Acumen Recruitment's specialist areas lie in the molecular biology and clinical diagnostics sales job markets.
Acumen recruits for positions in sales and marketing throughout the laboratory market, but its areas or specialisation are the life science / molecular biology and clinical / diagnostics job markets.
The founding Director, Linda Heath began her career in a UK molecular biology sales job. She progressed through an international molecular biology sales job to export management in the molecular biology market.
Throughout her career in recruitment she has maintained a special interest in the molecular biology and life science sales job market, and Acumen has always majored in this area as a result.
Acumen's Chairman, Kevin O'Donovan, has spanned both the life science / molecular biology and clinical / diagnostics markets in his career, having held sales and management jobs in both sectors before moving on to found and run companies in this market.
Besides his role in Acumen, he is currently non executive director for several companies in the life science, molecular biology and clinical diagnostics sectors.
The Acumen team's personal experience gives them in depth understanding of the sales and marketing job market in the molecular biology, life science and clinical diagnostics sectors.
