Linking talented next generation leaders with the world’s most innovative biotechs.
My relationship with the team spans well over a decade. I have worked with the senior members throughout my career on numerous occasions. Links are a widely recognised and trusted team of industry experts that can be relied upon to deliver top quality candidates within tight deadlines.
As a client, Links have helped me appoint a variety of business-critical senior positions, most recently playing a key role in hiring a number of newly created senior commercial positions to spearhead our first European Oncology Product launch.
Tim Jones, Senior Global Commercial Leader
We needed to engage Links on a very specific business critical search. The team were outstanding, very knowledgeable and clearly experienced and keen to understand as much about the company and our values/ethos, as they were about finding the right person to fit. A written brief was followed up with a face to face in depth, ‘deep-dive’ on qualities, experience and future aspirations for the right individual.
Links managed the whole process very professionally, and delivered an outstanding candidate. Additionally, the candidate has been very complimentary on how approachable, informative and supportive Links were on the candidate side throughout the rapid process.
Andy Rawson, Head of Europe
I have worked with Links for the past few years in two different companies. My experience has been very much that of a partnership, really understanding the need of my business and identifying candidates that fit the need.
In addition, I would say that the team have a very in-depth experience and understanding of the needs of both biotech and medium/big pharma companies.
Neelam Taykar, Business Leader
Our highly experienced team have an established reputation as trusted recruitment experts within pharma and biotech. We cover a wide range of roles at senior to executive level across multiple functional areas within clinical, medical affairs and commercial.
We are passionate about providing an exemplary candidate and client experience. As a team we have delivered outstanding results across a variety of geographies and filled some of the most critically demanding and hard to fill senior level positions.
In a dramatically fast changing landscape, there is naturally a greater urgency around time to hire. Our innovative methods help companies deliver results faster and more efficiently without compromising on quality.
We are totally committed to maintaining a director-led project management philosophy within which there is no dilution of performance standards through delegation to outsourced providers or inexperienced consultants.
Team builds require a combination of resilience and determination coupled with a clear sense of urgency and understanding of the overall business goals and culture. Our team have a strong heritage spanning over a decade in the recruitment of specialist team builds across the UK and Europe.
Since inception, we have completed major team builds for a number of established Pharma companies and start-up speciality companies, most recently a European wide Oncology commercial team, for a US Start up.
Working extensively with start-up organisations means that we understand permanent talent isn’t always the right solution. We follow the same robust recruitment processes and utilise our talent network to facilitate short term interim hires that can have an immediate impact on your business without the commitment and cost of permanent headcount.
Our extensive experience within the Biopharma space means that we have consistently offered our network more than just recruitment. Frequently working with start-ups during build and growth phases means that we are often relied upon to provide interim support in order to simplify this critical growth period.
As a team of trusted advisors and industry experts, knowing what is happening in the market and having the appropriate intel at our fingertips is tantamount to success. We spend our time getting to know the best industry partners around and at which stage they should be deployed so we can guide accordingly.
In order to provide our clients with the breadth of services that they require at different stages of their growth, we ensure that we are networked and connected with the best strategic partners in the industry. This means that we are able to maintain a focus on what we do best whilst helping our clients achieve their business goals.
We partner with a select group of consulting individuals and organisations so that we are able to recommend our clients the appropriate partner for a variety of specialist areas and have the confidence that they will do a great job to our high standards.
