JCW’s life sciences division becomes Catalyst Life Sciences.

JCW’s Life sciences division has branched out of JCW and become Catalyst Life Sciences.  

JCW began recruiting in the Life Sciences industry in 2012 and after six years of success in the life sciences market, the team has branched out as an independent recruitment business under the JCW Group. Catalyst Life Sciences will now serve as a dedicated life sciences recruitment company focusing exclusively on the technical and regulatory market.

Catalyst Life Sciences will now focus on the following job sectors within the life sciences industry:

  • Quality & Validation
  • Pharmacovigilance & Drug Safety
  • Regulatory Affairs
  • Medical Affairs & Medical Information
  • Clinical Trials

They intend to grow with the same mission and values of the JCW group, which is to be trusted by talent in their markets for client and candidate service. 

The move means a better service for Catalyst’s clients and candidates and senior management believe service users will benefit most from the more personal touch of working with a smaller business and Catalyst’s very niche focus. With the entire business working exclusively on the technical and regulatory sector within life sciences, people who use Catalyst should expect one of the most bespoke services available to them in the market.

Our Catalyst Life Sciences Director, Luis Haddow said:

“Here at Catalyst, we take the time to carefully understand our client’s needs and how they like to be portrayed to the market and we are slowly being recognised as a go-to agency by a number of leading, innovative companies. By rebranding, we now have our own logo, website and our own identity and it allows us to go from being the best-kept secret in Life Science recruitment to being recognised by the whole industry, candidates and clients alike. It’s an exciting time for us and a huge step towards our long-term ambition of solidifying ourselves as a market leading recruitment firm.”

JCW has experienced one of the steepest growth curves in its history by becoming a parent company to Catalyst Life Sciences and Cybernetic Search in the past year.
