I'm very happy to recommend ERAPS as a resource for finding amazing, well-matched, executive talent. They know the industry and specifically the regulatory landscape extremely well and were instrumental in finding us senior regulatory hires in a very tight hiring environment and in record time. They are thoughtful, pleasant, patient and fun to work with and I'd certainly call them again for future needs.

I've worked with ERAPS for many years on both sides of the hiring line, as a retained recruiter to help fill business critical positions in the commercial regulatory affairs space and once as my personal representative for a new career opportunity. In the case of the new career opportunity, we had discussed a laundry list of things that I was looking for and presented me with an opportunity that matched every criteria that we had discussed. They're either very lucky or very good and I know it's the latter. I'm looking forward to working with Brandan and ERAPS again in the future!

Head of U.S. Regulatory Affairs, Biotech company

I had the pleasure of working with ERAPS while going through a workforce-reduction layoff and it was a wonderful experience during a difficult and stressful time. They are patient, attentive and really know the regulatory affairs job market! Their years of experience, relationship-building approach and even-keeled demeanor were reassuring as I had not previously worked with a recruiter for a job-search...it truly was a partnered experience.

Brandan kept in contact with me throughout the whole process and beyond, giving solid and useful advice. I would highly recommend ERAPS for any candidate or company looking for a highly effective accomplished recruiting professional.

I had the good fortune of utilizing ERAPS to place me in a SVP leadership role. Their keen understanding of the client needs, whilst matching the skill sets and experiences of the candidate to align the right fit is second to none. They represent and support the candidate throughout the entire process, leverage their insights to create a win-win for the client as well as the candidate, which is rare within the recruiting realm. ERAPS is a first class recruiter!
