Iain Hopper

Director: Life Sciences & Health Technology

I lead the Life Sciences & Health Technology Practice at Bailey Fisher, working with a broad base of clients from early stage venture funded businesses through SMEs to larger corporates.  My particular focus is on C-suite hires at the convergence of health and technology. I am also a mentor at Accelerate@Babraham, a bioincubator and life science accelerator designed to support the earliest stages of new life science ventures.

Before joining Bailey Fisher in 2017, I specialised in senior level search and recruitment in scientific and technical markets, primarily within Life Sciences and Oil & Gas. I lived in both Sydney and London, where I worked for international executive search firms, developing my network throughout the UK, Europe, SE Asia, Australia and North America. Whilst living in Australia I focused on searches for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, recruiting for two of the world’s Top 5 companies in these sectors.

My aim has always been to provide my clients and candidates with the best possible service.  I like to work in partnership with my clients to build long-term relationships and add value to their business.  I’m pleased to bring together founders, investors and C-suite leaders from my network for regular dinners as part of our Life Sciences Leadership Series. Recently, I’ve hosted Accelerators: fast track to success & UK/China business opportunities.

Before moving into recruitment in 2008, I served for six years in the Royal Navy, as an Engineer.
