializing in the recruitment of biopharmaceutical professionals, has announced its recent expansion of their services to San Diego. This office opening is part of a larger expansion occurring over the next five years.

Based in La Jolla, the new StratAcuity office will serve San Diego's burgeoning need for top scientific and clinical talent. This will be achieved through a proprietary recruitment process that uses the experience derived from successfully serving over one-hundred biopharmaceutical organizations throughout the Cambridge/Boston area since 2000.

"Expanding into San Diego has been something we've wanted to do for a long time," says Founder and COO, Rob Patten, "Until we could commit to establishing a true, 'feet on the street' presence in San Diego, we chose to hold off entirely because face to face meetings with our clients and candidates is a hallmark of our success. Biopharmaceutical recruitment is an inherently personal experience - too much gets lost in translation if you try to conduct it exclusively over the phone. Achieving the level of success we demand requires a physical presence and we are excited to enter the West Coast market poised to succeed."

StratAcuity embraces the various approaches to biopharmaceutical organizational structure, reflected in their flexible service offerings, which include; full-time staffing and temporary, temporary-to-permanent and traditional permanent placement (retained, hybrid & contingency). Moreover, StratAcuity maintains expert in-house recruitment leadership in three critical disciplines; Discovery, Development & Clinical. Their refined recruitment approach and ability to dig deep on search assignments, provides exceptionally qualified candidates from Research Associate to Chief Science Officer, while reducing the cost of hiring.
