What makes our specialist recruitment company so special?

Recruiting Competence Center

Our highly specialised Recruiting Competence Center (RCC) finds top specialists in the industry in the shortest possible time, for either permanent or freelance positions. Our deep market penetration and active candidate management means we have such close relationships with specialists that we can generally acquire even the most sought-after candidates. These include those specialists who are not active on social media networks.


As a specialist recruiter for the medical technology and pharmaceutical sectors, we have the benefit of one of the best developed networks in the industry for German-speaking countries. We know where the highly qualified professionals are working and which candidates are potentially interested in making a career move. And we are the first to know when an attractive job becomes vacant.

Personnel experts

Our recruiters are expert in acquiring personnel as well as being highly familiar with the specific needs of the life science sectors. All our staff undergo regular training and are kept up-to-date by external consultants from the medical and pharmaceutical sectors. Such expert knowledge is vital to our success and is much more than just a small, subtle difference that differentiates us from other recruiting companies.

Quality assurance

Everything we do at pates undergoes review by a second person, from analysing individual job requirements and screening candidate profiles through to pre-selecting the best applicants. Quality assurance does not just end after a successful placement. We need to know how satisfied clients are with their new employees so we can recruit the best even faster and with even more precision.
