Beyond Team

Our people are our strength, they drive us to be the best we can be. At Beyond Blue we, are characterised by curiosity – always asking ‘what if?’

With over 50 team members, in and outside the UK, we have a mix of colleagues from scientific, commercial and research backgrounds.

For nearly 20 years, we have been one of the UK’s leading independent pharmaceutical research agencies, collaborating with some the biggest and most respected healthcare companies across the globe.

As a business, we have always prioritised organic growth that is sustainable for our team: This ensures we maintain a strong value system of integrity, honesty and quality. As an independently owned business, we can take the time to nurture each individual and support a career in research that is right for them. As a result, many of our senior team have been with us for years and will, hopefully, be here for many years to come.

Beyond Values

Our values define who we are and how we work together. For us, they are as simple as A, B, C (D, E) !

These values are more than just words to us; they’re the heart and soul of our team’s culture and are celebrated ad hoc through us giving ‘kudos’ and through our quarterly awards and ongoing initiatives.

Be Adaptable: We thrive in the face of change, embracing new challenges with open arms.

Be Brave: We’re not afraid to take risks, pushing boundaries to achieve extraordinary outcomes.

Be Collaborative: Teamwork is our cornerstone; together, we achieve more than we ever could alone.

Be Determined: We’re relentless in pursuing our goals, never giving up when the going gets tough.

Be Empathetic: We understand the importance of listening, connecting and supporting one another.

Socials

We believe that a strong team is built not only through collaboration through our work, but also through shared experiences outside of it. That’s why we place great importance on our social events.

Our social gatherings aren’t just about having fun (although that’s a big part of it!). They serve a higher purpose in strengthening connections, encouraging creativity, meeting new team members, celebrating achievements and creating lasting memories.
