Mid-sized biotech, consultant clinical data management solution

Case study

The overview

Our partner, a mid-size biotech company, had received FDA approval for their groundbreaking first-in-class drug, designed to treat a rare muscle disease. Subsequently, following substantial funding and the development of a highly promising pipeline, they embarked on an expansion journey, particularly within their Biometrics division.

The challenge

The company was looking to hire seasoned Lead Clinical Data Managers. They were looking for a deep understanding of SDTM QC and Pinnacle 21, which limited the talent pool of suitable candidates. Furthermore, given the ongoing pursuit of a database lock, filling these positions became an imperative and time-sensitive task.

The solution

We noticed that a substantial number of highly qualified candidates were receptive to the concept of working as contractors in the UK. As our partner is headquartered in Belgium and initially lacked a UK entity, this posed challenges for candidate payroll. We successfully provided a contracting and payroll solution, allowing them to access the extensive pool of highly qualified candidates in the UK.

The outcome

• We were able to place and help payroll 8 UK based Contract Data Managers

• First 6 hires took between 9-28 days from brief taken to placements and there was a 100% acceptance rate

• All contractors have been offered extension after initial contract term of 12 months
