The Team

Joel Fresle

Hello! My name is Joel, I look after the Engineering function here at CPL Life sciences. I handle the recruitment of engineers into prestigious Manufacturing and Design organisations; this includes traditional Pharmaceutical operations, CDMOs, Medical Device Manufactures and up and coming Biotechs. I pride myself on prioritizing the human element, matching more than skills, I look to build cohesive and effective teams who can achieve more than the sum of their parts.

Throughout my career, I have always maintained an entirely up-front and honest demeanour with both my candidates and clients at every level. Trust and transparency form the foundation of every successful partnership, both are kept in mind with every step we take on a recruitment cycle. Whether we are working together to secure the dream job working on bleeding-edge technology, or looking for the ideal candidate to help build a collection of individuals into a team, there’s no safer set of hands to help craft your bespoke recruitment solution.

Steve Williams

Hi, I’m Steve and I work on our dedicated life sciences Engineering desk; I have worked in Recruitment for just over 5 years now and for me, nothing beats the feeling of helping someone to secure their perfect role!

I pride myself on clear communication and an efficient process with no unpleasant surprises. From the very first call I ensure everyone is aware of all steps involved and how we can create the best solution.

Life science Engineering has become a swift passion of mine and I truly believe we are uniquely positioned to support the industry. With experience and relationships dedicated to this niche industry, I take great pride in knowing we are true specialists within our field and can offer a practical, consultative approach.
