Across the USA and Ireland, there is a shortage of highly skilled personnel within the Life Sciences sector. We believe that because our teams focus on specific key areas within each geographical location and sector, we have an in-depth understanding of what clients look for in a new candidate, and what candidates truly want from their next position. Strong relationships are built over time and are best done face to face, which is why our consultants make every effort to proactively meet with their candidates, in order to understand whether they ‘can’ do the job, but also whether or not they actually ‘will’

INterview preparation

Most recruitment companies prepare both candidates and clients before an interview, however at Thor, we believe that our preparation sets the standard for the industry. By really understanding candidates’ motivations we create bespoke interview preparation material before every meeting. This ensures that the candidate has a clear understanding of the responsibilities of the role, the client is aware of what the candidate is looking for in their next position and most importantly, all expectations are managed and aligned.

We have worked with many firms and only a few stand out from the rest. Thor Life Sciences are definitely one of the best! We have been extremely happy with their high level of service, professionalism in following our internal processes and their commitment to building a long-term relationship with us.
