Catalyst Life Sciences Launch Their New Website!
Posted 01 October by Nicola Lawler
After months of hard work, the team at Catalyst Life Sciences were excited to formally launch their new website this week. The candidate-centric site launches with a new job board and visitors to the site should expect to see new jobs uploaded every day. Jobs are split into our five job sectors for easy viewing and to enable candidates to perform a targeted job search. Candidates will also be able to create an account with the site where they can upload and update their CV, save job searches, sign up for job alerts and have consultants approach them directly about a new opportunity. The site now also features an interactive 'Meet the Team' page where Catalyst's candidates and clients can meet and reach out to consultants about a career or partnership consultation directly. Catalyst Life Sciences started out six years ago as the life sciences division within JCW. Earlier this year, Catalyst branched out into their own business, under the JCW Group. In an article released on the JCW site about the team branching out of JCW, our Director Luis Haddow said: “Here at Catalyst, we take the time to carefully understand our client’s needs and how they like to be portrayed to the market and we are slowly being recognised as a go-to agency by a number of leading, innovative companies. By rebranding, we now have our own logo, website and our own identity and it allows us to go from being the best-kept secret in Life Science recruitment to being recognised by the whole industry, candidates and clients alike. It’s an exciting time for us and a huge step towards our long-term ambition of solidifying ourselves as a market leading recruitment firm.” Candidates should also expect to see social media being rolled out to improve communications with the market and a blog page where they can read news and advice to help them get on in their careers and in their current roles." Catalyst’s clients should expect the site to further demonstrate that Catalyst Life Sciences is the candidate hub for top talent in the technical and regulatory sectors. JCW has experienced one of the steepest growth curves in its history with JCW becoming a parent company to Catalyst Life Sciences and Cybernetic Search in the past year.

"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."
James Ben Fraj, Associate 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."
Alice Arnold, Senior Consultant ,
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.

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.
"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,
"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,
"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."
