The 27th Annual EuroMeeting will take place in Paris on April 13-15, 2015.

The DIA EuroMeeting 2015 is a unique microcosm of the entire drug development process, ranging from the policy environment to market uptake and regulation. It attracts attendees & exhibitors from all stages of the value chain, ranging from those conducting original R&D to the patients benefiting from innovation.

CK Clinical celebrates 10th anniversary

In 2004 Jonathan Hart-Smith established CK Clinical, a clinical recruitment company that works with global industry leaders to place the right people in the right jobs. Ten productive years on, the business is part of the CK Group which includes a further three recruitment companies specialising in the pharmaceutical, scientific, engineering and technical sectors. As one of the four divisions of the CK Group, CK Clinical has seen its turnover grow rapidly and its client base expand to include many of the top thirty pharmaceutical companies in the UK.

In the 10 years since its inception CK has excelled in its market through its pioneering use of social media in the recruitment process, branching into Europe and branching into outsourcing -areas where so many competitors failed to progress.

Jonathan Hart-Smith, Managing Director of CK Group said:

We set out to be the leading clinical recruitment consultancy in the UK with transparency being the cornerstone of everything we did.  Ten years on I could not be prouder of what we have achieved. ”

Loyalty and a commitment to customer service have made a huge contribution to the long term success of CK. Customer retention is at the forefront, with many leading pharmaceutical companies who have worked with CK Clinical since its inception still continuing to use our services.

Ben Traies, Director of CK Clinical has said:

Taking over as director of CK Clinical in 2010 was, for me, about maintaining the reputation and high standards of customer service. As a consequence of the team’s hard work and attention to detail, CK Clinical has gone from strength to strength. 

2014 has seen the business excel in its ideas and initiatives by branching into market access and health economics. In a similar way, 2015 holds exciting prospects for CK Clinical when we expand into pharmaceutical sales and marketing, which we are very enthusiastic to begin.

Consequently, we would like to say a big thank you to all of our clients and staff, whose continued support enables CK Clinical’s performance as a company to be outstanding.
