KCR Placement’s Success in Providing Tailor-made Solutions for the Pharma Industry


Warsaw, 25 Aug 2015 – KCR Placement, a wholly owned subsidiary of contract research organization KCR S.A., has successfully grown into a well-established recruitment company over the first year of its activities. The company extended its clients’ portfolio and set up offices in Berlin, Warsaw and Prague. KCR Placement focuses on ‘fit for purpose’ staffing for pharma and biotech industries in Europe and the U.S.

“The first year of KCR Placement has been a great success and far exceeded our expectations. The team has grown into 7 qualified recruiters who successfully closed about 100 projects and built a considerable back-log for 2015 and 2016,” said Mike Jagielski, President & CEO of KCR and KCR Placement.

“The idea was born with having KCR CRO requirements in mind and in an effort to optimize our cost structure,” he continued. “We also thought it was time for a new business model which would optimize recruitment costs and respond to unjustified high recruitment fees in a world ruled by electronic search. Establishing KCR Placement was our ‘why not’ response to market needs and an aspiration to make a service and business model we are satisfied with available also to other organizations.”

KCR Placement was launched in April 2014. The company offers tailor made recruitment solutions providing permanent, temporary, contract and executive resourcing. “Our extensive database of candidates across Europe makes a great searching pool to assure that only the best talents are selected,” added Aneta Szewczyk, KCR’s Head of People Services, and Manager of the KCR Placement Team. “We offer our clients the most customized services thanks to our comprehensive understanding of the project requirements.”

The recruitment process of KCR Placement is carried out by two experts: the recruiter and the KCR practitioner, which guarantees the best match in terms of knowledge, skill sets, competences and cultural fit of the candidate.

“After the first year of activities at KCR Placement we can say that establishing the company was a risk worth taking. We see immense potential for resourcing services in pharma and biotech markets, therefore we remain fully committed to our plans to expand these operations further,” summarized Mr. Jagielski
