Although Cosmetics & Personal Care are similar areas in terms of manufacturing & laboratory disciplines, they can be separated in terms of specific experience and regulatory standards. We do find candidates can move between the two sectors, not least in Formulation & Development but we do tend to find that Cosmetics can be a narrow field with experienced candidates sought after by the industry leaders due to a small candidate pool and a very specific way of working. We work with a number of leading cosmetic manufacturing brand leaders, who tend to seek R&D, Process Development, Analytical & Regulatory candidates more frequently than most other skills/discipline area’s. We tend to find that our Personal Care clients typically recruit for Formulation & Quality candidates above all else. They are constantly reformulating existing products & developing new products with quality & efficiency or production paramount. Amongst the team, cosmetics & personal care is one of the sectors we are most experienced in & a trusted recruitment partner for a number of clients & candidates.
