A. Agenda has a wealth of life science recruitment experience and understands that recruiting the right person can be a lengthy, expensive and sometimes frustrating process. Planning, administration, selection and interviewing can all take up valuable management time. If you are recruiting from outside your organisation, advertising will only add to your substantial costs and should the selected candidate prove to be unsuitable, the whole cycle has to be repeated. Your ideal candidate may already be on our industry leading database and our recruitment and selection service could save you a great deal of time, effort and money. Not only that, we add value by including advertising and pre-employment security screening as standard on our fees.
A. Our service can be as simple as sending you CV’s and completed application forms from suitable candidates and arranging the first interview, or we can provide a total service package including arranging medical checks and sending contracts of employment to selected candidates. At no extra cost, Agenda provides a full security clearance on all successful candidates.
