Our client had recently received $10M in seed funding and was focused on building out their team in their wet lab in Philadelphia. The organization felt they needed an R&D Scientist with expertise using CRISPR to edit t cells, Flow Cytometry, and received a PhD in a related discipline.
Tasked with aggressive growth plans from their investors and Board of directors, our client felt pressure to find the right candidate, and find them quickly.
GTS Scientific has specialized in Life Sciences recruitment for the last 10 years, and the last six have been focused in the advanced therapeutic and cell and gene therapy world. GTS has a deep candidate pool in the Philadelphia area, and utilizing our network and extensive candidate pool, we were able to reach and present 4 qualified, local candidates in the first 2 weeks of working on the search.
The team at GTS helped the client manage the interview process with all candidates, from scheduling, preparation, facilitation of feedback, and finally helping to facilitate an offer that was accepted within a day of the candidate receiving it.
This position was opened at the end of February and the client had been presented with 4 candidates to interview, to select the best fit from. One of these candidates received and accepted an offer by Mid-March.
