Working in a Laboratory


If you’re considering a career in life sciences, getting in touch with Agenda Life Sciences would be an excellent move, because Agenda is not just a recruitment agency...

Due to our strong direct links within Research and Development in the in vivo arena, many biotechnology companies put their trust in us and ask for support in all areas of science, not only for in vivo research which we are so respected for, but also for support in pre-clinical and clinical research areas such as:





  • Chemistry – analytical, synthetic, medicinal, QC
  • Biochemistry
  • Microbiology
  • Molecular Biology
  • Toxicology
  • Genetic Toxicology
  • Pharmacology
  • Bioinformatics
  • Scientific Administration
  • Laboratory Management
  • Quality Assurance
  • Business Development and Sales

Starting out as a laboratory technician is a great way to develop as a scientist, with opportunities to progress to more senior roles, either in science itself or moving into project management and other administrative roles, which require a solid scientific background.

How can we help?

Agenda are able to place laboratory technicians in contractual roles, flexible temporary roles and permanent roles, depending on requirements. In this kind of role, you’ll be able to enhance your scientific and technical credentials, working on a wide range of interesting projects while developing broad subject expertise and new ways of working, as well as new skills.

Agenda will also devote time matching people with more senior roles across all levels and all life sciences, as we understand how important it is to find the right fit within a company, allowing us to develop in the right direction.

Why Agenda?

Agenda Life Sciences fully supports the research community by providing services aimed at supporting research. The company believes that while animal research does make a valuable contribution to science, animals should be treated with dignity and respect at all times.

Bear in mind when applying for life science roles in all areas of science that we support the reduction, refinement and replacement of the use of animals in research. Animal welfare is our priority but so too is the welfare of those working with animals, those working in laboratories and the welfare of the life science sector itself.
