CK Clinical specialises in pharmaceutical, biotechnology and CRO recruitment and we are now one of the UK and Europe's leading recruitment consultancies.

We are currently recruiting on behalf of a Specialist Medical Diagnostic/Device company who have developed a smart diagnostic device with commercial pilots underway in select regions of the United States and the United Kingdom.

As a company, our client believes in digital health for everyone everywhere. They have created a new category of therapeutic product - the digital health feedback system - to allow people of all ages and cultures to power their own health, taking better care of themselves and each other. The company envisage two trends: First, there are more people with mobile phones than there are with access to clean, running water. Second, chronic, often lifestyle-related diseases like diabetes are the world's biggest healthcare problem, and our national health systems can't cope because they are optimized to treat the acute conditions prevalent decades ago.

The company's vision is to integrate medicines that treat chronic conditions with mobile technology - via their ingestible sensor - to make healthcare more accessible, manageable and innovative. They believe that by providing the right technology to individuals who deliver and receive healthcare, they can build a more effective healthcare system with new care paradigms focused on daily care and new information-based business models.

The company's manifesto:

  • They enable families to develop and sustain healthy habits
  • They help clinicians provide the best care possible
  • They are committed to helping everyone - rich, poor, old, young, near and far
  • They support communities committed to staying healthy
  • They deliver products that delight the customers we serve
