What employees say

I love the culture at i-Pharm. I wake up wanting to go to work – the people are great and I love managing and supporting my team. Also, the industry is really interesting too, the people my team recruit really make a difference in the development of new treatments for diseases and I enjoy playing a small part in that!

We are very high performing company and we celebrate our wins constantly – we don’t have just one linear progression structure here but opportunities to fit peoples strengths, this makes it somewhere people love to work and you always feel rewarded.

Our facilities contribute to a good working environment.

What defines us

At i-Pharm, we genuinely believe that the investment made in our culture sets us apart from our rivals across the recruitment industry. Most recruitment firms have lunch clubs, top-biller trips and beer fridges on a Friday, but we take a more team-based, inclusive approach to incentivising our people and building an environment in which they can have fun, feel welcome and thrive.

Our learning and development programme is more advanced than many others in our industry and is closely tied to employee growth. Our training approach is proactive rather than reactive, as we constantly look for ways in which our people can further their capabilities and reach their goals.

What inspires us

Unlike other recruitment businesses that empower a traditional dog-eat-dog sales environment through incentives schemes that reward performance alone, at i-Pharm we prioritise team-building, collaboration and enjoying each other’s company.

We offer a wide range of incentives to our people, including city break holidays, quarterly lunch clubs, an annual VIP trip and monthly team incentives.

As well as unlimited paid time off, all of our team members across the globe have free access to an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) that includes a 24-hour helpline to support them with any issues or problems they may be facing. Whatever the issue our employees may be facing we know that offering a first-class EAP is important and we began implementation of the programme several years ago.

Action highlights

We invest far more than most of our competitors do in creating a learning and development culture at i-Pharm, with clear career paths set out for our trainee consultants from day one so that they can easily see their route to directorship if that is what they choose.

Our progression plan is designed to fit the skills of the consultant: those that seek to lead a team or a practice can see that path available to them while those that are interested in a different direction or have skillsets elsewhere have the autonomy to manage their own career growth.

Every i-Pharm employee is set promotion targets so that they can easily understand what they need to do in order to make the next step up. In addition to regular formal and informal reviews of progress, we also offer all our staff – whether recruiting or non-recruiting – access to a wide range of training opportunities.

Word from the top

At the core of our culture is the value that we place on the people that work for us; their skills, knowledge, experience, and contribution to the clients and candidates that we serve. It is important to me that we offer everyone that works for us ‘more than just a job.’

We want to be an employer that focuses on flexibility, inclusion, collaboration, and health and wellbeing. We live our values by putting our employees at the heart of our business.

We understand that what you need from us as your employer to make you feel supported and secure extends to more than a job.
