Talentmark, a specialist and executive recruitment solutions provider to the global life sciences market, announces the appointment of Joubert Guelcé to the team, to take up leadership of the Resourcing Solutions (project-based and non-retained search) team.
Joubert joins Talentmark from Proco, where he led the EMEA business, focusing on mid to senior appointments in life sciences. Prior to Proco, he spent 5 years with i-Pharm Consulting.
At Talentmark, Joubert will oversee the strategic and operational direction for the Resourcing Solutions team, which places mid to senior level professionals across Europe and the US in a range of life sciences businesses including big pharma, biotech, medtech, CRO and medical device companies. The team comprises a mix of specialists in the fields of clinical operations, medical affairs, HEOR, market access, commercial, pre-clinical and post-approval talent acquisition.
Originally from France, Joubert has enjoyed a varied and interesting career, which includes a stint as goalkeeper for Paris Saint-Germain’s junior team and several years as a professional dancer, before he discovered his talent for recruitment.
Joubert will be based in London and will report to Kafait Ali, CEO of Talentmark Ltd.
Joubert says of his appointment:
“I firmly believe that good recruitment is all about maintaining great relationships. This is precisely why I have joined Talentmark; their track record in maintaining solid relationships across many years aligns so well with my own way of working. Talentmark is turning 50 next year and I am proud to be a part of the longest-established recruiter in this sector.”
David Nolan, Talentmark’s Group Chief Executive, adds:
“We are delighted to welcome Joubert to the team and while it’s clearly a challenging period for the world’s economy, our outlook remains positive. There is a need now more than ever for flexible and scalable recruitment solutions that can be implemented quickly in times of change. With Joubert on board, we are in a strong position to continue growing and supporting our clients as they navigate the somewhat unchartered waters which lie before us all.”
