Star delivers the best people for healthcare

In 2002 Star was Tim Webster and Lucy O'Neill, recruiting for direct to headcount pharma vacancies from Tim's living room in High Wycombe. Today, Star is a full service outsourcing and resourcing company that delivers sales, marketing, medical and clinical people for Pharma, Medical Devices & Technology, Clinical Research and Healthcare Communications businesses in the UK and Ireland from its offices in Bath, Maidenhead, Manchester and Dublin; Star's tailored solutions include dedicated and syndicated teams, vacancy management, direct to headcount recruitment, consultancy and master vendor.

A bigger, broader portfolio of outsourced services

In 2015 Star was acquired by Uniphar Group plc ('Uniphar'); Star operates as an independent business within Uniphar's Manufacturer Services division. Uniphar is a leading pre-wholesaler, wholesaler and provider of services in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector in the Republic of Ireland; Uniphar has a diverse customer base and an annual turnover in excess of € 1bn. Uniphar's investment and input powers the scale, depth and breadth of Star's portfolio of outsourced services while retaining what's best about Star - great people and customer experience. Star's goal is to become the UK and Ireland's market leader in healthcare outsourcing by delivering the best people and commercial outcomes to more customers with even greater flexibility.

A culture that attracts the best people

Our award winning culture and values attract the very best consultants, most talented people and hottest opportunities. Star is a Gold Standard 'Investors in People' organisation; this is a significant achievement as only 7% of all organisations achieve Gold accreditation and less than 1% of those are recruitment businesses. Star was ranked the 3rd best small company to work for by the Great Place to Work Institute's UK Best Workplaces Programme, 2012. In 2013 Star's business support team won 'Best Back-Office Support Team' at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation's 'Institute of Recruitment Professionals' awards ceremony. Since 2010 Star's been one of the industry's top 2 most preferred recruitment agencies and top 2 most preferred contract sales organisations, as ranked by respondents to Pf's 'Company Perception, Motivation and Satisfaction' survey.

Tried and tested methodology

Star's successful, 13 year heritage is driven by our simple methodology: listen, tailor, deliver. We listen to our customers, tailor our solutions to suit the situation and market, and deliver the best people and commercial outcomes.
