Leading vaccine company,
multiple US hires

Case study

The overview

A leading vaccine company required rapid growth in response to global Covid-19 pandemic.

The challenge

A leading US based vaccine biotech company was urgently working to establish a Covid-19 vaccine in response to the global pandemic that began in March 2020. This involved the growth of the company across all areas of R&D. We had a historical relationship with this organisation, but with the onset of the pandemic, they connected with a senior member of our New York office to help oversee a series of hires from VP level down.

The solution

We deployed specialist dedicated delivery teams based on the East Coast, with a single point of contact working alongside the existing TA team to supplement the extra hiring demand. We acted as an extension to the TA team, creating candidate trackers, scheduling interviews and keeping a close relationship with key stakeholders.

The outcome

Over the course of 6 months, we made around 30 hires, building out teams in the following functions: clinical development and operations, drug safety, scientific, manufacturing, analytical development and drug substance.

We continue to work closely with our partner, with more hires in the pipeline for late 2020 and 2021.
