We Believe InTransparency and Ethics
At BioTalent, we understand the importance of conducting business in one of the most highly regulated sectors globally in a transparent and ethical way. Indeed, we embrace this as an opportunity to ensure gender equality, social diversity, and inclusion throughout our entire business—from our internal policies to the services we offer.
From a philanthropical point of view, BioTalent is affiliated with several charitable organisations. These include:
Ex-Military Careers– is a social enterprise offering employment and training courses to veterans. Every year, 24,000 skilled service men and women leave the armed forces with very little guidance on how to re-enter civilian life. Ex-Military Careers aims to bridge the gap between military and civilian life through ongoing employment support and mentoring.
As part of this commitment, employees of BioTalent are encouraged to dedicate time to help veterans with pro bono “back to work” initiatives, including CV writing classes, interview preparation, and career guidance.

Student Minds – a charity established to help students, service users, professionals, and academics to develop new and innovative ways to improve the mental health of students. Nearly 50% of young people enter Higher Education, but, for many, university is the first time living independently away from established networks of family support. In adjusting to the student lifestyle, many students struggle to maintain healthy day-to-day routines and experience academic, social, and financial pressures. In fact, roughly a third of students report psychological distress = during these formative years. Anxiety and depression are the most commonly experienced mental illness in the student population, but students also experience eating disorders, self-harm, OCD, bipolar disorder, psychosis, and personality disorders. Student Minds’ aim is to empower students and members of the university community to develop the knowledge, confidence, and skills to look after their own mental health, support others, and create change, so that all in higher education can thrive.
