Canopy’s Global Life Sciences Recruitment: Trusted, Experienced, and Connected
At Canopy, our experienced recruiting team is highly trained in understanding the intricacies of creating the most effective candidate search with the ultimate goal of finding a perfect fit for both the candidate and our client. We utilize a highly interactive approach in that we do not simply “post” roles and hope a candidate applies. Rather, we leverage strategic outreach plans that allow us to identify the right candidate. Because of our deep relationships and reputation across the industry, we are able to engage those candidates in detailed conversations about opportunities, as well as their interests and needs. We specialize in roles within Medical Affairs, Clinical Affairs, and Scientific Communications and would welcome the opportunity to partner with you.

Global MSL Recruiting & Deployment

We deploy Contract MSL teams specifically recruited and deployed for each client.  We offer a wide range of options from complete “Turn Key” teams, which include SOPs, training, management, content creation, CRM technologies, insight generation, etc to basic MSL deployment.   We work with our clients to help them determine what resources they need and consider factors such as budget, timelines, organizational structure, geography, etc.  Because of our decades of real-world experience and our commitment to provide the highest quality of service, our teams consistently excel in meeting their objectives.  As a result, the feedback we receive from our clients reflect this.
