Maurice Thornton


Hi. I'm Maurice, and I'm the Founder of headcount recruitment & research, based in Zürich, serving the Healthcare & Life Sciences industry.

We're here to help you find the right people (that's the recruitment part) or to find out about the right people (that's the research part).

So, a little about me - I earned degrees in Toxicology and Psychology at the University of Toronto, and subsequently worked in various roles (as a preclinical researcher, Sales Rep, Staffing Lead, "headhunter"), across different sectors (pharma, biotech, public health, agency recruitment), in many different parts of the world (Canada, Ireland, Australia, Switzerland). My combined education and experience have given me the insights required to understand today's talent marketplace and as a result, allow me to best support my clients.

If you'd like to know more about headcount recruitment and research, please check us out at; if you'd like to get in touch with me directly please do so under

I look forward to hearing from you.
