January 17, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Skills Alliance, a leading life science focused executive search and interim management firm with offices across Europe and North America have had a year of growth and brand development which is set to continue in 2013.

Established in 2005, they offer a full portfolio of bespoke solutions tailored to their client's specific requirements. The services provided range from C-suite executive search through to contract/interim solutions, benchmarking, talent mapping and an RPO offering that focuses on efficiency and speed to market. These services are designed to alleviate staffing related pressures, help drive performance within client organizations and save them money.

They have a set of values that focus on their brand and how they view themselves as a group of people; Professional, Dynamic and Efficient, Passionate and Expert.

In 2012, as the pharmaceutical market globally began to show signs of recovery and reinvestment with a particular focus on the biotechnology space, the team at Skills Alliance invested in both its technology platform and brand with a clear focus on growth and support for their loyal and expanding client base.

The team at Skills Alliance is keen to emphasize that their company will continue to focus on what led to the formation of the business; a belief in long term relationship development with their client base.

The people are at the heart of the organisation and, as such, investment has also included the acquisition of executive talent internally, allowing for the formation of a senior management team to take the company onto their next phase of growth.

Below are some of the investments made by the team to provide a superior service and make them the choice firm for the life science community.

A 12 month internal investment program developed by a leading consultancy firm and designed to allow for the re-positioning of the business at the frontline of the life science recruitment sector:

Brand Refresh - A modern, clean logo, symbolic of the company's values. This will help them position the company close to the market and reflects their values.


  • A new website, designed to reflect the evolving face of their business, enabling greater interaction with candidates and clients. The site is very user friendly and provides a great deal of advice to job seekers
  • The Database Skills Alliance have moved from a physical CRM system to a new state of the art cloud-based service with much more advanced functionality, enabling the team to work more efficiently and a more focused approach increasing the level of service their customers can expect.

  • New office locations, to add to their Swiss and UK offices, the firm now have a presence in Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic and the United States thereby providing a platform to extend their service capability and better meet clients' needs internationally. This was driven by client requests and an increase in business from North America.

    People: Having re-built the company from the ground up and acquired some of the leading talent in the global staffing market, this solid, modern foundation and infrastructure will allow Skills Alliance to present exciting career opportunities to ambitious, driven recruiters worldwide.

    Please do take some time to visit the new website and speak to the team. Why not meet them at the DIA conference in Amsterdam in March 2013? They are exhibiting at booth 716 where you will be able to find out more about their business, strategy and vision of servicing the staffing needs of the life science sector worldwide.
