Sourcing future leaders for the global pharmaceutical industry.

The pharmaceutical industry is responsible for the research, development, production and marketing of medicines.



With global pharmaceutical revenue now exceeding one trillion US dollars, further growth for this industry is certain. A high dependence on research and development brings consistent innovation to drug discovery and development.

Harrison Frazer’s Pharmaceutical Division incorporates executive search for the global pharmaceutical industry, across all therapeutic areas and at all stages of drug discovery, development, and commercialization. Our division is subdivided into four focus areas: Pre-Clinical Drug Discovery; Clinical Operations and Development; Contract Research and Manufacturing; and Commercialization. With specialist consultants for each focus, we can effectively communicate and understand the needs of our clients and candidates.

With the need for outsourcing large scale drug development within the Pharma industry increasing in recent years; Contract Research and Manufacturing has become a priority growth sector within the industry. Firms specialising on specific therapeutic areas and in key stages of drug discovery and development, are key tools for pharmaceutical companies to reach success in their overall company aims.

The innovative nature of the pharmaceutical industry is particularly demonstrated in the growth of the bioinformatics world. Within the industry, bioinformatics tools are utilized across all stages of drug development. The computational modelling of proteins and systems leads to the identification of novel drug targets; and statistical modelling is applied to clinical trial data. As a rapidly advancing field, bioinformatics is constantly harnessing cutting edge technologies, such as artificial intelligence, in a biological setting.

"Hannah was very helpful in her role as consultant during what I'll call the employment partnership process (matching up the company's interests with my own). She did a great job making sure the process of interviewing and exchanging information went smoothly, and frequently checked in to ask if I had any questions or concerns."

"Sam is one of the best recruiters I have ever worked with. He was very personable, thorough, and tenacious. Despite the time difference between our respective locations (he was in the UK and I was in California USA), we spoke on the phone on several occasions at a time that was much more convenient for me than for him."
