CASE STUDY: Regulatory Affairs Associate Director

In the midst of COVID, this was an important role for my client and we used our network of contacts to find the right candidate.

Client background

Our client is a leading clinical research organisation with various offices around the UK and Europe. We had recently recruited a graduate and business development role for them when we were tasked with finding them a new regulatory affairs associate director. 

The requirement

They were after a senior regulatory affairs professional with experience of cell and gene therapy and also someone who had worked for a consultancy before. 

The challenge

The client was encountering challenges in their recruitment search as they could not find anyone with the right level of cell and gene experience or someone used to working for a CRO. COVID was also proving a challenge as the market was unstable at the time with lots of uncertainty around. 

Our solution

I was asked if I could help them and offer my advice. I explained that remote working would be a huge help and also gave advice on salary expectations as well. This was a headhunting vacancy and relied on me contacting my network and looking for potential candidates with the correct experience but who were not necessarily looking as the active market had been exhausted. 

The outcome

We found a suitable candidate who was not actively looking but was still open to an initial discussion where I explained the role in more detail to him and he was keen to progress. He was successful in interview and after a bit of negotiating with my assistance, he started not long after and has since been promoted and is thriving in his role.
