The pharmaceutical industry is still regarded as one of the most rapidly growing and innovative industries. Even though there are some small and medium sized pharmaceutical companies, the industry is mainly recognised through the Top 10 global pharma companies such as Johnson&Johnson, Novartis, and Pfizer. It is our concern to be able to offer a broad range of potential employers for our candidates, which is why there are small, medium-sized, and big pharma companies in our client base. We do not only focus on so-called originators in our market, but also on generics companies, contract manufacturers, contract research organisations, contract labs and engineering-suppliers who are crucial for the pharmaceutical industry.
Whilst the pharmaceutical industry is mainly embossed by big companies, the biotech industry in Germany is still dominated by small and medium-sized companies. In the last decade, many so-called biotech clusters have been set up, which are operation in different regions and help small companies with a functioning infrastructure. The biotech scene can certainly be described as fragile but yet immensely innovative.
We understand the industry and its specific character; we know that they are often financially dependent and hence not only in a technological competition with other companies but also in a fierce competition for aid money and investors. This is why many biotech companies have difficulties in preserving some money for a recruitment firm, even if they have a critical recruitment need. However, we have managed to find tailored solutions for many biotech companies in the past. We would be happy to evaluate opportunites with you, too.
The medical devices industry is dominated by medium-sized companies; even though there are, of course, also some big companies, the majority of medical device companies is medium-sized (>90%).
We collaborate with medical device companies, OEM/OED firms, and engineering suppliers so that we can offer a broad range of potential employers to our candidates.
The diagnostics industry, even though it is often regarded as part of the medical devices industry, plays an important role for ageneo. The market and many trends within like the call for personalised medicine, for example, drive the diagnostics industry to more and more innovations.
Not only, but considerably in the regulatory and compliance field, there is a huge need for consulting in the life science industries. Accordingly, there are many consulting firms focussing on certain relevant aspects for the industry such as regulatory compliance, technical documentation, process consulting etc.
