Helping Secure Business-Critical Talent.

The talent behind life-saving medicines and devices. 

3D printing. Gene editing. Artificial intelligence. Big data. New technologies are radically transforming the way that we treat patients and cure diseases on earth and in space; fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds. There has never been a more exciting time to work in life sciences.

As with any change, disruption brings ample opportunity for reward, and risk. Home to many global powerhouses in pharmaceuticals, medical devices and biotech, Switzerland is a major employer in the life sciences sector and the second largest exporter of packaged medicine in the world, with about 11% of the global total according to the Observatory of Economic Complexity. Swiss life sciences organisations will need to secure the right people to stay ahead of new players entering the market.

EPM Scientific are proud to be a leading specialist recruiter in life sciences. Founded in 2012, we help clients solve the number one challenge: talent. Today, we provide permanent, contract and multi-hire recruitment solutions to support the whole product life-cycle from research and development through to market launch and pharmacovigilance.
