PharmaRelations leading recruiter for Nordic Life Science
30 November 2021
PharmaRelations is the leading recruitment company for Life Science in the Nordics
PharmaRelations recruitment division works across all Nordic countries, with particularly strong centers in Stockholm and Copenhagen, due to the size of the Life Science specialist market in these two cities.
Helena Marteus is leading Nordic Recruitment from her base in Stockholm.
- Together with all my colleagues in PharmaRelations Group we conduct some 2000 interviews every year and meet many of the specialists in Nordic Life Science, that is part of our success, we have an extensive network in all Nordics, says Helena Marteus.
- My team with five colleagues in Stockholm are each focusing on specific areas of Life Science and are incredibly knowledgeable in their expertise domains. Our Copenhagen team has three persons working on recruitment, growing in the new year with yet another member. In Oslo and Helsinki we are one recruiter in each place. We work closely together across the countries and take on many multi geography recruitment projects, says Helena.
All of us have long backgrounds from Life Science, specialist roles, or from recruitment. I myself, as an example have a solid education background in pharmacology and organic chemistry, I have worked in the industry, and I have devoted the last 15 years to recruitment, an area that I am passionate about.
- We are some 200 associates in PharmaRelations in total, most are specialists in diverse fields, so I and my recruiter colleagues have an army of easily accessible experts, do we need to know more about any specific function or role. We have 14 000 followers on LinkedIn, and the Job hub on our web page www.pharmarelations.com constantly expose some 20-30 interesting job posts, with new ones posted every day. The visibility in the Nordic Life Science community of our available positions is another reason for our success, says Helena.
Please contact any of us if you wish to discuss recruitments in any field of Life Science and across the Nordics.
More men joining PharmaRelations create a better gender balance – thanks to our Engineers
With our focus on Medical Engineering and Medical Device regulatory, we have recently seen an inflow of more men in our company, creating a new and wonderful gender balance.
Thomas Grundström who recently took on the position as Nordic Head Medical Engineering has already created a team of many engineers around him, preparing for a very busy start of 2022. Within Thomas area we focus on validation engineers, project leaders with technical background, process- and production specialists for Life Science. See facts about Pharmarelations Medical engineers below, with contact info.
Same goes for Anders Wihlborg, Head of Medical Device within our Regulatory Services division. Anders Medical Device sector is growing as fast as we can recruit specialists. However, he has also found several female colleagues.
Within our recruitment team in Stockholm, Erik Wallin is the team member that mostly focuses on technical and medtech recruitment. Passionate about technical issues, he recruits both female and male candidates with the same eagerness.
Finally, Victoria Lindström, Consultant Manager within Medical, is spending a lot of time finding the best consultants for various positions within the lab and scientific space, and quite often she ends up with a male laboratory or process engineer.
PharmaRelations is working hard to become the Best Workplace in Life Science and an inclusive workplace with specialists from varied backgrounds is part of our recipe for success. Gender balance, age balance and ethnic variation are truly important factors for us. No joke.
Our Copenhagen office extending space again – We are growing!
For the third time in the same office building, Hummeltoftevej 49, in Virum, PharmaRelations must extend the office space, now to a full floor of our own. The move will be an easy one without much disturbance and take place in early February 2022.
PharmaRelations Denmark, Gazelle awarded by Børsen this autumn, is going for a second award next year, so the space is needed for planned growth.
