What Our Clients are Saying


Check out a video testimonial from one of our top recruiters: Anthony Saia Video

“I have had the pleasure of working with Flynn Life Sciences for the past year. During this year, FLS has sourced more than 30 contract Clinical Operations, Study Start Up and Trial Master Files professionals at various levels for my team. FLS has identified and qualified experienced contractors quickly, and has been very responsive to any issues that have arisen. I would highly recommend FLS to biopharmaceutical companies to supplement your permanent clinical trials management staff.”
– Head of Study Management, Boston biotechnology company

Mark and his team are efficient, friendly, professional, and understand the importance of differentiating service to their clients. The FLSG team takes the time to understand our culture, our nuances, and the little things that are important to us that go way beyond a candidates skills to ensure we have the perfect all around fit for our company. FLSG is one of my go-to recruitment firms and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a true partner in staffing.”

“During my career as a software engineer in the Boston area, I have had the opportunity to work with a few of Boston’s premier recruiting firms. My interaction with Flynn Life Sciences Group has been the most effective experience among them all. Whereas some other firms may shuffle prospective applicant resumes to employers, Flynn LSG associated prospective applicants with hiring managers that can work well with both parties. Anthony Saia, my recruitment contact at Flynn, was particularly diligent in following my case and tracking my process through the recruitment cycle from beginning to end. I highly recommend Flynn LSG to other professionals seeking placement within the BioTech and IT sector within the Greater Boston Area.”
-Genomics Software Engineer

“Flynn Life Sciences helped me to find a prestigious position at a fantastic company as a computational biologist before I had even defended my dissertation. They listened carefully to my skills and interests, and represented me well. I feel that they really went to bat for me in terms of obtaining compensation, and in general making the transition easy for me. I’m keeping Flynn Life Sciences on my short list of people to call if ever the need arises.”
– Algorithm Developer-Computational Biology

“Working with Tim at Flynn Life Sciences group was a truly a unique pleasure. I had no experience with a recruiting company before, and while I was wanting to transition out of my current position, I didn’t expect or initially want help finding my next position. This made me a unique candidate, and not an ideal one, since I wasn’t sure I even wanted the job I was being matched with. I was naïve to the role of a recruiter as the go-between (for me and the company I was hired at), and I was skeptical the process would work for me. Despite that, Tim helped me understand and appreciate the process, which is now something I am extremely grateful for. Tim’s honesty, openness and friendly approach really turned this from a position that slightly piqued my interest, to something that has been a life-changing career move. I credit a lot of that not only to Tim’s ability to find me (it truly was a match made in heaven), but also to his patience with my non-traditional goals and approach, and to his ability to speak with me as if just honest, casual friends. He was really focused not just on finding a match for my position, but for finding the right match, and for that I am thankful he had the vision and trust to find me and supportively steer me through the process of obtaining this job.”
-Scientist, Cancer Genomics

“I highly recommend Flynn Life Sciences Group as a staffing consultant to anyone looking for growth opportunity or just a change in their career. I worked with them for many months looking into different opportunities that would be a good fit for my background. During this time I found them to be determined, available, and eager to assist in the interview/hiring process. I am very grateful that thanks to Flynn Life Sciences Group, now I am working for a fantastic company that was the perfect transition for the developmental growth of my career in Pharmacovigilance.”
– Sr. Pharamcovigilance Contractor

“I first encountered Flynn LSG when they presented me with an excellent candidate for an opening – the placement was so accurate that I made extra effort to enable hiring through them. 18 months later, they placed *me* in an position that he recognized as perfect for me better than I did! If they hadn’t been persistent, I would have missed it! If you’re looking for or looking to fill a technical pharma role in Boston, talk to Flynn LSG.”

“Mark Flynn recently helped me obtain a position in a global pharmaceutical company. The initial response from the company was delayed due to holidays and company shutdown. However, Mark was persistent in his follow-up. By the time the company responded, I had another offer in hand. Mark was able to push through the bureaucracy. He coordinated an interview within days and a competitive verbal offer within one week after the interview. Mark’s persistence and positive relationship with the human resources personnel at the company made it happen. Thanks Mark!”
