Star is part of the Uniphar Group, leading wholesaler and service provider for the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors in Ireland with a turnover in excess of €1.2bn. Uniphar’s investment in Star’s people, infrastructure and analytics allows Star to listen, tailor and deliver using a broader variety of outsourced solutions while preserving Star’s strengths – great people and customer experience. In addition to excellence in headcount resourcing, dedicated teams and vacancy management, Star Outsourcing  delivers great people and insight for syndicated, call centre, hot spot, market access, retail pharmacy and key account management teams; we’re also the only Recruitment Process Outsourcing (‘RPO’) provider in the UK to focus on the healthcare market exclusively.  Our customers enjoy the resources of a large organisation with the care and precision of a smaller company.

Star also has the ability to leverage the services provided by the Uniphar family of companies including multi-channel account management, benchmarking, managed access, nursing services and non-personal sales and marketing services. 

Our award-winning team and culture attracts the best candidates

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

Award winning support

Star’s business support team won ‘Best Back Office Support Team’ at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s (REC) ‘Institute of Recruitment Professionals’ awards ceremony, December 2013. The team was commended for its customer focus, collaborative working, problem solving and commitment to innovation. Bolstered now by Uniphar’s world class infrastructure, Star is able to provide award-winning support on an even bigger, better scale.
