Imogen Simpkin

  • Position: Vice President - Head of SciPro West Coast

​My name is Imogen and I currently head up the Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical team in Los Angeles, servicing West Coast-based clients.

My team and I offer hiring assistance throughout the drug development process; from Discovery to Commercial with each consultant operating in a designated specialist market area.

With a true understanding yet unique approach to recruitment, I have developed an extensive network of qualified Executives with a proven track record with placing with small to medium-sized organizations across the West Coast. This accompanied with my proactive approach to find the best talent on the market for my clients.

I partner with HR teams and line managers to not only understand the business’ needs but also to understand the cultural fit to ensure the perfect fit for both the organization and individual. I also utilize my in-depth knowledge of the industry, therapeutic areas and market trends to work together with organizations to match their needs requirements.

I appreciate that all organizations are different which is why my approach is tailored uniquely dependent on the organization’s goals. This includes my interest to network within the industry whilst being flexible around busy schedules.

Why SciPro and the life sciences sector?

I really wanted to work within a sector that was giving back and ultimately improving people’s lives. SciPro does that not only with the candidates and clients we represent however also with the people that they in turn impact.

Something else…

I love to socialize, read (I’m often known to finish a book in one sitting if it’s a real page-turner) and also to cook! I also love to travel, I hope to go to all 50 states and I am currently on 12!

Sr. Marketing Manager - Candidate testimonial

"​In late 2019, Imogen Simpkin at SciPro reached out to me via LinkedIn about an exciting opportunity and ultimately helped me achieve my next position within the Life Science industry. Imogen provided the best recruiting experience I have had. She was in frequent communication with me throughout the entire process and always provided a status and set the expectation of when I would hear back next, and I always did. She was especially considerate by keeping me in the loop even during the Holiday break while we were all on PTO.Imogen was thorough in making sure not only that my skills matched the role but that the company and culture matched my background and personal work philosophy. I felt incredibly prepared for each step of the interview process. I had been searching for my next opportunity for a few months and was used to hearing from many recruiters and then having them disappear without explanation. Imogen is a breath of fresh air, and I felt she truly cared about matching me with the right role, which has turned out to be a dream fit for me. I would recommend her and SciPro to any Science Professionals seeking to level up."
