Global reach

Scienta is an international organisation, with a special focus on the European and North American markets. When you join our worldwide network of clients and candidates, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of a truly global recruitment partner.

“With over 20 years combined experience between us, we all had the same frustration with the life science recruitment industry. We wanted to be different and creative but, also, to give a simple and specialist solution. We wanted to work closer with clients to form long-standing relationships, so that is what we did. Founded in 2017 we have gone from strength to strength and have become a trusted recruitment partner in the industry. Our client experience is always at the forefront of what we do, that’s why our core values, transparency, creativity and vibrancy are seen throughout Scienta in every consultant – so all our clients have the same specialist Scienta experience.”

Thank you to the Scienta Team especially to Katie! The search of a new candidate was excellent and exceptional. Katie was providing a great support. The next searches will be placed with Scienta again -for sure.
I had the opportunity to work with Lauren who was very patient and diligent. She found the people with the right skills for my team.

The entire selection process with Connor Baumann from Scienta for my new position, went fantastically well. I consider it specially remarkable his recommendations on how to proceed with my off-boarding from my now former company. He also provided me with very useful information or guidance in each of my interviews with new company and he always kept me up to date with any news throughout the process. Very happy he relied on my profile for the new position and that he managed the process so well.

Will Tarbox and the Scienta team has been a key partner in the growth of Simcere’s Boston Innovation Center. They have successfully supported searches for our early discovery and clinical development team, from associate to executive level roles. They are professional, knowledgeable, and highly capable of biotech recruitment. I would recommend their recruitment services to any biotech company looking for candidates in all phases of life sciences.

What we do best


Clinical Research & Physicians

Clinical Development combines all activities which are focused on the preparation, analysis, and safety of a trial or study. Those working within the space are entrusted to determine the efficacy and/or dosing of the drug in development. This is usually split into 4 different stages; I-IV.

This coincides with Clinical Operations, which is key to the delivery of clinical trails for the drug development pipeline. Without this function, clinical research studies could not be effectively conducted. Professionals in this sector are responsible for designing, planning, and executing Phase I to Phase III clinical trails, as well as Phase IV post-marketing surveillance.

Scientific & Preclinical

The preclinical and scientific function is where companies take their compounds from conception through to First-In-Human clinical trials. The main goal is to establish a safe starting dose and assess potential toxicity of the product in the FIH trials to then be able to progress into early stages of drug development process.

Regulatory Affairs

Regulatory affairs is a function within the life science industry that oversees how a variety of drugs and medical products are developed, manufactured, approved and distributed to ensure they meet set regulatory standards for use in humans. Given its prevalence throughout the full life-cycle, it’s a critical area within any life science company of any size and the specific skill-sets for each role differ vastly.

Quality Assurance & Validation

Quality Assurance is a major function covered by Scienta, with specialist consultants responsible for their own geographic and product-type territories. Our expertise and networks extend to all GxP areas, throughout all stages of development and commercial operations. We’ve successfully worked on QA searches with partners across the life science industries, including consultancies, clinical-stage biotechs, innovative medical devices companies and more.

Medical Affairs

Medical affairs bridges the gap between healthcare professionals, key opinion leaders and company stakeholders, creating an essential line of communication between scientist and doctor. Utilising their clinical and scientific knowledge, they educate on the benefits and differentiation of emerging and competing products, and how their product can save patients.

Drug Safety

This function is responsible for the continuous evaluation of medicines going through their life cycle with the aim to predict and manage the safety of drug’s profile. This includes the monitoring of safety information, and any adverse events. The person responsible for a is consistent contributing to the overall safety strategy of products.


This function covers the marketing and sales of healthcare products, software, and services. Almost any commercial role has its equivalent in healthcare, so the possible career paths are many and varied.

Technical Operations

Technical Operations spans the continuum of Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC), ensuring the transfer and safety of the final product through designing, optimising and executing manufacturing processes. At Scienta, we have specialist consultants covering all areas of the Technical Operations spectrum including and not limited to: analytical and process development, process validation, tech-transfer and scale up, project and program management, supply chain and procurement, data analytics and the overarching operational excellence and continuous improvement. Technical Operations is crucial in ensuring the development, manufacturing and commercial processes are as efficient and effective as possible.
