About Star

With offices in Maidenhead, Manchester and Bath, Star are a full-service resourcing and outsourcing company aimed at delivering the best people for healthcare. They strive to achieve this by practising one simple methodology: listen, tailor and deliver.

The company was formed in 2002, when Tim Webster, Chief Operating Officer and Lucy O’Neill, General Manager, began recruiting for direct to headcount pharma vacancies from Tim’s living room in High Wycombe.

Since then Star has grown significantly, and in 2015 the business was acquired by Uniphar Group plc, a leading pre-wholesaler, wholesaler and provider of services in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector in the Republic of Ireland.

Star’s focus on their team, their dedication to high standards and passion for providing a great work-life balance means they are able to attract and retain some of the very best recruitment consultants.
