We are a highly focused search boutique working in two niche sectors: Pharmaceutical Technology and Commercial Education

We provide detailed, sector specific insights to help inform our trusted partners’ hiring strategies. People and Progress are our passion and everything we do is based on our experience of approximately two decades of operation within these complex sectors.

We are proud to support two industries that are fundamental to the improvement of our planet, through the development of new ground-breaking drugs, or through driving the democratisation of knowledge.

Industry Expertise

Our constantly updated market insight, based on over 20 years of consistent, focused and successful support of critical areas, enables us to source the right individuals for our clients and to articulate their propositions in detail, with professionalism. As a global boutique we support our clients across Europe, the US and Asia-Pacific, and they range from pre revenue start-ups in CTMS through to the largest and most established players in eCOA, Imaging and RTSM. Our customers are predominantly rapidly expanding, PE backed businesses including those at the leading edge of technology in AI, DCT to RBQM.
We have supported Commercial Education organisations to deliver outstanding student and business outcomes for over 15 years. Our clients are predominantly PE backed, rapidly scaling, international businesses at the leading edge of education across EdTech, Higher Education, K12 and Education Services sectors. We have a proven history of not only securing market leading talent within the sector, but also being able to identify those who can successfully pivot into it from other sectors. At Spencer Group, we are proud to support a sector of such significant international growth and impact.
