Opportunity

A Life Sciences company focused on an immunotherapy for cancer (specifically solid tumors) was looking to partner with a recruiting expert that would manage talent  acquisition of PhD bench scientists with very specific high throughput technology experience. The problem was the supply of qualified solid tumor researchers with expertise in ddPCR (droplet digital PCR). Per GTS market research, the supply of this type of candidates was approximately 100-150 individuals nationally. Utilizing internal resources to source, screen, and select personnel was taking far too much time and energy away from the company’s core operating goal, developing innovative approaches to saving lives. The company needed a partner with extensive industry knowledge and could take the pressure of finding a high-level, quality candidate that met their needs – they hired GTS Scientific.

Despite only 100-150 people nationally possessing the requiring the skillset, GTS Scientific fulfilled the clients’s need with a staff scientist ready to make a career move.

Solution

GTS Scientific worked with the company to minimize the time spent on the recruitment process and allowed the company to stay focused on their core business. Following a decision maker intake call (DMIC) to identify the necessary requirements, the experienced team at GTS Scientific was able to clarify the company’s exact needs and the precise qualifications required of a candidate. GTS Scientific took over from there: locating, contacting, interviewing, and short-listing. The GTS recruitment team’s existing knowledge of the industry and strong relationships with qualified scientists who possessed ddPCR skills specifically on t-cells (TCR and/or CAR-T) allowed GTS to react quickly to the company’s specific hiring requirements.

Results

The client interviewed 2 of 3 candidates GTS Scientific presented, of which they offered the position to one. GTS Scientific saved the company countless hours of valuable time that they would have typically spent sourcing and screening by providing them a shortlist of 3 qualified candidates to interview.
