Over the years, the career managers have built relationships with top companies in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries. These companies, both large multinationals and innovative biotech companies, gladly entrust their vacancies and projects to them.
Science Talents offers 3 different services to meet all needs. Through 'Recruitment and Selection' vacancies at the client are filled. If there is a vacancy for a temporary project, they will look for a suitable Consultant or Freelancer.
The Career Managers are continuously working on their network of scientific profiles. They screen candidates and propose a suitable assignment. In this way, they help shape the career of 'their talents'.
With one foot in the door at the client and the other among the candidates, the Career Managers know how to find the right match every time. Whether this concerns a permanent contract, a consultancy, or a freelance project.
1. Recruitment & Selection
A vacancy for a permanent job? Through 'Recruitment and Selection', Science Talents searches for the suitable candidate and guides him or her through the selection procedure.
The match between talent and company
Many companies work with a partner for the publication of their vacancies. This partner knows their way of working, quickly understands the profile they are looking for, and can rely on an extensive network. Science Talents publishes these vacancies in their own network and on various channels. In this way, they continue to expand their network of scientific talent.
For the applicant, this approach has nothing but advantages, as the Career Managers handle every CV. After an interview, they look at which job is the best fit for the candidate. This can be the job where he or she initially applied for, but it can also be a different job that better suits the needs and profile of the candidate.
Fast lane to a permanent job
The candidate is guided through the entire application process: fixing the appointment, tips for during the interview, and assistance in negotiating the contract. Science Talents knows the value of each profile better than any other and makes sure their candidates work under the right conditions.
In the scientific field, there is a high demand for consultants and project-based expertise. Ideal for those who want to gain experience in different companies and departments. Science Talents is the partner for a successful consultancy career.
One steady employer ...
The consultants receive a permanent contract, and Science Talents outsources them to its clients. In this way, they enjoy the benefits of a fixed employer and are assigned to the most sought-after companies in the sector.
Their salary package includes a car and fuel card, which is a nice benefit and very convenient for those who move from one assignment to the next. They also enjoy several extra-legal benefits, regardless of whether they are working for a large company or a start-up.
The Career Managers are on call for them daily. They follow up on the ongoing project, have their finger on the pulse and discuss the consultant's ambitions and wishes for the next project. In this way they provide the necessary guidance and help to map out the career path of their consultants.
... many companies and departments
Project-based assignments bring many benefits to consultants. For example, each assignment contributes to new knowledge, new experiences, and new relationships.
In each company they are introduced to different working methods and business processes. They see what works well and what can be improved, and they take this experience with them to the next project. In this way, they do not only bring substantive expertise to the table, but they can also provide valuable insights on the internal operations.
Temporary assignments also have added value at the beginning of a career. Sometimes companies just need a temporary employee, and there are certainly projects to be found where experience is not an absolute requirement.
These start-up talents are incredibly quick learners and often bring new ideas to the table. Many companies appreciate their open-mindedness and young enthusiasm.
By exploring different angles in a short period of time, they find out in practice which direction they want to head in their career. What are they good at? In which area do they want to specialize? What will their niche be?

Those who have already accumulated a fair amount of experience in the scientific world often make the move and become a freelancer. Being self-employed gives them various significant advantages, especially if they partner with Science Talents.
Advantages of the freelance status
The financial aspect is often the trigger to start as a freelancer. Those who have achieved a certain level of experience and matching salary are better off, fiscally speaking, as self-employed. But this is not the only motivation.
For these scientists, the various projects result in an enormous enrichment in terms of knowledge. They bring a lot of know-how to the companies they work for, but also deepen their own expertise with each project. Every assignment provides them with a few new insights. The flexibility, the possibility of adopting a different work rhythm, is also an important motivator for many. Some use this independence to create some free moments every week. Others combine projects at different companies simultaneously.

Science Talents, partner of ‘science freelancers’
Freelancers active in the pharmaceutical, chemical or food industry will find the ideal partner in Science Talents. A partner who introduces them to companies outside of their own network and who offers real added value.
The Career Managers assist the freelancers with the contract and administration, which in large organizations is often a complex and time-consuming process. Long payment terms are often an obstacle as well. Science Talents therefore pays its freelancers punctually, usually even before the company itself has paid the invoice. This way, the freelancer can focus on his or her projects in peace.
The career partner for every science talent
The ambition of the Career Managers? They are the coach and supporter of 'their scientific talents'. They assure them interesting projects, facilitate the entire process, and ensure that each person ends up in the best place. Either as a freelancer, a consultant or with a permanent contract.
Science Talents nurtures all its talents, bringing them together several times a year. This way, they keep in touch with their colleagues working for other clients. These are the perfect moments to share knowledge and opportunities, to get to know each other better, and to inspire one another. FUN is also a must at these events.
