As a global pharmaceutical recruitment consultancy, we have ambitious growth plans of 30% year on year. This will be achieved not only by hiring exceptional candidates, but also through networking and attending as many conferences as possible.

Attending conferences means that we can put a face to a name with our clients, and interact with them on a personal basis. It also gives us a chance to secure exclusive vacancies which we can then inform prospective candidates about upon our return.

Conferences mean multiple points of contact in a short space of time, which is way more productive for us as a business. Employees at Barrington James love to travel, so why not combine that and send our consultants, managers and directors overseas to experience a conference themselves?

With our 7 offices in Gatwick, Malaysia, Singapore, New York, North Carolina, Frankfurt and Switzerland we are extremely lucky that they are all located close to an airport, which makes travelling to conferences easier and more accessible for us.

We also know that it is essential to attend as many conferences as possible to build brand recognition. We have attended nearly 50 conferences every year for the last five years. It wouldn’t be beneficial for the business if we chose to skimp out on these, as consistency is key.

There are also times when we will be the only pharma recruiter exhibiting, so it’s important to make the most of every opportunity.

To top a conference off in true Barrington James style, we love to host our own social networking event, which is the perfect environment out of hours for us to get to know our clients and candidates on a more personal level, and build on that relationship.

If you’re attending one of the many life science conferences this year, be sure to look out for the girls and guys dressed in red ties.
