Case Study:

Type: Medical Affairs, Mid-Sized Pharmaceutical Company.

Challenges: Multiple positions across the U.S. were in need of top medical affairs professionals, and the client was not finding the caliber of candidates required for the roles. We were engaged to identify experienced candidates with therapeutic area expertise to support critical hiring initiatives for national expansion of the medical affairs team.

Solution: We partnered with the hiring executives to gather and understand the departmental initiatives, geographic territories of focus, and the medical expertise that would be best suited to collaborate with medical professionals and study clinics while educating customers on the overall products they provide. By truly partnering with our client, we were able to set the recruitment strategy and search approach in order to meet their hiring needs by the product orientation launch and training dates.

Our direct hire recruitment strategy is tailored for your unique talent needs and company culture.

Case Study:

Type: Regulatory Submissions Medical Writing, Small Biotech Company.

Challenges: The client was understaffed to support regulatory submission documents and critical timelines.

Solution: We provided a team of expert writing professionals to write ISS/ISEs, Pre-Clinical and Clinical Modules along with Quality Checks for submission readiness to meet tight timelines within a 3 month period. The client has since successfully submitted all required regulatory documents for the filing and has been receiving acceptable reviews by the FDA. Our team of expert writers are continuously on standby to add additional support or provide agency responses to questions/inquiries.
