Welcome to VIDA

INSIGHT driven recruitment by CONNECTED specialists

Insight is not data. It’s delivered through knowledge and experience. Insight into the market, people, process and motivations.

Connected globally to clients, markets, candidates and advisors. Connected internally as a team of subject matter experts.

In a nutshell

VIDA operate across global sectors, with an experienced team of connected specialists immersed in their industry and network. Approaching projects with purpose, VIDA’s frank but agile approach to solutions, has supported innovative start-ups through to truly global organisations in their access to talent. 

Professionally informal (we have suits but don’t feel the need to wear them) -  our long term relationships and fast growing new ones all receive the same focus and energy in order to provide them the due diligence behind their people decisions

What we do

We are all about innovation with technology at its core. Our clients represent some of the most exciting start-ups and scale-ups that are disrupting the status quo and innovating to create new markets and value networks in life sciences and disruptive technologies globally.

What's important to us

Carbon Neutral…& beyond

We pledged to go Carbon Neutral in 2021 and sustainability is now in our DNA. But we wanted to go further than just making the necessary changes internally and add a bigger contribution. Our global client base means inevitable travel during recruitment processes by both candidates and clients can be extensive and as such comes with a big carbon cost.

Through developing a true market-leading solution we are now working with three global gold standard sustainable projects to offset the carbon impact of each recruitment process.

We will be asking our clients and partners to support us in this pledge and work with us to drive sustainable business practices.

Our Inclusion & Diversity Commitments

At Vida, we're all about people. We believe that every individual, regardless of their background, deserves to be respected and valued for who they are. We're committed to building a workplace that celebrates diversity and promotes inclusivity in everything we do. We actively seek out and welcome talent from underrepresented groups, recognising that diverse perspectives, experiences, and talents enrich our company.

Our hiring and promotion decisions are based on skills, behaviours and qualifications, without bias. We're also invested in our employees' growth and learning. We provide ongoing training to increase awareness of unconscious bias and promote inclusive behaviours, because we know that learning is a journey that never stops.

As a global recruitment business, we understand the importance of our role in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. We're strive to partner with clients who share our values so that we can support their efforts to build diverse teams that reflect the communities they serve.

At Vida, we're committed to creating a workplace where everyone feels like they belong, and we'll continue to make strides in our diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. After all, it's the people that make our company special, and we're dedicated to fostering an environment where everyone can thrive.

The VIDA TeamBuild model is specifically suited to companies with a need to hire quickly and frequently, helping you to hire high performing and brilliant teams. In scale up situations needs evolve and change regularly so an agile and dynamic partnership is required that delivers enhanced talent access but giving greater freedom about who you hire and when. It is an “on demand” solution with continued individual, company, data and marketing resources at hand throughout the project. Ultimately it gives our clients the best people when they need them at greater value.

VIDA Team Build

Disruptive technology only ever reaches its full potential when its brilliance is matched by the brilliance of the leadership team. Our VIDA Search solution, delivered by our most experienced leaders, takes a global and insight led approach to executive search, giving you access to the best talent to bring your technology to life. We partner seamlessly with you to track down the most gifted and in demand talent for your business critical and senior strategic roles, whilst at the same time providing you with the due diligence and data behind your hiring decisions.

VIDA Search

Do you want a talent crystal ball? Do you want to know who and where the talent is before you need it? Imagine then already having engaged this talent so they are ready and willing to come work for you when the time is right. A traditional recruitment model is reactive and time poor. Often this means going to market for a short period of time to establish what talent is available at that precise moment. However, this does not build a detailed picture of the potential candidates you could attract with a more proactive approach. VIDA Insight allows us to build that picture for our clients and enable them to make strategic hiring decisions.
