Proclinical adds Cambridge to global life science recruitment portfolio
Global life sciences recruitment and consulting business Proclinical has opened an office at Chesterford Research Park to service the Cambridge life sciences and MedTech cluster.
A market leader in the UK and US, the specialist staffing firm has launched offices in Shanghai, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Melbourne and Sydney in recent months.
The new Cambridge base is intended to provide a springboard to further expansion across the UK and internationally.
The team at Chesterford will operate under the Proclinical Executive brand, focused on fulfilling executive and senior level search appointments for early stage, growth stage and SMEs across all areas of life sciences, and work closely with the Proclinical Staffing team in the capital to supply permanent and contract recruitment solutions.
They will join a variety of established and early-stage pharma, biotech and technology research and development companies at the 250-acre parkland facility near Cambridge, including Arecor, AstraZeneca, Cambridge Epigenetix, Lonza, Microbiotica, Isogenica and Camena Bioscience.
Director, Iain Hopper said: “Cambridge is a world-class life science hub, making it an obvious strategic interest for Proclinical, which continues to expand to meet the increasing demand of our partners across the industry.
“Despite the abundance of talent in the area, our partners aren’t always able to recruit locally so as truly global life sciences specialists we're uniquely placed to unearth and mobilise people with the experience and niche skillsets they are looking for from all over the world.
“From these superb new facilities we are able to expand our UK and global operations to support our partners’ continued growth as well as our own.”
