Created by the Oxbridge Biotech Roundtable, Golgi is the world’s first online platform dedicated to improving the recruiting ecosystem specifically within healthcare and life sciences startups and SMEs. We do this by connecting companies at the bleeding edge of these industries directly to highly skilled candidates from across OBR’s 30,000-strong global network.
In addition to matching exceptional candidates with exciting startup and SME careers, Golgi is aimed at improving the ecosystem by empowering both the nascent companies and jobseekers in our network to continuously grow and learn (both about the recruitment process, and about the industry itself).The Golgi platform thus consists of:
When you register for a Golgi account (as an applicant), you’ll be prompted to fill in your candidate profile with your personal details, work experience and education history for the first time.
Try and provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date information possible when filling in your profile – this ensures you’ll look your best to any companies who receive your applications or view your profile (meaning they’re all the more likely to progress your application to the next stage, or invite you to apply for their positions!).
If you wish to edit any of your profile details at a later time, simply visit the profile editing page by selecting the ‘Edit Candidate Profile’ option on the account dropdown list (visible in the top right hand corner of the page, when logged into your Golgi applicant account).
Your profile is only visible to yourself, and companies that you have submitted an application to.
Note: The profile editing page can be accessed by selecting the ‘Edit Candidate Profile’ option from the account dropdown list (visible in the top right hand corner of the page, when logged into your Golgi applicant account).
You can view the status of your applications via the ‘Application History’ page - accessed via the account dropdown list (visible in the top right hand corner of the page, when logged into your Golgi applicant account).
Golgi provides two strategies to match your vacancies with the perfect candidate from our network:
You’ll need to be logged into your Golgi company account in order to submit a job posting. The process of posting a job is as follows:
We have to insist that all roles submitted are based in startups and SMEs within healthcare and the life sciences.
This is because Golgi offers a very targeted approach, with a targeted audience. OBR’s 30,000-strong network is made up of people whose skill sets – and interests – lie within healthcare and the life sciences, and it is the needs of the applicants and companies specifically within these areas that Golgi was created to address.
Whilst posted jobs will appear on the ‘Current Vacancies’ page, and will be accessible to candidates via the search / filter options on this page.
However, Golgi also offers additional ‘feature’ packages for those looking to improve the visibility of their postings to the Golgi jobseeker community and beyond – in order to receive more applications, faster – and attract the attention of top candidates.
These are as follows:
Featured Job (+$49 / job)
Job Spotlight (+$99 / job)
These features may be:
All job posts are reviewed by the Golgi team before they are made visible on the board. This process will take no longer than 24 hours after job submission.
Submitted jobs postings may be edited or deleted at any time by selecting the ‘Manage Jobs’ option on the account dropdown list (which is visible in the top right hand corner of the page, when logged into your employer Golgi account).
Simply find the relevant job posting in the current jobs table – the ‘edit’ and ‘delete’ buttons are visible on the right hand side of the table.
Since we’re looking to enhance the process of recruiting for small and medium-sized companies, posting jobs on the Golgi platform is completely free.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any custom needs .
Golgi offers two feature packages for those looking to enhance the visibility of their basic job posting. Please see “What does ‘featuring’ a job entail?” for more information.
The prices for featuring jobs are as follows:
When a candidate applies to one of your vacancies, you will receive an email notification to the email address you used to create your Golgi Jobs account.
This will contain the details of the application, including:
You can also review the details of the applicants to each of your positions via the applicant management page (see the question below).
Previous applicants can be viewed and managed via the applicant management page – this is accessed by selecting the ‘Manage Applicants’ option from the account dropdown list (located in the top right hand corner of the page, when logged into your employer Golgi account).
Here, you’ll be able to:
Golgi is aimed at connecting companies directly with high-quality candidates from our network – thus, if you wish to invite an applicant to interview (or extend an offer), you should reach out directly to that applicant via the email address they provided with their application.
Employer profiles are visible to all Golgi account holders.
There are several possible approaches to ensure more candidates view (and apply to) your vacancies:
Of course! Whilst bringing great people onboard is a crucial contributing factor to the future success of any company, we realize that many small companies are more preoccupied with preparing for the next round of funding than thinking about the best way to present their companies – and vacancies – to potential new hires.
We’re here to help. The Golgi team has substantial experience in polishing the content of company profiles and vacancies to make them shine, and we’d be very happy to assist you in adjusting any company information or job postings you submit to Golgi. This will help ensure you do justice to your company, and attract the best possible candidates your way.
Please do reach out to the Golgi team with a rough draft of your vacancy at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll take it from there.
Don’t worry. You won’t always find the right candidate overnight - it usually takes time and patience to find the right person for the job. If your listing expires and you haven’t found who you were looking for, you can always republish your posting (see the link in the email we’ll send you at this time).
