Company Description

Recruiting is a lost art. We’ve brought it back to the basics. Here’s how.

Helping People Succeed.
As a part of the TalentZök family, we focus on helping you identify the best talent. Whether you’re seeking temporary help or help on a direct hire basis, Simply Biotech and the TalentZök family of companies can connect you to the right person for the job.

Biotech. It’s all we do.
We believe that effective and successful recruiting must be specialized. It is the only way to truly know both companies and job seekers and the most effective way to bring them together. At Simply Biotech, we focus only on the biotech/device industry.

No “resume farming” here
The most talented people rarely post their resumes to job boards. They are out there working, untapped. Many don't even know they are interested in better opportunities because they are passive job seekers. You want the best person for the job and chances are, the best person doesn't have their resume posted. They may even be working for your competitor. So searching the job boards along with every other biotech firm won't get you the result you're looking for. Only old-fashioned recruiting - picking up the phone, networking and finding the talent in the workforce - will get you the perfect match.

Thank you for calling
We've picked up that old book on customer service, dusted it off, and put it back into practice. How many times have you left a message and never heard back? At Simply Biotech, customer service is our priority. We return calls promptly. We don't let you fall through the cracks. It sounds so simple yet so few know how to do it right.

We do our homework - to save you time
Before filling a position, we speak with many of the people involved in making the decisions and ask quite a few questions. While this takes a little longer in the beginning of the process, it allows us to better understand what’s most important in a candidate. That way, we send only qualified candidates who will be in line with what you’re looking for.

Many recruiters just forward resumes to clients. At Simply Biotech, we conduct a thorough interview with each candidate before presenting them to you. We speak with them about their experience at each position and find out who they reported to, what their responsibilities were, and why they left. Many times this uncovers information that is omitted in the resume and that may be vital to your decision. We feel that it is our responsibility to thoroughly screen candidates before presenting them to you. This process results in fewer, better candidates for you to consider - and saves you time.
