What makes us so special as a recruiter for medical technology and the pharmaceutical industry?

We are specialised.

We are recruiters in the medical technology and pharmaceutical industry – and only there.

We are experts.

All our employees are not only personnel professionals, they also know the special requirements of the life science industries and are regularly further qualified by external consultants from the medical technology and pharmaceutical industries.

We have the best network.

Due to our clearly defined target group, we have one of the best developed networks in our sector in the German-speaking countries. We know where highly qualified professionals work and which candidates are potentially interested in a career move. And we are the first to find out when an attractive job needs to be filled.

We are fast.

We have one goal only: to find the top professionals in the industry in the shortest possible time. In the case of interim positions, we can usually do this in less than 72 hours.

We are close partners.

With high market penetration and active applicant management, we have built up such a close relationship with professionals that we almost always succeed in winning even the most highly sought-after candidates for our clients. Even those who are deliberately hardly active on social networks.

We are demanding.

We analyse the individual job requirements and create a real top match for you thanks to our benchmark process. At pates everything happens according to the four-eyes principle. And our quality assurance does not end with the successful recruitment. We want to know how satisfied our customers are – so that we can recruit the best even faster and more accurately next time.

We are known among others from the following media ...

6 steps to your qualified candidate

In six steps, we ensure that your new candidate fits your expectations exactly. At the same time, we relieve your human resources from the time-consuming and cost-intensive search for highly specialized and highly sought-after candidates.


The cornerstone for a quick placement success is our detailed first briefing interview. We want to get to know you and your corporate culture in detail. Together, we then develop an attractive and precise job description - we know exactly what you can score with as an employer when looking for employees.

Based on the defined requirements, we determine an individual acquisition process for your position. Optionally, we also offer workshops in which we use our benchmark process to define the advertised position in even greater detail and analyze the motivators.


With our modern recruiting tools, we quickly track down the ideal candidates for you.

On average, our database contains around 30,180 specialists who are interested in a new position in medical technology or the pharmaceutical industry. At the same time, we activate our individual networks, including relevant forums and blogs.

We only place ads when it makes sense and only where they will be read.


Our recruiting experts use personality diagnostics and our CLAMPS model to assess and analyse which applicants are the best fit for your company – both in terms of soft skills and professional qualifications.

We conduct individual interviews with the most promising applicants and, if necessary, bring in experts. We prepare the results for you in individual, clearly structured candidate portfolios.


Based on our qualified candidate portfolios, you decide who gets an invitation to a personal interview. We then prepare the candidates in detail for the interview and inform them in advance about everything that is important to you as a company. We are also happy to accompany the interview personally.

In the post-processing phase, we prepare short exposés for you on the results of the interview – so you have a qualified basis for evaluation.


If you wish, we will then conduct the contract talks with your preferred candidates – about salary, special benefits or outstanding legal issues.

We actively support you in overcoming any hurdles to employment so that the change of employer runs smoothly for both sides, even if your desired candidate is to join you earlier than the current contract allows.

Support and monitoring

Efficient quality control helps us to constantly optimise our selection process. For example, in the top service level of our recruiting models, we ask you about your satisfaction with your new employee during the first 12 months. The results of our quality control broaden and deepen our customer profile of your company. So next time we will find your perfect match even faster and more precisely.
