Meet Budget and Staffing Challenges Head-On

A life sciences company seeking to form a medical affairs team in a new geographic location or a company establishing its foundation may need a recruiting agency to locate medical affairs talent.

There are several reasons for this need, including:

  • Lack of internal resources. A new organization may not have the internal resources or expertise to conduct a comprehensive search for medical affairs professionals. They also lack access to a large pool of pre-qualified candidates with the required therapeutic and clinical expertise and work experience. A niche medical affairs staffing agency can hit the ground running in the search for staff.
  • Time constraints. Recruiting medical affairs staff can be time-consuming, especially when an organization is in the early stages of development. Management and leadership do not have the extra time to search for candidates who must meet specific criteria (e.g., therapeutic area expertise, years of clinical experience, relationships with key opinion leaders, etc.). Beyond searching for candidates, the appropriate medical affairs recruitment agency can screen, interview, and select the best candidates to present to a hiring manager.
  • Industry knowledge. Human resources may not have the expertise to staff a medical affairs department. A recruiting agency specializing in finding and placing medical affairs talent in life sciences organizations will have in-depth knowledge of the medical affairs function, including the skillsets and the experience required for different positions. This knowledge is invaluable when identifying the most suitable candidates for a role.
  • Confidentiality. A nascent life sciences organization may prefer to keep the recruitment process private, especially if it is still forming or recruiting for an executive or senior leadership role. A medical affairs recruitment agency can maintain confidentiality and provide a buffer between the company and candidates.
  • Budget. Budget constraints can be a significant challenge for novel life sciences organizations. The development and commercialization of new therapeutics require considerable investment. Integrating a team of scientists, researchers, and business professionals is a necessary expenditure. However, attracting and retaining top talent is challenging when there are budget constraints. The inability to pay competitive salaries and provide robust benefits packages can make hiring and keeping people difficult. When you choose a medical affairs recruitment agency, ask if they’ll help you finesse your hiring strategy at no cost.
