Scottish life sciences recruiter reports 30% turnover increase



Entrust Resource Solutions (ERS) has reported a turnover increase of 30% to £5.5m.

During the financial year to the end of March 2022, the life sciences and healthcare recruitment firm also doubled its headcount, including the creation of three new strategic roles: group operations director and two divisional directors.

The company puts growth down to rising demand for talent in the sectors it specialises in during the continued pandemic last year.

The company, which operates from three locations across the UK with a head office in Dundee, recruits for contract and permanent roles at all levels within the life science, healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors.

During 2021, ERS was responsible for placing 650 personnel across the UK, with a primary focus on technology development and manufacture, quality assurance and laboratory activity.

Chief executive Ryan Watson commented: “The UK life sciences sector is incredibly buoyant and is forecast to remain so for the foreseeable future.

“The foundation of this opportunity lies in the provision of relevant talent, for which ERS has earned an outstanding reputation, based upon our objective to support both client and candidate at an unprecedented level.”

The company’s continued growth strategy includes the development of a training academy in collaboration with Purdue University and the creation of a base in Warrington, designed to accommodate a growing team.
