The Life Sciences sector, whether it is Pharma, Biotech, Medical Technology including Diagnostics or Devices, are facing many challenges and are dramatically changing at a rapid pace. Issues which are facing your organisation, whatever your size or wherever you are on the growth cycle, require talented and creative individuals who are highly motivated to lead organisations through this period of change. They in turn need great teams to support them in their endeavours. However, the search for talent has never been so fiercely competitive.

Whether it is driving change in existing functions or integrating new practices in the organisation, the search for great individuals is a global one.  The best candidates are not always found in the most obvious places, but can be found anywhere.  Therefore, the right approach and the management of candidates is crucial. The lines are becoming more blurred; talent is diverse both geographically and functionally, and more and more frequently migrates across the traditional industries which make up life sciences.

At Eric Salmon & Partners we focus on developing and attracting the most talented individuals, identifying the leadership of today and tomorrow.  We offer a full range of solutions to address your immediate and long term needs for building the best leadership teams using retained executive search, succession planning and talent identification and mapping services.

Eric Salmon & Partners International Life Sciences and Healthcare Practice is dedicated to your needs as a client, and understanding what makes your organisation unique.  As a specialist boutique we draw upon the resources and reach of a large search firm without the inevitably “off-limits” restrictions, and find talent other firms cannot talk to.  Our unrestricted view means we have clear sight of the best talent available, and only appoint those who best fit the culture of your organisation, can deliver on your business needs and expectations and have the potential to deliver for you in the long term.

With a deep understanding based on extensive experience of working across the industry and a diverse global office network, Eric Salmon and Partners Life Sciences practice work together as a single team to focus on your needs.  As a true partnership with one single P&L, we have no boundaries on putting global teams together to address your needs wherever they are.
