ADVERTORIAL | Brothers Chris and Andy Anderson from Evolve share what their business has to offer in a changing pharma market to meet industry’s recruitment needs.
It seems hard to believe that almost 13 years have passed since we opened the doors to Evolve in October 2007. We started the business with the focus of becoming a leading UK recruitment and CSO provider within the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare sectors.
Over the past few years working in Evolve; we’ve seen changes within our market. Initially, our growth was focused mainly within the sales and marketing sectors. Like all companies and markets, we’ve had to adapt our model in line with industry fluctuations to aid the continued success of the business.
“Working on international vacancies has really broadened our horizons and allowed us to support long-standing and new clients with a greater breadth of talent for their businesses”
Evolving with pharma
The last three years in particular have been an exciting challenge. We’ve developed our model and expanded to work in sectors that we hadn’t covered previously, driven by both market change and demand from our established client base. A substantial addition to our UK business, was the move to working internationally, particularly across Europe and the US. Whilst initially unknown territory for the business; working on international vacancies has really broadened our horizons and allowed us to support long-standing and new clients with a greater breadth of talent for their businesses.
Working with an evolving NHS
We’re all aware of how the NHS has changed and how Pharma has needed to adapt commercial models in line with these changes. Similarly, as a specialist recruiter and CSO provider, we have done the same. Whereas previously our specialities were focused around Key Account Management, Market Access and Sales Management; the rise of more clinically-focused positions within the market has led us to also diversify into areas such as Medical, Regulatory, Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR), Clinical, Pharmacy and Medical Engineering. Over the last two to three years, we’ve seen significant growth for our business in these sectors and have developed trust and respect with our clients, both by resourcing the best talent as a recruitment supplier and delivering highly successful projects as a CSO.
Another addition to our service portfolio was the establishment of our Executive Search function. Moving into new sectors of the market led to a rise in senior management and C-Suite level vacancies for the business. We felt the requirement was there to dedicate a specialist team of highly-experienced recruiters to partner with our candidates and clients to support demand at this level.
“We’re really pleased to be in the position to help support the growth and change for our customers”
Evolving for you
In conclusion, we feel that there is a healthy future for the industry and we’re really pleased to be in the position to help support the growth and change for our customers. We’re sure there will always be a plethora of new unforeseen challenges ahead and our business is in a strong position to adapt to any changes and move with the times. Establishing long-term partnerships with our clients and candidates, to deliver first-class customer service, will always be our number one priority and remains at the core of all we’re able to offer as a business.
