Time for pastures new?

Medical device and life sciences - one of the pillars that we're built on

As founding recruitment partners of the Scottish Life Sciences Association (SLA), the Scottish and broader UK biotech, medical device and life sciences industry is one of the pillars that ESS is built on.

We have over thirty years combined recruitment experience in this vibrant community, helping ambitious Start-Up and SME businesses grow, right though to partnering well established blue chip names like Carl Zeiss.

We are able to source candidates across the sector, whilst leaning on our experience in electronics and FMCG to transfer “fresh blood” in. Our association with the SLA and other key partner and networking groups, allows us to offer highly skilled talent from NXD / board level, down to mid-management and graduate entry.


Our ethos is to inspire, challenge and innovate – three things we aspire to achieve throughout our organisation.  As well as delivering bespoke recruitment solutions through award-winning brands, we are passionate about inspiring and enabling future leaders.

ESS Holdings is an enabler of talent and operates a business incubator and start-up hub in Edinburgh, where a number of our companies have started out as spin-outs and grown to become successful brands in their own right with the help of our financial and business support.

To date, we have invested more than £70k in niche recruitment start-ups.  We also believe in talent retention and development and are committed to being a National Living Wage employer.
