  • James Ben Fraj, Associate Consultant

    "I started at Catalyst Life Sciences because I was looking for a change of career. Not only have Catalyst offered me that but they have also allowed me to develop myself with brilliant training and mentoring to really fulfill my potential. Catalyst Life Sciences has a great culture that integrates new staff very quickly and I actually look forward to coming to work every day. The culture at Catalyst allows you to fulfill your potential and aim for your dreams. The training is second to none, with one to one mentoring and coaching, group training sessions and even the CEO taking any opportunity to support you along your journey. I wished I had joined ten years ago and really look forward to being a part of this business for many years to come."

  • Alice Arnold, Senior Consultant

    "When I joined JCW back in November 2015, I was straight out of a job on a horse ranch and had no idea what to expect. I picked JCW partly because of the excellent training on offer, but also because of the genuine enthusiasm of the people who interviewed me and the mega buzz in the office when I came and sat on the sales floor! Since then I’ve had a crazy couple of years – I’ve gone from an entry level Associate role to a Senior leading a small team in the Life Sciences space. The main reason this has happened is that the training I have received the whole way through has been absolutely fantastic – from the first academy right through the manager training programme run by our CEO Jamie. A principal focus at JCW is on becoming an expert in your own niche market and this really helps to build strong client and candidate relationships. I feel I really understand the area in which I recruit in and this allows me to be much more consultative to the people I speak to every day."

    I joined Catalyst Life Sciences earlier this year and I really enjoy it. I love that all the teamwork as one, from Associate level to Directors’. There has never a time when someone refused to give someone else a helping hand or advice. I really couldn’t expect better for my first role in the city. The smart casual dress code, the music and the standing desks are just bonuses on top of the fantastic working environment offered at Catalyst. As an ambitious French man, I always dreamed about having a place in the city of London. Even better, I now realise with Catalyst that the world is your oyster once you are walking with the right team, the right training, and the right mindset. I’m now very excited and motivated about my future. I’d say both professionally and personally, Catalyst gives you the best chance to grow and be successful.

  • Validation Specialist

    I was apprehensive about starting a job search but my consultant Bobby was so helpful. He explained what was happening in the current job market and what was working well for other people with my skills and experience and why. What stood out for me was that instead of throwing random jobs at me he took the time to establish what kind of projects I wanted to work on to develop my career and what companies were best for me. He was very hands-on throughout the process and always kept in touch which I really appreciated.

  • Senior Quality Assurance Officer

    "I recommend Catalyst Life Sciences because I appreciated my consultant’s honesty throughout the job search process and the way he managed my expectations. He explained in a very candid manner about what each role would entail and why working at each company would and wouldn’t be a good fit for me. As he said, there’s no point in dressing up a role like it was best for me because 6 months down the line the honeymoon period and excitement over a new role would wear off. The role they placed me in was definitely the best choice for me and having that genuine interaction and communication style with my consultant really helped me get the best company match. I’m really happy with my new job, it was by far the best decision."

    Senior Quality Assurance Officer,

  • Regulatory Affairs Director

    "My consultant Will, worked round the clock to help me fill a role that I was under pressure to fill fast. I was impressed because he had a thorough technical understanding of what I wanted without me having to explain everything all the time. He knew precisely who to go for and it definitely wasn’t a ‘one candidate fits all’ situation. He sent me 4 easy to read CVs and I took 3 to interview. I’m pleased with the candidate that I hired and will definitely be giving Catalyst Life Sciences a call again as my team grows."

    Regulatory Affairs Director,

  • Quality Affairs Manager

    "I highly recommend Catalyst Life Sciences because I turned to them after I made a few hiring mistakes that I wanted to avoid moving forward. The first thing my consultant did was to establish what I didn’t want in a candidate and where I had gone wrong in the past. I thought that was a really impressive approach as the qualification criteria for my vacancies are usually similar. Through this approach, my consultant was able to vet accordingly. I interviewed 3 people, and I was in the fortunate position of being able to pick the best candidate from a candidate pool where all seemed like a really good match."
