Job Description

Managing Consultant - Contract Life Science

Job Description

Would you like to take on a role that allows you to take ownership of your work, be creative in your approach and get rewarded for your contribution and commitment? Are you hungry and ambitious for more success and responsibility?

In your new role as a Managing Consultant working with us, you can expect to be challenged, as we will give you as much responsibility as you can handle. We're looking for a confident, talented, seasoned leader to own our contract, white collar engineering team who form part of our life sciences division. We want you to bring your unique set of skills and experience to a company where you can reach your true potential.

About the role

Life Sciences isn't just white coats and chemistry. You can't manufacture a drug, vaccine or medical device without the premises and plant/equipment to do it, in essence - Engineering. Our contract team focus on providing Project Engineers/Project Managers, Validation, Commissioning & Qualification, Process and Quality professionals amongst other roles, who are heavily involved in the manufacturing facilities themselves rather than the products that are created within them.

This is very much white collar recruitment where rates generally start from £45.00 per hour and contract lengths on average 6-12 months. It’s certainly not high churn low margin, in fact very much the opposite.

From full scale, full lifecycle projects to plant/production expansions driven by capital investment, projects values can range from £10k to £200m+. Our footprint is very much within the UK, however through various clients we are also supplying into Ireland and parts of Europe such as Germany and Sweden.

Our client portfolio ranges from the large multi-national corporations to the SME’s, Start-up businesses and engineering contractors.

Essential Skills

The successor will have experience working as a consultant with management experience and recognised expertise and seasoned knowledge in own discipline and sector. You will have previously been a high performing Consultant with a strong desire for individual and team excellence.

If you have Life Science/Engineering experience we would be keen to speak with you.

A scientific/engineering degree would be beneficial but not essential.
