Animal Health & Nutrition

Animal Nutrition & Health team covers assignments globally as well as locally. Our focus is on recruiting mission-critical executive, leadership, mid-management and specialised technical appointments for the industry, covering the below product and species segments:

  • Animal Nutrition – feed ingredients & additives, feed premixes, specialty solutions, flavours and allied industry sectors for all species including aquatic nutrition
  • Animal Health – veterinary pharmaceuticals, vaccines, pharmaceutical ingredients, nutraceuticals, biotechnology and allied industry sectors for all species including aquatic health

Our in-house consultants and research team are multi-lingual and possesses full fluency in more than 15 languages, giving us a true advantage on covering roles which require internationally minded professionals, as well as local experts.

Working style with Clients:

  • Retained partnership where we provide a full-service mapping of the relevant market(s). On average, we identify over 150 professionals for each retained position and we meticulously headhunt each and every one, resulting in a shortlist of 3+ exactly matched Candidates for your brief.
  • Market monitoring and CV introduction on a contingent basis. If you have a specific skill set needed for the team and are unable to open an official process or do not have a specific timeline, we will keep you updated on professionals who are interested in your business and have the skills you are looking for.
  • Industry research and salary benchmarking projects for when your business is getting ready for the next stage of growth and/or investment. If you wish to attract a certain type of talent or find out about your brand image in the market before a crucial strategic move, we will gather relevant and industry-specific information, tailored to you and your business. This information is exclusively available only to you after the project is finished.

We are highly organized and follow a specific process for each of our clients. If you wish to work with partners who will find out all relevant information from the beginning of the project and will surely and quietly (without overwhelming your inbox on a daily basis) deliver the results you need by the date agreed, we are the partner for you. Our delivery time for shortlists is no more than 4-6 weeks. Should you still be waiting for one good CV 3-6 months later from your current partner, contact us immediately!

Working style with Candidates:

  • Updating or headhunting you for specific assignments. We aim for a long-term relationship with all our Candidates, keeping in touch with relevant roles as they come along, listening to your career wish-list and making sure we contact you only with matching positions.
  • Market Exploration for professionals in a situation where applying directly or notifying industry of your wish to change would be too risky and may compromise your current role. Enquire here on how it works and how we can help.

If you are in a process with us, you can look forward to preparation and coaching before each interview stage, advice on your CV and potential career paths in the industry.
