At S3 Science, our recruitment team merges more than half a century of combined recruitment knowledge. We have ensured that several things set us apart from the competition, supreme expertise and a passion for the research industry are a couple of them. We genuinely love what we do.

In our time, there is not a Life Science recruitment issue which has not been addressed at some time or other by someone in our business, and we are lucky enough to have staff retention figures which guarantee that knowledge is locked in with us to the benefit of our clients and candidates. This is the key to why we are recognised as the recruitment leaders in our field.

Of course, it’s not just the knowledge that keeps us ahead of the game but the effective sharing of it internally, which is valuable to those we work with. Creating a learning environment takes time, but when it’s done well, it’s as much a winning formula for clients we work with as it is for our staff.

We recognise that training our recruiters is pivotal to ensuring the quality of service for clients and candidates alike, and we know our learning environment is reflected in the service they receive. We know because we’ve asked. The more we train and develop our staff, the better they serve you.

Being the most extensive Life Science recruiter, you can rest assured the service you receive will be second to none. Please feel free to read more about our recruitment services below:

This has grown over many years and set the foundation to the open and honest business relationship we now have.”
