Scope of work
Our partner, a global biopharma, was expanding their team in APAC and needed to hire a Clinical Project Manager in South Korea. We have a long-standing relationship with this company in the APAC region, having already worked with them across a multitude of countries.
After commencing the search, we contacted a very senior, director level candidate, who was looking for a new opportunity as her current role had limited studies available due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which was ongoing at the time. She was more qualified than our partner had initially requested, however she had a very strong profile and due to our deep understanding of the business, we identified that she could be a key strategic hire for their South Korean operations. She was also one of the most senior profiles in the South Korean market and was highly sought after by a previous manager. Due to the hierarchical nature of South Korean society, this became a tricky process to navigate for all parties, however she was impressed by our partner and their platform and was firm in her decision to be put forward.
