Based in heart of the Knowledge Quarter, the London BioScience Innovation Centre (LBIC) is home to more than 50 life science and biotech companies, including startups and more established businesses.

LBIC were interested in collaborating with LIFT to recruit more talented local people for their roles, and to  better connect with the local community.
LIFT worked with the LBIC team to create a Life Science insight session for residents, which included a tour of the space, visits to employers including MSD and a presentation about entry level routes into the sector. We then supported them to recruit a part time Sterilisation and Waste Technician, guiding them throughout the whole application process, and offering advice to  applicants. A Hackney resident gained the role and continues to develop within the growing company.

“The LIFT programme provided an easy process for our recruitment, resulting in a very high calibre of candidates for the role. We would highly recommend working with the team at LIFT and would work with them again if further recruitment is required. The experience has been very positive. It would be great to see the programme extended beyond the current fixed term as we would happily work with them for future recruitment opportunities."
