We're Hiring No Border

Do you want to join a company that is just about to take off...?


There will be two groups of life science recruiters in 3 years’ time: those who joined Next Phase and those who wish they had joined Next Phase.

Do you ever sit in the office and wonder what it would be like to have joined a highly successful recruitment company from the start? An opportunity where you can shape your own career, build a team or create a new function, set up international offices, innovate & harness technology, be surrounded by like-minded & driven people and be given the space to fulfil your potential...?

At Next Phase we are embarking on a period of rapid growth and are looking for the new talent that will light a fire under this great company.

Next Phase is looking for experienced life science recruiters to join our established team. Next Phase has built a great platform within the life science industry over the past 15 years, establishing itself as a specialist within the Cell & Gene, Biotech, Pharma and Rare Disease sectors. Now, following the arrival of our new CEO Jake Thomas (who has previously grown a life science company across UK, Europe, Australia and US), and our Chairman Miles Hunt (who has a significant portfolio of international recruitment businesses), there is an opportunity to be a part of something genuinely special. We have a very strong foundation and are going to grow to set the standard for life science recruitment internationally.

We are looking for recruiters who are self-driven, hungry to win new business, looking to innovate and deliver unique value to their clients and candidates. We truly believe in the ‘person first’ mantra at Next Phase and know that if we give the support and space to our team to work in their own way, the results they can achieve our incredible.

At Next Phase we believe in recognising success, with rewards and perks including:

  • Commission up to 50%
