Case Studies

Biotech Start-Up in Surrey

At the beginning of the 2018, Next Phase formed a new partnership with a local company based in Surrey. As a young start-up company who were due to open a brand-new facility in late Spring/early Summer, they had a variety of urgent recruitment needs, as well as requiring guidance about different recruitment models. Their new site would enable them to develop a variety of products using their unique technology, making them a very attractive prospective employer. Originally, they got in touch to ask for our assistance in finding someone to come and work within their Supply Chain and Logistics department. However, this soon expanded to their scientific departments and resulted in a rather large recruitment drive, including both permanent and contract roles. As company, we were able to support them with finding people to fill a variety of positions, including ones based within logistics as well as formulation development and quality. As they have a clear passion to continue growing their company, working with them is extremely interesting and enables us to find the right people to join their unique and innovative business.
