Our Suite of Solutions



We understand the marketplace and critical skill sets that are in high demand. We connect talent to openings based on factors such as therapeutic area, experience, communication style, and personality. We leverage proprietary technology and databases to identify the key individuals that you need in the Clinical, Scientific and Technology areas.

Direct Hire

Our approach enables our clients to reduce HR costs and focus on what’s most important: your business. Through our direct hire process, we place a new employee immediately within your organization for a competitive one-time fee based upon the employee’s first-year salary. Should problems arise, we replace the employee at no cost during the guaranteed time period.


While it’s about the people, finding the right fit can be difficult. Planet Pharma offers contract-to-hire staffing services to determine if an employee is a perfect fit for the position by allowing our clients to observe the employee on the job. Once the contract period is complete, you can hire the employee on a permanent basis with your organization.

Our workforce programs and strategies are customized to help you win talent and market share. With our solutions, you can easily evolve in a dynamic marketplace.

Payroll Support

Processing payroll is complicated. It’s likely to be your company’s largest expense. There are many factors to consider such as insurance, retirement contributions, and tax withholdings, to name a few. When dealing with multiple types of employment, many firms outsource their efforts to avoid complication. We help relieve the payroll burden with our proprietary software solutions.

Executive Search

Our sister company, PPG Advisory Partners, offers unparalleled ability in search execution and talent builds. Working in partnership with Life Sciences organizations directly, and supporting VC firms' portfolio companies, PPG Advisory Partners provides the objective strategy needed to build-out your leadership team. We focus on C-level and VP-level roles, expediting your hiring process, and identifying the best executives for your organization.



Pharmaceuticals is a rapidly evolving industry. We understand market intricacies and connect top talent with top pharmaceutical jobs. By matching candidates with firms that align with their skill-sets, ability, and culture, our clients find and retain the ideal talent to drive business goals.


The biotech industry is quickly expanding and is a highly competitive job market for professionals. It’s difficult for organizations to hire and retain candidates, especially when the biotech industry hiring process is the longest in the job market. We expedite the hiring process and connect the industry’s finest swiftly and effectively.

Medical Device

We are unique in the medical device recruitment industry. We give our clients and candidates a unique blend of personalized attention and the resources of being a globally connected recruiter. Expediting the hiring process with an essential personal touch is our expertise. People aren’t numbers to us.

Diagnostic Device

While industry firms continue to flourish, they historically faced difficulty recruiting in a competitive job market. We utilize our industry connections to strike a balance between financial incentive, career advancement, and job fulfillment for our candidates. Likewise, our industry clients and partners appreciate our extensive capabilities for producing exceptional candidates.

Contract Research Organizations

The contract research process is undoubtedly tricky. We make it simple for our clients and produce a streamlined experience from the beginning of a clinical trial to managing a straightforward contract research organization hiring process.

Contract Manufacturing Organizations

It’s important to work with a recruiting partner that has an understanding of the manufacturing industry's needs and disciplines. Additionally, a recruiting partner should have a strong network, vetting process, and efficient recruitment operation. Candidates and manufacturing corporations deserve nothing less. That’s where we come in.
