Our client, a cell therapy company focused on cancer immunotherapy products, was looking to create a 2nd shift at their manufacturing facility in Philadelphia. Another client in Maryland, supporting a genetic medicine company with commercial manufacturing, had to ramp headcount due to a recent FDA accelerated approval. Both organizations required candidates with previous aseptic upstream gmp manufacturing experience (at least 2-4 years).
2nd Shift Upstream Manufacturing Specialist II
GTS Scientific was on a retained (RPO) contract to increase the 2nd shift headcount by at least 10 employees. The GTS account manager connected with the hiring manager to discuss the essential requirements for the role and shift requirements, while learning more about the company culture/direction of the organization. The client’s internal talent acquisition specialist had recently accepted a role with another organization, so GTS was operating as the entire talent acquisition team (advertising, updating internal HRIS & ATS systems, sourcing, screening, selection of candidates and presentation of shortlisted profiles to hiring managers). GTS presented 22 qualified candidates, of which 12 received offers, 10 of which were accepted. The sourcing efforts also led to the identification of a GMP Trainer who joined the team to ensure consistency between shifts.
Multiple Shift Upstream Manufacturing Specialist III & Supervisors
GTS Scientific was exclusively chosen to run point with hiring multiple shift upstream manufacturing specialist III and supervisors for a growing CDMO in Maryland, after their team had an FDA approval come through creating the need to build out a new manufacturing team to support the project. After meeting with the HR and hiring team to qualify the role and discuss the shifts/ positions needed, the GTS team began outbound sourcing efforts. GTS presented 15 candidates all of which received interviews, 10 of those candidates received offers, 7 of which accepted.
