Cambridge-based Costello Medical works with a wide range of clients, including the most successful pharmaceutical and medical technology companies, patient and public health bodies, and charitable organisations, to deliver medical communications and health economic services.

There is an office in Manchester and bases further afield include the USA, China and Singapore. Founded in 2008, Costello Medical helps clients with clinical trial and real-world data analysis; health technology assessments; market access solutions; publications services and literature reviewing; and it has teams of scientific staff with expertise in the specific sectors of MedTech, rare diseases and the public sector.

Costello Medical aims to provide a fun, friendly and innovative workplace in which the very best people strive to deliver the highest standards of quality. In 2020, the agency won three-star Best Companies accreditation for the fifth consecutive year and said it was “even more proud than usual of this accolade in a year when how we work and engage with each other has been challenged in so many ways”.

The leadership team made the decision to be completely transparent with the 204 staff during the coronavirus crisis and the whole company was kept informed of any decisions that had to be made.

Employees recognised how lucky Costello was not have to utilise the government's Job Retention Scheme. The responsibility both collectively and individually of ensuring the agency could maintain its success, so it could retain and create jobs, and continue to give back, was not lost on people either.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

95% of staff agreed

The leader of this organisation runs this organisation based on sound moral principles

The senior management team was developed internally and plays an active role in supporting talent and opportunity by investing time in those they manage. Leaders are expected to care about the wellbeing of those around them and to create a collegiate atmosphere. To support this, Costello regularly runs in-house leadership training sessions.

Fair Deal

67% of staff agreed

I feel I receive fair pay for the responsibilities I have in my job

Previous Best Companies feedback identified Fair Deal as an area for improvement. Specifically, the survey identified that satisfaction was lower among senior groups. Following this, Costello conducted a review which involved salary benchmarking research and was pleased to see the Fair Deal score increased by 6% in the 2021 survey across the board.

Giving Something Back

98% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

Staff donated money that would have been spent on items such as biscuits to local charities supporting foodbanks, and those helping older people who may have struggled with loneliness throughout the pandemic. Where possible employees were encouraged to continue to fundraise, with the company matching donations.
