A global biopharmaceutical company needed to launch its first laboratory in the U.S.  With that came many challenges including the time difference with UK-based hiring managers, sourcing highly specialized talent in arguable the most competitive pharmaceutical market in the country with little to no brand recognition and the need to fill these roles within three months. 

“Advanced RPO made the impossible – happen,” was the feedback received from the UK-based VP of talent acquisition. A global biopharmaceutical company needed to launch its first laboratory in the U.S.  With that came many challenges including the time difference with UK-based hiring managers, sourcing highly specialized talent in arguably the most competitive pharmaceutical market in the country with little to no brand recognition and the need to fill these roles within three months. 

The average time-to-fill in this market for these types of positions is over 100 days.  Advanced RPO delivered the first new hires in 54 days after the project launch.  The Advanced team orchestrated many key elements to deliver successful results including:

  • Developed an employer brand and value proposition to engage candidates for highly specialized positions.
  • Educated the European-based leadership on the need for a passive recruitment strategy and strategic sourcing.
  • Utilized senior recruiters with deep bio expertise with the ability to engage and convey a winning value proposition to candidates.
  • Introduced a video interviewing solution and presented a full slate of candidates to hiring managers versus one at a time over the course of several weeks.
