Barrington James is a global and award-winning Life Science & Pharmaceutical recruitment firm, supporting clients across the entire drug development process in sourcing rare and top quality candidates.

Having recently promoted a number of consultants, Barrington James have opportunities for consultants to join either our Perm or Contract divisions, working a niche vertical of the Life Science market across Europe. You will be responsible for hiring Senior candidates into highly sought after positions, and delivering on projects which require senior and niche advisors for cutting-edge Pharmaceutical trials. This is a particularly fast-paced and entrepreneurial function which rewards hard-work with fees unseen elsewhere in the recruitment industry.

Matthew Tucker and Nick Livings, Directors of Contracts & Perm, are highly experienced in 360 recruitment and have developed numerous £500k+ billers, managers, directors, and award-winners

between them. They both directly oversee the initial mentoring of new starters into their team, providing you with 1-to-1 training and on-the-job coaching.

With 140+ consultants worldwide working tirelessly to support clients in a hugely business-critical period in Pharma & Life Sciences, Covid-19 has not slowed us down. Since Jan 2020, we have consistently grown our global divisions and have broken billing records across multiple teams.

Join a company that has proven its ability to not just withstand, but thrive, in even the most challenging of times.
