The growth of biotechnology in the UK has been phenomenal and in recent years we have noticed a dramatic uplift in the demand for biotech professionals. This is largely due to a large number of biotech businesses emerging to explore new and innovative therapies. As a recruitment consultancy specialising in the scientific industry we are uniquely positioned to identify employment trends and skills shortages so feel we can share our expertise and knowledge with those that need it most.
