Recruitment Consultant (Permanent) | Mid-Senior level  


Panda International is looking for several highly ambitious, driven recruitment consultants who are striving to further their career with the support of a forward-thinking company, offering high-level recruitment expertise in a robust, lucrative, rapidly expanding global sector.   

Panda International has a lot on offer for an experienced Recruitment Consultant who is ready to make a difference and relishes the idea of being supported by a well-established, profitable business. Panda International achieved a highly profitable 2021, witnessing a way above industry standard YOY growth, and is on the path to breaking many more records in 2022.  This really is a great opportunity for anyone looking to catapult their career in a growth company with ambitious sights, as it presents huge career potential.  

Having built a strong recruitment brand offering permanent and interim solutions in the European Life Sciences, we are taking full advantage of this thriving market. Our vast portfolio of clients ranges from the big biotech companies involved in the race to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine, to emerging biotech and medical technology companies busy with creating some of the world’s latest and greatest innovations.  

The Life Sciences sector is currently in the global spotlight and is receiving investments on a scale never seen before.  The investment curve is expected to keep rising for years to come as the innovations continue to advance towards fighting illnesses, cancers, and other rare diseases.  This is truly a great sector to be involve in and the timing could not be any better! The question is, are you ready to get involved? 



Responsibilities of the Recruitment Consultant 

As an experienced recruiter you will be given a niche within the sector to work where you can already take advantage of the existing relationships built within the Panda International client base. You will essentially map out your market to identify ideal prospective clients and placeable candidates, build your network on both sides and win and develop business in Life Sciences companies where you can place the candidates you represent.  Using your existing knowledge as a recruiter and with the support and guidance you need for the business, you will hold yourself accountable for achieving the revenue targets set.  In order to source the best candidates on the market you will be expected to go beyond the standard routes and actively headhunt.  The Panda proposition to clients is to deliver good candidates, very quickly.  We do the latter by investing our time in the clients willing to enter an exclusive partnership where you can build on a longer-term partnership.
