Q: How can you be so confident of your people?
A: We have an enormous database of qualified pharmacy sector professionals and our rigorous screening process helps us quickly narrow the choices down to a few ideal candidate(s) for each project. The shortlisted candidate is then thoroughly pre-screened and telephone interviewed before you ever meet them. They fill out a detailed questionnaire containing their references, employment history, technical skills, etc, a copy of which is submitted with each CV.
