An exceptional year for the PiR team


St Ives, UK – 2016 has proven to be a phenomenal year of success and growth for the specialist life science recruitment company PiR. Team work, client engagement and an in-depth understanding of the market have resulted in PiR’s most exciting and rewarding year to date, as it continues to work with an outstanding array of companies in the innovative early stage life science space.

Sally Hope, MD of PiR, commented: “Our success is directly attributable to the knowledge the team has of our clients; we know how to identify and attract rare skills for early stage innovative companies, and add value at every stage of the recruitment process. Our clients are seeking world class talent to drive their businesses forward, helping them to achieve ambitious milestones and meet investor expectations; these skills are in demand and often in short supply. We frequently have excellent feedback from them on the quality of our reporting, our ability to identify outstanding talent for their executive teams, and the speed and flexibility of our working practices.”

Carolyn Douthwaite, founder and non-executive Chair of PiR, added: “It is deeply satisfying to build long term relationships with these fascinating companies that ultimately will change the landscape of personalised medicine. Increasingly, we are winning business over global life science Executive Search firms, as companies recognise the expertise we bring to this arena. I would like to congratulate Sally and her team for their tremendous effort and the success it has created. It has been fun, lively, not without its challenges, but fundamentally immensely satisfying.”
