Principle Scientist


Fera Science is a global leader in research and supports the development of the agri-food supply chain. Building on shared recent successes and the appointment of a Growth Director and Head of Ecotoxicology, Eden was asked to support the search for a focused Principal Scientist with a brief to build strong relationships between research, academia and industry.

Our approach

Working side-by-side with Fera Science, a target list of more than 100 individuals was created and this consisted of large multi-national companies as well as research-driven SMEs.
In addition, in partnership, a detailed brief was generated to be shared with prospective candidates which sought to give further insight into the business as well as the strategic plan for this role.
Eden’s bespoke approach, consisting of engagement, understanding and listening, led to a longlist of 12 individuals who were all selected for thorough assessment.

The results

Following a detailed assessment with each candidate, we selected 6 individuals for interview. Through our coaching, support and close collaboration we were able to successfully offer and appoint a Principal Scientist to commence a role in January 2022.
