Are you a life science graduate looking for an opportunity to stay within science but within a business environment?
Would you like to have an overview of business in the life science market without having to get into detailed science?
Having completed your science degree why not use it in a role where you can learn business skills?
As recruiter for Seltek in the life science market, you will be working with several companies to help them to build their commercial teams. We recruit for sales, marketing, technical specialists and service engineers at all levels from graduate to director across Europe.
We are a small team of 7 recruiters working in niche parts of the scientific and healthcare markets where we are the specialists. We have regular incentives to earn extra bonuses, meals out, extra days holiday!
You will be joining us to support pre-existing, long term clients, many of which are the global market leaders. But we also support start-up companies with their first commercial hires who will be building their brand and product awareness. This means that we are constantly in touch with new companies in the market and developing awareness of how we can support them. We are very consultative, offering support to our clients and candidates throughout recruitment processes. We develop strong relationships and work to understand both clients and candidates so that we can help them by making the best possible match. The additional support we offer is varied but includes salary advice to employers, reference checking and support with CVs and interviews for candidates.
You will be sourcing candidates using a variety of methods including searches on our extensive database, talking to people in the market for referrals, using LinkedIn and sometimes job boards. You will need to be thorough and methodical to get all routes covered effectively. The candidates who you will be supporting are used to engaging their customers on a day to day basis so you will find them to be fun, friendly and engaging.

Onwards from there we will be supporting you continuously day to day, and we have an excellent weekly training programme at Seltek. We offer training both in house and on external courses.
This is a rewarding career if you enjoy the feeling of completing tasks regularly, are motivated by targets and enjoy communicating with a variety of people. If you would like to stick close to science without having to discuss it in detail or ever pick up a pipette again, then this is a great way of viewing the life science market from above from a business perspective. You will also enjoy the feeling of having a positive impact on both the success of your clients and the careers of your candidates.
