Biotech, pharma and medical device companies within Europe need to be aware that they could lose their best employees to countries further afield.
Recent research has found that most professionals within these industries are feeling a lot more confident with job security than they have done for many years. However in turn this confidence is leading to many people opening themselves up to the job market and considering what else is around.
Better career opportunities and improved salaries in economically expanding countries are enticing precious employees away from Europe. It is thought many would be happy to go “across the pond” as well as considering taking a position in the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China). This could potentially lead to an industry battle that would be better not fought. But unless Europe can accommodate more demanding employees, they could experience a skills shortage. In essence it is essential that European companies offer an attractive proposition to current and future employees and win the war on talent.

A day in the life of a Kinetica Recruitment Consultant
- Find Candidate
- Find Clients
- Match the right people to the right job
- Arrange interviews
- Place people in new jobs
If upon starting with Kinetica you are new to recruitment we will give you a weeks long intensive training – which will take you through the basic “ins and outs” of what the job entails. You will then be prepared to start tackling the job in hand. You’ll be sat amongst experienced consultants to help guide you through the day to day tasks but it will be up to you to get the ball rolling.
- Find Candidates – We have an extensive database which is a vital resource for finding candidates, however other methods we use are headhunting, external candidate databases and obtaining referrals. It will be up to you to contact these candidates to discuss the relevant opportunity and guage their interest.
- Find Clients – Build relationships with Key Decision Makers / HR Departments; gather valuable information about the client. You may need to visit the client face-to-face.
- Find Vacancies – Talk to clients to obtain vacancies that they are currently looking to fill. You will also need to keep up to date with industry news and finding vacancies advertised in other media sources, i.e. websites, industry journals and magazines.
- Arrange Interviews - Send an appropriate shortlist of candidates to the client so that they can then decide who they want to bring in for interview. You will then arrange first and second interviews between the candidate and client and fully brief all parties in preparation. After the interview you need to get feedback from both parties and aid the client in their decision making process.
- Place people in new jobs - Hopefully an offer will then be made to one of your candidates, at which point you need to manage all the job offer negotiations right up until the candidate commences employment. This could entail advice on offer procedures, resignation, appropriate salary.
Fingers crossed the placements will come rolling in – but in order to maintain constant business you will need to attend relevant exhibitions, take advantage of any networking situation, constantly hunt for suitable candidates and vacancies, visit key clients and hold candidate interview days out of the office.
At Kinetica we pride ourselves on NOT being a consultancy that just puts “Bums on Seats” – we make sure we are only talking to candidates about jobs we genuinely think they can do and will enjoy. Therefore it’s paramount that our consultants have the desire to work ethically, effectively and efficiently on all our candidates and clients behalf. In return you will get immense job satisfaction and reap the rewards of what can be an extremely well paid career.

Christmas is around the corner, so as well as eating lots of food, playing charades and watching the TV Christmas specials – why not take half an hour to update your CV. With these times of austerity, it’s certainly a wise move to make sure you’re ready for any eventuality or perhaps you’re already contemplating a career move. Recruitment often slows down around christmas, however the New Year always brings fresh and exciting opportunities. Don’t miss out on potential career progression because you haven’t got round to preparing your CV. Here are some simple points to remember:
- Keep it short and to the point, but make sure the content is as strong as it can be.
- Don’t write more than two pages.
- Format your C.V. in a neat and orderly fashion.
- Education and Employment must be listed with most recent first.
- Try to make your strong points subtly stand out from the rest of the page.
- Include necessary contact details so that the employer can easily get in touch with you.
- Include briefly what you achieved in other roles and how you made that happen.
- Use constructive wording, but don’t lie!
- Careful of being too honest, e.g. Don’t say that you like to go out drinking (even though it may be true).
- Include referees you know are prepared to say good things about you. If you can’t contact them immediately, write ‘References available on request’

The Biomedical Catalyst is a programme of public funding, managed jointly by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) – together they will help provide support to various business and academic projects, such as R&D and clinical studies. These grants have been awarded to projects led by Universities and small and medium sized businesses to speed up the development of pioneering solutions to healthcare issues that we face, into commercially viable propositions that will benefit patients.
It is hoped that this investment will keep Britain at the forefront of life sciences, will help bring excellent scientific ideas to market and in turn will benefit the patients through improvements in healthcare.
Some key healthcare areas that are already benefiting from grants are: Dementia – with the aim of faster, earlier and more cost effective diagnosis.
Flu Jab – human trials conducted at the University of Oxford will hopefully mean there is a universal flu jab that could protect against all the known strains of the illness.
Prostate Cancer – Immunocore are looking at a new targeted therapy for the treatment of prostate cancer.
