Types of Pharmaceutical Recruiting
Direct-placement recruitment in the pharmaceutical industry refers to the process of directly hiring candidates for specific roles within a company. Unlike recruitment process outsourcing (RPO), where a recruitment agency assumes the role of HR within a company, direct hire recruitment involves the company's internal HR team or talent acquisition department hiring the recruitment agency to scout talent for a permanent role.
Direct-placement recruitment allows companies to have full control over the hiring process and decision-making. It can be beneficial for pharmaceutical companies that have a strong internal HR team with expertise in the industry and specific job roles.

Recruitment process outsourcing
Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) in the pharmaceutical industry is a type of outsourcing where a company partners with a specialized recruitment agency to handle all or part of their recruitment process. RPO is commonly used by pharmaceutical companies to streamline their hiring process, improve efficiency, and reduce costs.

These agencies have a deep understanding of the industry and its specific requirements, allowing them to find qualified candidates who are the right fit for the company's needs.

This allows the partnering companies to focus on their core business activities while ensuring that they fill hiring needs.
