Start-up Spotlight: Biotech Rec

Biotech Rec aims to be the leading life science specialist recruiter, its founder tells Recruiter.

Scott Hubball, director of new life science specialist recruiter Biotech Rec, believes that without his first boss in recruitment he wouldn’t be where he is now.

Having now launched his own recruitment business, Hubball began his career in the industry at Think Specialist Recruitment: “I was lucky enough to be trained by the MD, Chris Jones, who taught me all the principles to become a successful recruiter. If it wasn’t for him, I would not be in the position I am now.”

From Think SR, he moved into the life sciences sector, which he found “incredibly interesting and hugely rewarding”. He built relationships with individuals “in some of the leading life science companies around the world, along with exciting entrepreneurs who have innovative products hopeful of reaching the market”.

This was a catalyst in launching Biotech Rec: “Biotech Rec has a strong network of clients and candidates, which is growing daily. The best way to stand out in the market is to demonstrate relationships by repeat business.

“I wanted to take the knowledge and experience I have gained throughout my life to build a company that utilises all the positives. I want to create a company that people will want to join by giving them the trust and support to achieve goals within their career and life.”

Moving forward, over the next year Hubball hopes to grow the team internally and (Covid dependent) open its first office, with a new joiner confirmed for April. Biotech Rec is a partner of Davidson Gray, which provides support to start-up recruitment businesses.

“We have aggressive growth plans and aim to be the pinnacle agency providing recruitment services to the life science sector,” he concludes.
