Talent Partner

Who we are…

Here at Lead Candidate we are committed to supporting developing companies in the pharmaceutical and biotech outsourcing space. However, the recruitment landscape for this industry is out of date. So, we’ve set about bringing solutions and experiences that this incredible industry deserves.

We work differently by embedding ourselves as strategic talent partners to a select number of clients. This allows us to devote our time and expertise to making their growth targets a reality whilst going above and beyond to provide an excellent experience. 

We are just over a year into our journey and we’re flying! With brilliant customers in the US and Europe – we’re ambitious and growing.

With this growth comes the time for us to admit that we need help! And we’re looking for someone special who shares our vision for changing the recruitment landscape for the better, permanently. 

We are based in the bonny North East of England, but we operate globally. Our office is based in Newcastle, with an opportunity for hybrid working.

What we do…

Our Talent Champions provide an incredible service to our customers, ensuring they receive a consistent, quality experience. Day to day your role will vary based on the nature of live projects, and could include any of the following:

  • Working with clients to diagnose their talent attraction issues
  • Utilising state of the art tech stack to provide incredible shortlists
  • Overseeing client recruitment marketing campaigns  
  • Full search and selection for specific projects

Talent Champions are experts in all things talent attraction and hiring, so these examples are a snapshot of what the role will encompass. 

About You…

Lead Candidate is a values-led, politely disruptive, talent acquisition partnering service. We hold our values dear, and we expect you to as well. We are honest, which also means sometimes telling hard truths. We are experts in our field, and we are devoted to our customers, working with only a select few at any one time.

You will probably have had some exposure to recruitment or experience in a client facing role involving direct interaction with customers. We’re not demanding that you be a talent acquisition whizz, just that you will relish the opportunity to learn and grow with us as we disrupt the recruitment industry for the better. 

We operate exclusively in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology outsourcing space (but that doesn’t mean you have to!) We work with businesses who are improving the lives of people around the world. If you’re passionate about playing a role in that – we’d love to hear from you.
