devoted to you

We don't differentiate between those looking to hire and those looking to be hired. There is no such thing as client and candidate. Just goals, ambitions and challenges in equal measure. That is where we come in.

We are your people

Wherever you operate across the supply chain, we exist for you. No one else. Just you. Our career-coaching approach to people looking to the future means we only work with the best of the best.

We are dedicated to supporting senior executives that are responsible for hiring in companies that operate in pharma and biopharma contract services. We work with you to diagnose, define and deliver the talent agenda and experience you aspire to.

Responsible recruitment

It's no secret. The pharma and biopharma sector has a huge challenge on its hands when it comes to EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion).  We are driven to ensure fair treatment.

Age. Disability. Gender. Race. Sexual orientation.

It makes no difference to us. A lead candidate is a lead candidate.

So whoever you are, know that we will represent you in a respectful and dignified manner. It costs nothing to be a good human.

Our objective as a business is to represent people from all walks of life. As such, we actively aim to have a community that represents the diversity of the wonderful world we live in. This is a core ethos of a business, represented by our own diverse team. For employers, this means working with a partner that can help you with your EDI initiative and goals. For individuals looking for the perfect fit, we are here to help you. Our job is to level the playing field. If you’re good enough for the job, then nothing else matters.

For any individuals that have been misrepresented or simply overlooked for the wrong reasons in the past, then we encourage you to get in touch.

We can’t promise you the dream job tomorrow, but we can promise to care.

Don't take our word for it

Lead Candidates network of marketing professionals proved invaluable for two reasons. First, it helped me understand the salary and candidate pool specific to the area I needed to hire. Second, their extensive network of professionals led to the right candidate that fit our growing business needs.

They were inquisitive about the project and took the time to understand the needs of both the opportunity and the culture of the company. Their extensive network of contacts was instrumental in making a successful hire.

Lead Candidate has set the standard for all other agencies… I never put my name behind companies and say, ‘you can trust these guys’ but for Lead Candidate, I say that.

I’ve never had a partner that was so willing to be authentic, get down into the mud with us right into the strategy and to figuring things out with us and be willing to be that thought partner and then take strategy into execution.

He is open to learning and he builds relationships and connections with people easily, which enables him to make people feel comfortable, maintain their interest and keep people informed. He is a pleasure to work with and embodies Lead Candidate’s values.
