South Korea is quickly emerging as a major hot spot and new frontier within the Global and Asia Pacific BioPharmaceutical industries. The South Korean BioPharmaceutical industry is relatively new and is identified as a strategic sector by investors and government growth incentives. Korean BioPharmaceutical companies have actively recruited US, Canadian, and European expatriate employees over the past 10 years to provide key leadership, scientific, and technical expertise to help grow this new industry. Working in South Korea provides a challenging yet exciting opportunity to set the standards of a true Global BioPharmaceutical industry with a proven track history of success.

We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to recruit expatriate employees with select BioPharmaceutical companies in Korea. The employees have received lucrative expatriate benefits packages including company paid housing, tax incentives on US Federal and Korean taxes, and international school tuition paid for children.

The feedback and stories I have received from candidates we placed has overwhelmingly been positive. They have shared incredible experiences about the success of the companies, the schools, friendliness of the Korean people, new friends & colleagues, and travels throughout the Korea & neighboring Asian countries.

We have also had the opportunity to visit Korea on multiple occasions to learn about the BioPharma companies, living areas, international schools and general country culture.
