The wonderful world of microbiology represents countless opportunities for the life sciences, and for a global humanity. The potential for life-altering discovery and drug development is extraordinary in the microbiology space, and alongside being a genuinely fascinating field of work, it has a direct impact on our everyday lives.
In the last few years alone, microbiologists have discovered a new control system for synthetic genes, unveiled new methods of extracting more oil from vegetables, and found that bacteria in cow stomachs can break down plastics. The list goes on and on, but suffice to say, there’s a new realm of discovery around every corner in this area of the life sciences.
Being a vast field comprised of hundreds of different roles and responsibilities, microbiology is home to many amazing job opportunities. From analysts and engineers to technicians and consultants, quality control officers, lab assistants and senior microbiologist jobs, there’s like something for any technically-minded, curious, science lover.
The possibilities are endless in the world of microbiology, provided that companies can secure the right talent. This is much easier said than done however, especially when the talent market is highly competitive, buoyant, hard to navigate, and short on candidates, building impactful teams becomes extremely difficult. It’s not the like the talent doesn’t exist, because it certainly does – it’s just a matter of finding it.
This discovery process, combined with the interview stage, the onboarding, the training, the probation and countless other factors, makes recruiting an expensive and time-consuming endeavour.

Life Sciences in London
London is overflowing with opportunity for those wishing to flourish in the wonderful world of the life sciences. Aside from being the best city in the world, (probably) London boasts some of the top bioscience courses found anywhere, such as the Pharmacology programme at UCL, or the Medicine course at Imperial College. The life sciences are closely intertwined with London’s long history of meaningful advancement and discovery, and the vast array of exciting life science jobs reflect this.
Suffice to say, you can find plenty of opportunities through the life sciences in London. The market is thriving, and London is uniquely positioned to lead the charge. We have seen a megalithic surge in the industry’s popularity and visibility in the post-COVID climate, and a rise in popularity means more funding and even more opportunity for development. The life sciences consistently stand at the forefront of discovery, of healthcare, societal wellbeing, and the future of a global humanity, making for a truly exciting field of work.
In fields as impactful as life sciences, (of which there are not many) consistent development is critical. For businesses to remain relevant, sustainable, desirable, and effective in what is undoubtably a fast-moving industry, placing an emphasis on facing the future should be part of the day plan. Some of the biggest names in the life sciences field operate out of London and the surrounding areas, (AstraZeneca, Quell Therapeutics, Touchlight, Pulmocide) and there are plenty of visionary startups bursting into life too, marking a fantastic opportunity for anyone hoping to make an impact as they grow alongside a high-potential enterprise.

We may be a London staffing agency, but we have a positively global outlook. Our talent network spans the planet.
