Industrial Sciences

As we know, there is a significant skills shortage and an ageing workforce within the sector. We're tackling this challenge to help clients identify and select the ‘high potential’ leaders of the future. These are often hard-to-find middle managers, with the experience and energy required to thrive in your organisation.

We have extensive experience working across the Industrial Sciences industry, in particular in chemicals, petrochemicals and manufacturing. We are particularly successful in helping companies of all shapes and sizes with senior technical and senior commercial searches.

Chemicals and Petrochemicals

We work closely with distributors, manufacturers, refineries, and trading arms, across a variety of disciplines. We work on regional sites in the UK, in numerous countries in Europe, and in North America.

Since 2014, the Hybrid Search team has led on more than 30 searches for eight of their client’s global businesses - one of the largest global chemical manufacturers in the world.


We recruit a defined range of talent including supply chain and procurement managers, asset engineers, logistics managers, ‘head of’ roles, and S&OP and IT managers. Our manufacturing experience stretches across Europe with OEMs, SMEs and global corporations looking to grow and develop their businesses. We have completed successful searches in the UK, Denmark, Spain, Germany, France and Poland.

We're really proud of how we helped a leading manufacturer in the North East of England in successfully placing 9 high quality people in an organisation: Manufacturing a massive restructure

Life Sciences

The life sciences industry is a sector which is continuously innovating and developing across biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical technology and consumer healthcare. We have wide-ranging experience across the healthcare sector as a whole. Searching and placing managers and senior interim managers across the NHS, private healthcare, and pharmaceuticals sectors, as well as specialist fields like medical devices.

We have searched and delivered a range of roles for clients, including Head of Sales, Head of Nursing, a number of theatre managers, commercial operations and lab managers, clinical directors and medical directors.

"There are similarities with all the sectors we work in - people challenges, organisational structures, ‘difficult to fill’ senior technical and commercial roles. We utilise our understanding of the recruitment landscape across all the sectors, and cherrypick the best talent for you".
