About Us

IDBS helps research and development (R&D) teams around the world make discoveries that have the potential to transform the lives of populations worldwide.

Our advanced scientific informatics platform, The E-WorkBook Cloud, enables organizations to securely capture, manage, share and gain insight from their structured and unstructured data.
Our diverse customer list includes 22 of the top 25 global pharmaceutical companies, and other R&D-driven organizations in biotechnology, agricultural sciences, chemicals, consumer goods, energy, food and beverage, and healthcare.

Privately held since 1989, IDBS joined Danaher's Life Sciences platform at the end of 2017. IDBS will help provide the foundation for a portfolio of life sciences informatics and knowledge management solutions, within Danaher, that will accelerate the speed of discovering, developing and producing new drugs and therapies.

IDBS is an equal opportunity employer.  We evaluate qualified applicants without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, marital status, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other characteristic protected by law.


IDBS is on an exciting growth journey and to support that growth we have an opportunity for a temporary HR Manager to join the team in our Guildford, Surrey office and cover maternity leave.

You’ll be a commercially minded HR professional, capable of acting as a business partner by embedding corporate (Danaher) and IDBS HR strategy and providing professional HR guidance and coaching to relevant internal client groups to drive business growth. 

As we’re growing, you’ll be partnering with Danaher’s talent acquisition team to source, interview and hire talent into key areas such as software engineering and scientific consulting. You’ll also support the development of all our employees through the delivery of defined HR training programs in areas such as D+I, performance management, talent development and succession planning.

To be successful you’ll need strong project management skills, excellent HR knowledge and a willingness to roll up your sleeves and champion all aspects of the employee lifecycle in this generalist role.

Although this role is fixed term for one year, as IDBS is growing this opportunity could lead to career growth either within our business or the broader Danaher family.
