You’re Recruiting


Star is a full service resourcing and outsourcing company.


We deliver great people, insight and commercial outcomes for pharmaceutical and healthcare companies in Ireland and the UK. View Star’s company brochure here

Star is part of the Uniphar Group, leading wholesaler and service provider for the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors in Ireland with a turnover in excess of €1.2bn. Uniphar’s investment in Star’s people, infrastructure and analytics allows Star to listen, tailor and deliver to more customers while preserving Star’s strengths – great people and customer experience. Customers enjoy the resources of a large organisation with the care and precision of a smaller company.

In addition to excellence with headcount resourcing, dedicated teams and vacancy management, Star Outsourcing now delivers great people and insight for syndicated, call centre, hot spot, market access, retail pharmacy and key account management teams; we’re also the only Recruitment Process Outsourcing (‘RPO’) provider in Ireland and the UK to focus on the healthcare market exclusively.

Each RPO solution is tailored to the client but typically, an appointed specialist from Star becomes a Vendor Manager, a fully integrated part of a client’s team and expert in their business.   The Vendor Manager is 100% accountable for all recruitment and associated tasks including PSL management, assessment procedures and feedback. Clients benefit from the resourcing power of a large PSL (but with no management responsibility), an increase in the quality of hires, cost and time efficiencies, greater indemnity from industry regulations and enhanced productivity from managers relinquished from recruitment tasks.

Our award-winning culture attracts superior talent and engenders industry-leading retention

Star is the UK’s most preferred recruitment agency and joint first CSO, as ranked by the pharma industry in Pf’s Company Perception, Motivation and Satisfaction survey, which benchmarks the pharma industry’s thoughts on remuneration, motivation, satisfaction and recruitment. Star’s also a Gold Standard Investors in People organisation, a big achievement as only 7% of IIP organisations accomplish this standard.

Award-winning support

Star’s business support team won ‘Best Back Office Support Team’ at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s (REC) ‘Institute of Recruitment Professionals’ awards ceremony, December 2013. The team was commended for its customer focus, collaborative working and problem solving, and commitment to innovation. Bolstered now by Uniphar’s world class infrastructure, Star is able to provide award winning support on an even bigger, better scale.
