Intelligent Recruitment. Simplified​.


Welcome to Medella Life

As specialist recruiters in life sciences, our mission is to create a positive impact in the world. We place visionary people in thriving cultures where they can create a brighter future. Our impact and what that means to society is why we go the extra mile. We even baked it into our name, Medella, which means to heal. Pairing brilliant scientists with brilliant companies we find wildly exciting, and it drives everything we do.  

No matter how hard, at Medella Life we live by our values. We may be new, but we are here to earn our stripes. Our founding team has more than twenty-five years experience in the field. Our mission is to be your first call when looking for A-list talent. What matters to us is being the best, not being the biggest. That's why we value quality over quantity. It is our belief that science can save the world. Which is why a Medella Life is a good life.

Our Value

Because our reputation is everything, we’re meticulous and believe being diligent inspires confidence. Our level of rigor is remarkable in contingency recruitment, but our search for authenticity lies behind the success of highly-selective shortlists. This is why we listen, slow down and think about what we're doing at Medella Life.

We default to transparency because no matter how wide we search, our reputation rests only on our ability to deliver. For candidates, this often means quite challenging, in-depth interviews. As cultural fit is make or break, it demands time and focus. Otherwise everyone loses out, avoiding this we take seriously.
