The Project

  • Restructure of the Supply Chain & Logistics team in EMEA for this rapidly expanding Diagnostics organization.
  • Project requiring a confidential search which cannot be managed by their internal Talent Acquisition (TA) team.
  • TA team already have a network of candidates from a VP hire and so have requested Medexec’s support on this assignment due to a highly sensitive internal challenge potentially impacting the culture of the organization.

Our Recommendation

  • Confidential and retained agreement requiring Medexec to obtain nondisclosure agreements (NDAs) from all the TA’s candidates.
  • Robust screening process and face-to-face meetings, executing these on behalf of the TA team whilst ensuring they are structurally consistent and mirroring the company’s existing internal recruitment process.
  • Medexec to perform a wider search in the medical and life science sector market for candidates in Supply Chain and Logistics Director level roles holding EMEA & Global experience, to ensure that all suitable profiles are considered.
