Based primarily in the US, the client merged with a large European software provider end of 2019. After being successfully integrated, the company decided to invest more in their Life Sciences business with a focus on expanding operations in Europe.
To successfully make that shift to a regionalized European Life Science business, the company was faced with the following challenges:
- A lack of European personnel and expertise to service new client base
- European clients were primarily served by the US team, creating inefficiencies
- Needed specialized Life Sciences talent with an additional understanding of IT solutions
The client determined they required the assistance of a staffing provider to place scarce, local talent with a background in both life sciences and IT on a European level.
Due to their recruiting capabilities and regional presence, the client partnered with Planet Pharma to facilitate their urgent staffing needs. Planet Pharma was able to source and place key perm positions within the client’s organization, including sales and pre-sales, product specialists, and software engineers to better service their European clients.
Planet Pharma was able to successfully identify and place qualified consultants with expertise in both life sciences and IT. Such personnel were the foundation to building a more localized and targeted team, growing European operations. Planet Pharma has become a key partner since this initial engagement, now placing resources with expertise in Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), Clinical Trial Management Systems, and Solution Consulting to support the client’s evolving business.
