Life Sciences & Health Care


Life Sciences and Health Care are exciting areas not only for executive search and the industry themselves, but for every individual because of the potential impact on our health and wellbeing.

Life Sciences include a broad field of disciplines that relates to living organisms and biomedicine. Some of the largest industries that are included in our definition of Life Sciences for executive search are:

  • pharmaceuticals
  • biopharmaceuticals
  • medical devices
  • ecology
  • agro technology

Health Care includes a range of sectors such as:

  • Hospitals and health services
  • Government health departments
  • Specialist and corporate medical groups
  • Healthcare academia
  • Biomedical research institutes
  • Primary, aged and community care

Current Climate:
The health and agricultural sciences sectors have been dominated by several factors including:

    1. The rationalization of these industry sectors through mergers and acquisitions.
    2. The competitive search for new products.
    3. The growing industries of bioinformatics in genetics and proteomics.
    4. The proliferation of small enterprises started by inventors with an interesting product and strong desire to commercialize the product.
    5. The growth of government regulation and global standardization of government controls.
    6. An increasingly globally mobile workforce across all job levels and industry sectors

      Thus, the Life Sciences and Health Care sector is highly complex with much specialization, high growth potential, and an interesting combination and interrelationship of large international players and local entrepreneurs. All these factors are good for executive firms that are prepared to develop a focus and expertise in some of these industries.
