THE RECRUITMENT AGENCY THAT PRODUCES RESULTS

National Search Associates provides executive search and recruitment services for the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Medical Device, and Diagnostics industries on local, national, and global levels. We have successfully led searches from scientist level through CEO and Board of Directors.

Specialization within the Life Science community has been the key to our success since our inception in 1991. Furthermore, we have established and developed distinct areas of concentration within our recruitment practice to ensure our recruiters are equipped with specific functional expertise, scientific knowledge, and market intelligence relevant to these areas of specialization. This allows us to swiftly identify the right candidates for your opening and effectively facilitate a process of mutual discovery.

We work with Fortune 100 companies along with small and medium sized biotechs alike to identify and attract the talent they need to thrive in their respective fields. Our methodical approach involves getting to know your organization and the demands of the role you need to fill. Once we understand your culture and the unique qualifications you’re looking for in an ideal candidate, we begin collaborating with your team to identify and further explore prospective talent.

Let us put our expertise to work for you.
