Team expansion reflects success of agile recruitment model throughout the past year.

RBW Consulting’s US business has grown rapidly over the last year as life science companies navigated the ongoing business uncertainty. RBW’s agile service offering has enabled the team to adapt to the rapidly changing recruitment landscape.

“We will continue to evolve to ensure we are constantly delivering on our client promise to bring the innovation, enthusiasm and professionalism that powers the industry.”
Alongside Bernardo and Greene, RBW has also appointed two functional experts: Dan Sidell in biometrics and Josh Jess in pharmacovigilance and drug safety. Kade Kramer also joins the cross functional team. These team members will be working to ensure RBW continues to deliver the highly specialised expertise required in these niche areas, which are currently facing a highly competitive market to hire good people for critical roles.
The company is now setting a course for further success in the US, with plans to grow in other developing life sciences industry hubs in the region. These areas are the home to the ambitious growth companies which RBW partners with, offering a long-term approach to recruitment centred on strategic business goals.
Having first launched into the US market in Boston, during 2017, RBW opened a second office in Raleigh, NC in 2020.
