Executive Search.

​Human Intelligence comes to the fore in our Search offerings. We draw upon our experience within life science and leverage a network of connections built exclusively in the industries that matter to you.

Executive & Board Appointments

Our full-service offering for business-critical talent needs and skills in short supply.

You’ll get ongoing support to develop the right hiring strategy for your wider growth plans, tailored to your sector in one of our four individual practices. You’ll get the clearest picture of who’s out there with global or regional market mapping and talent pooling, tapping into an unparalleled network we’ve built over 15 years. And you’ll get a full shortlist of the most capable candidates to fit your culture - who we’ve already approached and assessed against your key search criteria.

​Advisory Services

We deliver outcomes, not PowerPoints. We’re in the business of solving problems, not just looking for them. Tapping into our deep life science and recruitment knowledge we are able to give you unparalleled market insight and advice. Where our in-house expertise do not match your projects, we also have access to a vetted network of professional services partners - commercial and access strategy, funding, M&A, change management. You’ll get more than a report; you’ll get the capability you need to achieve your goals.

Permanent Recruitment.

​We recognize that having gaps in your team stands between you and your business' life-enhancing mission. Our teams will work with you to see the need beyond the requirement and leverage our network to find you the right person to enhance that gap.

CoTained Search

Designed for urgent hiring needs in competitive markets, CoTained searches work best for mid-senior management roles where deep market intelligence isn’t needed.

It’s an approach unique to RBW; we combine tailored strategy with delivery at speed. You’ll be assigned a dedicated Lead Headhunter, backed by an admin and research team. They’ll agree a bespoke delivery timeline with you, then give you a steady pipeline of talent profiles, delivered as we source them - so you’ve got more agility to move fast. You’ll have clear sight of every step of the search, with progress detailed in regular candidate selection reports.

Contingent Recruitment

Created for mid-level management or volume recruitment, Contingent Search is our fastest, most efficient approach to straightforward hiring needs. We draw on deep market intelligence to quickly identify suitable talent and refer them straight to you - before the competition reaches them. Our Contingent Search clients only pay a fee if the hire goes ahead.

Contract Recruitment.

Your business doesn't stand still. Our Project-based solutions can help you scale-up rapidly and efficiently to match ever-changing needs. Our unmatched networks are able to react to a wide range of business needs when and where you need them.


Ideal for short term or project based senior roles, our Interim network gives you access to high-skilled talent on a more flexible basis. First, we’ll give you strategic counsel on the right kinds of contractors to achieve particular business goals. Then we’ll introduce you to highly specialized experts who can start in weeks, not months.


When flexibility is critical, our Contractor offering gives you access to talent on tap - from a single specialist to a whole business function - so you can achieve your mission with minimal risk and without fixed overheads. This kind of search is best for complex projects with tight timelines and evolving requirements.
