craresources

Another niche recruiting firm to notice is craresources.  The company was established in 2007 and while they do focus on the recruitment of clinical research professionals, their primary claim to fame is the placement of CRAs.

So I guess you can say they have a niche within a niche.  They have an outstanding LinkedIn presence with a very mature LinkedIn Group which only allows clinical professionals (no recruiters, no one from outside of the clinical research industry).  They also have a very active blog where they provide ongoing resources and support to their job seekers and hiring managers.

Their size is fairly small (11-50 employees with 19 recruiters listed on LinkedIn), but with them being so specialized in our industry, I don’t see their size as an issue.  The other thing I noticed was that they offer a 90 day money back guarantee on their permanent placements.  I know a lot of recruiting companies offer some type of “guarantee”, but it is nice to see a company put it into writing.

They have a nationwide reach (all of North America, actually), have an expertise in direct sourcing passive candidates, and a low attrition rate.

Clinical Solutions Group (aka CSG)

5

CSG is another niche clinical recruitment firm established in 1999 and located in Raleigh, NC.  They advertise that they place both contract and perm positions and state they offer excellent benefits, referral bonuses, relocation, training reimbursement and continuing education.

I find this offer quite interesting as typical recruiting companies will not provide employee type benefits to consultants.  The positions posted on their website are across the US so they appear to have a solid nationwide reach.

We didn’t find any negative or positive feedback on CSG.  We also couldn’t find a company blog offering advice to clinical research professionals in the job search or hiring topics.  We did find their LinkedIn presence and it is fairly small with a single digit number of recruiters listed as working with the company.  While having a smaller recruiting organization is acceptable when niched in a specific industry, I would be concerned if the team is this small on how quickly they can turn around submittals…so if you engage CSG, ask how many recruiters will be focused on your needs and also ask what their average turn around time is for submitting candidates.

BioForce Solutions

BioForce Solutions has their services advertised as a Staffing firm but the website is very confusing and poorly designed. The link dedicated to candidates takes users to a separate page but no option to do anything else. The client section is very vague although it provides some content however it is not very organized. They are active on Linkedin with 443 followers and it shows 4 active employees.
