The Client

Jacobs is a global leader in providing technical, professional and construction services across a broad range of clients. With over 52,000 employees and an annual revenue of $13 billion, Jacobs turn abstract ideas into realities by delivering new solutions that solve some of the most important problems.


X4 Life Sciences partnered with Jacobs after their senior director in the London office recommended us to their project director in Milan who needed support with several vacancies.

The first assignment was to source an Italian speaking project manager with extensive pharmaceutical experience.

The Solution

The Italian market is notoriously very interconnected and many highly skilled candidates had already been contacted by Jacobs. Utilising our extensive networks throughout the engineering and life science sectors, we were able to head-hunt the perfect candidate in 2 weeks.

After the initial successful placement, we remained in close contact with the hiring manager in Milan and have since worked on a number of roles across Sweden and Switzerland.

The service you provided was excellent. You have full knowledge of the sector and provided the right skills that I was looking for. You followed-up all the actions closely and provided continuous feedback. This is really important and very valuable.
