At SThree and across our nine specialist brands, we pride ourselves on the dedication and passion we have for the industries we work in and the support we can provide our customers to achieving their goals and career ambitions.
As a leading STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) recruitment organisation we understand the impact of what we do. We’re not just filling roles; we place experts who are part of the team that develop new life changing drugs or medical devices or are part of a groundbreaking engineering project.
We spoke to Joy Cressot, Principal Consultant at SThree brand Real Life Sciences, France about the passion and determination she’s seen first-hand in the industry and why she’s so proud of supporting her inspiring clients.
"Every day I come to work in the knowledge that the candidates and companies I work with are changing lives and are supporting people that need a variety of treatments. To hear the passion and drive of those I work with is so inspiring.
"I met a few years ago with the general manager of a biotech company who was incredibly talented and impressive – she has this passion, and commitment to the industry that I truly appreciated and respected. She spoke of her daughter, who was diagnosed with Sanfilippo syndrome, a very rare disease affecting her growth and ultimately, her life.
"After receiving the news, together with her husband, they researched every possible existing treatment available, and found nothing. Faced with limited options, they decided to create a biotech company that would gather the greatest expert physicians and scientists in the field.
"They progressed to pre-clinical trials and are currently in Phase II and are partnering with prestigious medical schools and universities to raise much needed funds to bring this breakthrough therapy to those that need it."
"I’ve come across many stories similar to this, where a company is created by people who have experienced tough times whether it’s the loss of a relative or severe emotional distress having impacted their lives.
"Individuals like these who are working within life sciences have the courage and dedication to take research a step further. They take what I can only imagine to be one of the hardest challenges of their lives and turn it around to benefit the wider industry and change the lives of many.
"Working with these inspiring people brings home how much we owe those working within life sciences, and if I can help source the talent organisations' need and contribute in some small way I’m proud to be able to help."
