Life sciences is a thriving industry that encompasses a broad range of sectors. The medical technology market in the UK is the third largest in Europe; worth £7.6 billion and employing 115,000 professionals. Consequently, there is always a high demand for niche skills.
We have built a strong client base of established companies including international healthcare specialists, but we are also supporting several start-up businesses that have a vision for ground-breaking innovation to improve medical practice.
We are focused on our vibrant network of pharmaceutical and medical device professionals and our thorough understanding of the industry allows us to successfully match talented professionals with life science organisations enabling you to continue innovating.
Working closely with Olympus Surgical Technologies, a high end/high precision manufacturing facility of non-invasive medical devices, we have effectively placed specialist engineering professionals, both contract and permanent, which has had a positive and tangible impact on their growth plans.Get in touch

What our clients say
Emma Donnelly, HR Advisor, Orangebox
Over the past 3 years we have worked closely with IntaPeople to fill several technical and senior roles within Orangebox. We have consistently received an excellent service which has remained open and honest throughout. One of the key things for us is working with a recruitment agency who listen to our needs and the consultants at IntaPeople have taken the time to understand our business, to find the right people to match not only our skill requirements but also our culture. Our dedicated account manager has always been completely transparent with us, providing valuable feedback on the market conditions and our competitiveness as an employer.

We have been consistently impressed with the level of service provided by IntaPeople. Their strong technical understanding and dedicated approach has enabled us to bring the best people on board with minimum fuss.
The team are professional, proactive and keep us well-informed at every stage of the recruitment process. We therefore have no hesitation in recommending IntaPeople to others.
HR Manager, Equinix
Having provided us with a number of quality mechanical and electrical engineering professionals, lntaPeople have shown themselves to be very capable recruiters.
They recognise the true meaning of a partnership, taking time to understand your exact business requirements and ensuring that this knowledge is duly applied throughout the recruitment process.
Their professional and thorough approach has been a real breath of fresh air, and has meant the quality of candidates submitted is always extremely high.
Supporting pharmaceutical and medical device sites with technical recruitment, I’m happy to be quizzed on my knowledge of life sciences companies in South Wales. I try to use my emotional intelligence to navigate the nuances of recruitment, taking pride in simplifying what can often be a complex process.
