Onpoint Consulting

6

Onpoint Consulting is a soup to nuts recruiting agency. Their website is nice, it is easy to read and well thought out. They have a nationwide search capability however it seems they are both a staffing firm and also a management consulting firm in many different industries.

MEIRxRS

A company with three divisions, MEIRxRS offers “customized employment service solutions” in the retained recruiting, full service staffing and CRO areas.  For retained recruiting, the Med Exec international division advertises a focus on mid to executive level professionals. Their job board, however, tells a different story, showing positions in many different roles and functions (not just clinical research) with 1,512 open positions at the time of this writing.

Having this many open “soup to nuts” positions is very concerning and would lead me to believe this company is huge.  However, while their website is impressive, further digging showed this is a small company with a LinkedIn profile advertising the company size to be one (yes – 1).  There appear to be 4 employees on LinkedIn and the Med Exec International subdivision shows a company size of 1-10 employees.

With the small size of MEIRxRS, the “soup to nuts” focus is concerning to me.  As a hiring manager, I would want my position to be a primary focus to my staffing partner.  Additionally, I would want my staffing partner to be an expert recruiter in the clinical research field.  When my position is competing with 1,511 others in diverse fields, I would be concerned with how quickly the position is filled (and with what quality). Now, layer their double focus on CRO services and Clinical Staffing with the varied concentration on job types, and my concern grows even more.  As you know, I am always cautious using a CRO as a staffing company and I would ask you to consider one question before engaging any CRO to be your staffing agency:  If a CRO recruits a great CRA, where do you think they are motivated to place him/her? 

But we want to hear your experiences; add your comments about your current or past relationship with MEIRxRS here.

Adecco’s niche appears to be in 10 different industries: Accounting & Finance, Call Center & Customer Service, Creative & Marketing, Engineering, Hospitality, Industrial & Manufacturing, Information Technology, Medical, Office & Administrative, Science, and Transportation & Warehousing.

Clinical research positions are not specifically listed under Science or Medical jobs, but if you type it into their search field they do recruit contract CRAs, clinical auditors, clinical managers, RNs, clinical trial operations managers, clinical project managers, clinical data specialists, and scientists.

Kelly Scientific

While Kelly Services would be classified as a soup-to-nuts agency, Kelly Scientific is niched as a “strategic workforce solution” provider in the overall scientific industry focusing on everything from Food/Beverage, Environmental Health, Chemical, Energy, and Clinical Research.

All of you have likely heard of Kelly Services – and it is actually a pretty good story starting from the recognized “Kelly Girl” image in the 1940s to their present “Workforce Solution” brand.  And to be fair, Kelly Scientific may be a great solution for your organization; however, in my experience, there are cons when you wedge a single organization between you and the recruiting talent who can find specific candidates in a niched area.

Kelly has a nationwide (actually international) presence, a solid LinkedIn existence, an active Facebook page, but no interactive blog that we could find (although they do have hiring and job seeker tips on their website).  Interestingly, I also didn’t see where they offer a money back guarantee on their permanent / direct hire placements.

I would love to hear about their ability to provide a “personal touch” to candidates and clients in the niched clinical research area.  If you have worked with Kelly Scientific in any capacity, our Audience would love to hear from you.  Add your comments about Kelly Scientific here.

Yoh is a staffing firm that recruits for many industries.  Their blog and Facebook page is well developed but does not provide detailed information on their site regarding what they offer and what benefits the company provides to both the client and candidate.
