Case Study: Cpl NI partner with Norbrook to hire 50+ pharma staff


​Norbrook was established in 1969 and employs approximately 1600 employees, across 3 sites in Newry and 1 in Monaghan. They are one of the largest privately-owned Veterinary Pharmaceutical companies in the world supplying customers with an innovative range of products and brands across the globe.

In 2018 we partnered with them to improve their recruitment practices and manage their live recruitment processes. The specialised Cpl talent team provide end to end recruitment onsite in Norbrook across all business functions while also leveraging Cpl's databases and innovative sourcing & AI capabilities.

Recruitment for large pharmaceutical company in Northern Ireland

We quickly established an understanding of Norbrook’s talent goals and created a bespoke partnership package to:

  • Meet their hiring requirements.

  • Support them in reaching their growth targets for permanent positions.

We deployed a dedicated Cpl Onsite consultant who fully integrated into the Norbrook talent team and is supported by 3 members of the Cpl team within the branch network, each acting as an extension of the existing Norbrook talent team.

They fully manage and have ownership of recruitment areas onsite including advertising, sourcing, screening and interviewing of candidates in partnership with relevant hiring managers.

Through partnering with Cpl Norbrook have gained flexibility in their recruitment goals and can scale at ease to meet business requirements.


We are a trusted recruitment partner of Norbrook and have placed over 50 members of staff since the partnership began.
