A job with a purpose: Experienced Recruitment Consultant at Panda!

You have recruitment experience, but you’re clouded with a big desire to learn more, grow further and to explore the opportunities available for someone with your knowledge? Like most of our colleagues you may have never considered the Life Sciences Sector. Maybe you did? Interestingly, whether you know it or not, the Life Sciences Sector has already had an enormous influence on your life and the people you are closest to.

The Life Sciences sector is ranked as one of the most innovative sectors in the world. So, imagine playing a part in a life changing industry supporting organisations that develop new treatments, and produce innovative cutting-edge technology with the objective to enhance the way we live. Our clients range from promising innovative growth companies to some of the biggest & most exciting organisations in the world.

Hang on before we go any further… We have some breaking news!

As part of the Brexit, the European Medicines Agency is moving to Amsterdam in March 2019. The agency alone will create 900 jobs and in response to this, 20 global Life Sciences companies plan a move to Amsterdam to set up a base for their operations. Yes, you heard it! This already thriving industry is about to explode. The demands for skills will increase significantly, which will present us with a fantastic opportunity.

What does this mean for Panda?

We already had ambitious plans for growth and as a step forward in 2019 Panda appointed a well-grounded, experienced Chairman who was previously responsible for chairing a successful recruitment company which was acquired for more than €100m. Our ambitious plans for growth + ‘EMA move to Amsterdam’ puts Panda International and YOU in the right place at the right time to take advantage of this unique opportunity. Why we’re capable? Panda is listed as a top supplier with the biggest names in the Benelux. The Panda brand is respected by its clients and candidates, so our key objective is to scale-up BUT at the same time, maintain the same level of experience to our customers which is based on Quality, Delivery and Collaboration.

As a people led business, there’s no way we could be a respected brand if Panda International wasn’t a great and purposeful place to work.

The Role:

  • Working the entire recruitment cycle: a blend of business development, sales and headhunting. 
  • Pitching potential new clients on utilising Panda International. 
  • Fulfilling your clients’ hiring needs by recruiting the best candidates for specialised roles. 
  • Meet with high-level clients and candidates face-to-face. 
  • Developing and building your own business and brand within our company. 

Who are you?

  • You don’t need a Life Sciences background in recruitment because we teach you everything you need to know and guide you in mapping your market.
  • You have a Bachelor or Master’s degree.
  • You are driven & ambitious with a proven ability in commercial recruitment.
  • You are self-motivated with ability to use initiative; a “can do” attitude.
  • You can bring a happy vibe to the office!
