We Connect Hiring Managers to Top Talent

From science and business development to quality and regulatory, we are Life Science and Medical Device industry experts who understand the growing talent needs and know how to spot today’s top candidate. Verticals of focus include Discovery & Pre-Clinical, Technical Operations, Clinical Development, Regulatory Affairs, Quality (Quality Assurance & Quality Control), Project & Program Management, and Commercial roles.

We Speed Up the Hiring Process

While there are many open roles and a skilled talent shortage, Michael Page consistently places talented professionals in technical and commercial positions with relatively few interviews — an average of 2.6 interviews candidates per hire.

This is essential when a quick hiring process in this market is needed to acquire specialized candidates. In a candidate short market, we often see top talent considering multiple offers at once, which means that if you’re slow on the draw, you’ll likely miss out on that perfect new hire. We combat this with our robust candidate networks and best-in-class sourcing strategies to provide candidate shortlists quickly, giving you a jumpstart to your search, giving you an edge over the competition.

We Nurture Relationships to Offer Reliable Service

Michael Page invests a lot of energy in nurturing our partnerships with both clients and candidates, establishing consistent lines of communication, checking in regularly and working to keep every search on track. Our ongoing relationships enable us to truly get to know and understand the culture and specific needs of organizations we work with, which means that we can more accurately source the right candidates for their open positions.

We Tailor Each Search to the Organization’s Needs

About 90% of our current business comes from personal referrals and repeat clients, but no two searches are ever identical. We take a tailored approach to each role we fill, thoroughly understanding the requirements. Because we are agile and incorporate feedback into our searches, we can provide consistent results, such as filling a challenging executive-level role within 5 weeks.

We Offer Market Insights to Inform Hiring Strategies

In addition to the first-hand experiences gained from our consultants recruiting within the Life Sciences industry every day, Michael Page regularly produces free-to-access data-driven insights such as salary guides, EVP best practice eBooks, etc. on our website which can be leveraged to inform an organization’s hiring strategies.
