Candidate's Testimonial

“It was a pleasure”

​Gabby was really helpful answering queries I had promptly. She also let me know who to reach out to and followed up with communication. The conversation was very easy to discuss next steps and it was a pleasure.

“I was super impressed with his positive attitude and work ethic”

​Oli Baylis was really supportive and helpful throughout the entire recruitment process. He listened to the job requirements I was looking for and what type of line of work I enjoyed. If I had any queries or concerns he was quick to help out and address it. I was super impressed with his positive attitude and work ethic he had. I am more than happy to recommend Oli and comeback to Next Phase Recruitment for my future job search.

“"Network access & unique understanding"”

Next Phase were instrumental in our early fundraising efforts. Steve was able to unlock the doors of many investors with a specific interest in early stage gene therapy biotechs that would have otherwise been cold and unknown to us. In parallel, he has attracted our industry leading “raise team”, consisting of some of the most reputable advanced therapy executives with experience within the ATMP space. Thanks to Steve's network access and unique understanding of this space, we were able to significantly accelerate the development of our business to help improve the quality of life for those affected by rare diseases.
