About Us

Global Pharmaceutical Recruiters

TriNet Pharma began its journey as a global pharmaceutical recruiter in 2009. Since then we’ve helped many of the most successful life sciences companies build their Medical Affairs, Clinical Operations, Regulatory Affairs, and Medical Communications teams.

To this day, we continue to keep our client’s concerns for efficiency, resourcefulness, spending, and compliance in mind. It’s not enough for us to find candidates with the right experience, we want to deliver exceptional leaders who are passionate about science.

Unlike other pharmaceutical recruiters, we integrate risk management capabilities, through exceedingly careful screening of candidates and the use of a database that contains vital statistics for tens of thousands of professionals, including Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs), Clinical Trial Liaisons (CTLs), Regulatory Affairs Managers, Medical Communicators, Medical Directors, and others currently working in the United States and overseas.

We’re able to assess candidates across a spectrum of past experiences and future potential. We also know the market — we’ve implemented salary benchmarking and job grading into the search process. This ensures you’ll secure the right candidates for your open positions.
