Lorien partners with international life sciences recruitment expert SRG for new digital health recruitment proposition
Lorien, a global technology recruitment specialist, has partnered with global market leading life sciences recruitment expert SRG to create a new, all-encompassing digital health recruitment solution. The new proposition will enable those working in digital health to harness sector expertise across both life sciences and technology with greater simplicity and flexibility, enabling fast-growing business to scale up.
Digital healthcare has been transformed during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Association of British HealthTech Industries, healthtech is now the largest employer in the broader life sciences sector, employing 131,800 people across 4,060 companies.
Covering SRG and Lorien’s client and candidate bases across the UK, Europe and North America, the new STEM proposition will offer tailored recruitment models, including expertise in technical and executive search, statement of work, employer branding and candidate marketing and attraction, as well as traditional recruitment.
Lorien and SRG are both part of the Impellam Group – the sixth largest managed service provider worldwide. This collaboration marks the latest in a series of moves by the recruitment giant to enhance its STEM portfolio, including the recent appointment of Kelly Morton as STEM CEO.
“Talent acquisition in the STEM industry has never been more competitive or exciting,” Morton said. “Traditional lines between sectors like engineering, life sciences and technology have become blurred as the market has matured with new breakthroughs. This is heating up demand in an already fast-growing market. Understanding this need to tap into expertise and strong networks, while having the simplicity and scale to access full spectrum STEM talent, is what inspired us to create this new proposition. Our brands meet at the intersection of their expertise in digital and life sciences, creating an easy “one touch” solution for our clients in this space.”
