Surprised to discover the lack of a service offering careers consultancy exclusively to researchers, Martin Gooden established Trinity Scott in 2015 with support and encouragement from members of the research community.
Over the years, there have been various search-to-search and recruitment-to-recruitment firms catering for researchers at varying degrees. The complaint we hear most often about firms is that they are very transaction focused, simply wanting to place the researcher in a new role, whatever the role may be.
This is understandable, given that these companies are usually recruitment companies specialising in consultants more than researchers, and their focus is often on the fee rather than the candidate themselves.
By setting up a careers service dedicated purely to researchers, it allows us the opportunity to focus on you and your requirements, both short term and longer term: working with you strategically to maximise your career potential.
