You’re Recruiting / About Star

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 great people, insight and commercial outcomes for pharmaceutical and healthcare companies in the UK and Ireland from offices in Bath, Maidenhead, Manchester and Dublin. Star’s tailored solutions include dedicated, syndicated, call centre, hot spot, market access, retail pharmacy and key account management teams, vacancy management, direct to headcount resourcing, consultancy and recruitment process outsourcing (‘RPO’).

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 in Star’s people, infrastructure and analytics 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.

Our award-winning culture attracts superior talent and engenders industry-leading retention

Star is 2016’s most preferred recruitment agency and most preferred CSO, as ranked by the industry in Pf’s Company Perception, Motivation and Satisfaction survey, which benchmarks the pharma industry’s thoughts on remuneration, motivation, satisfaction and recruitment. Star’s also a Gold Standard Investors in People organisation, a big achievement as only 7% of IIP organisations accomplish this standard.
