Clinical Logistics Executive Search Recruitment

We recognise the unique nature of the clinical logistics discipline, a segment that requires specific focus and dedicated expertise from recruiters and executive search agencies.


The clinical logistics sector is uniquely challenging, requiring creative thought leadership to overcome the many obstacles that confront the healthcare and life sciences logistics discipline. 

With the segment posting significant growth in recent years, in part due to the rising importance of transporting pharmaceuticals, vaccines and clinical trial samples, Spencer Riley have developed a dedicated clinical logistics recruitment team to place senior-level candidates into valuable leadership roles. 

From account managers and business development executives to dangerous goods specialists and regulatory affairs managers, we work closely with our global talent pool to identify the most capable and qualified individual for the role, creating lasting business relationships that deliver for clients and candidates alike. 

Accelerated time to hire, reduced administrative burden and better access to talent in this fast-growing discipline, all backed by our Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) service for clinical logistics businesses with continuing hiring demand - Spencer Riley's executive search specialists are here to help with it all.

Specialist recruitment for clinical logistics businesses

Clinical logistics has become an increasingly important segment as transporting samples, medicines and other environmentally sensitive supplies has become more commonplace. 

Research and Markets reported that in 2023, the global healthcare logistics market was worth around $84 billion (£65 billion) after one-year growth of 9.2%. With forecasted annual growth of 7.7% until at least2027, this value is set to rise to an estimated $113 billion. 

Within the sector, there are valuable niche segments. For example, Grand View Research valued the clinical trials supply & logistics services market at $3.5 billion in 2022, with growth predicted to average 7.5%per year for the rest of the decade. 

"Major drivers include the rising number of clinical trials and harmonisation of regulations, increasing R&D expenditure by pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms, and technological advancements in the supply chain," the analyst stated.

Maintaining a talent pipeline in rapid growth

With Grand View Research anticipating an increase in outsourcing of clinical trials logistics and supply chain services due to arise in in-house costs, there are substantial opportunities across the sector in the years to come. 

Spencer Riley help businesses - both those working directly in the life sciences sector and those that provide outsourced clinical logistics services - to maintain a sufficient workforce with talent and leadership at the highest levels. 

Our clinical logistics recruitment specialists advise on director-level, C-suite and senior managerial appointments, as well as related disciplines like sales director, project manager and client relationship executives for clinical logistics businesses. 

For companies that are experiencing continuing long-term growth, our Clinical Logistics Recruitment RPO service enables even closer integration, further reducing the admin burden on your organisation and cutting time-to-hire to an absolute minimum.
