Search by SRG is a market-leading executive recruitment service that brings you the best middle and senior managers in STEM. This tailored recruitment service proactively targets niche mid-to-senior level candidates -- giving you the confidence that you’re recruiting the market's best talent.
Search by SRG partnered with a recruitment processing outsourcing (RPO) service to support the recruitment of specialist scientific roles for a biopharmaceutical company in Belgium.
Our client was urgently recruiting for a number of highly specialised mid-senior level roles within the GxP disciplines and wanted a recruitment partner that had an understanding of the market, roles and the unique skill-set required.
Due to where the roles are based, there was also a need to search outside of the local market, with the possibility of successful candidates having to move country.
According to the RPO services Director:
"We knew we needed to work with a niche recruitment service and chose Search by SRG because of their knowledge and expertise in Belgium as well as Europe more broadly and network of candidates. As we were using a third-party supplier it was also essential that we worked with a partner that we could trust to deliver for our client."
SRG’s Search service was able to use its extensive GxP candidate network across Europe, CEE, the Nordics, and the US to engage active and passive candidates that fit the requirements of the roles.
Regular meetings and reports were provided to support the RPO in engaging with their client and ensure that they were confident that the candidates were at the required level.
"At SRG, we pride ourselves on supporting our candidates and thus ensured we were readily available (including on weekends) to answer any questions and help candidates prepare for interviews."
-- Richard Acton, Director, SRG
As well as guaranteeing that the client was at ease, the Search team worked closely with any potential candidates to understand their career aspirations, the role, the organisation and its culture, as well as ensuring they would be well-equipped for the possibility of relocating to Belgium.
All three roles were filled by candidates sourced by the Search team.
The RPO went on to say that:
"In a short space of time, Search by SRG have helped add value in facilitating urgent niche specialist vacancies. We are very pleased with our partnership and look forward to many more years of working together."
And thanks to our candidate-first approach, those we placed in open positions were extremely satisfied with our service. As a successful candidate who started an Associate Director role went on to say:
"I would not hesitate to recommend Search to anyone in my network and look forward to keeping in touch and working together in the future."
