Our Approach

Our approach to projects ensures that we deliver the right results in the right way for all the projects we support.

We are a group of seasoned consultants and directors in the life science sector who have been around the block a bit! We have seen it all and we know what is truly innovative in your product or service offering.

We have handled, designed, and managed more robust research projects than you have had hot dinners and have the confidence to apply these methods pragmatically and compliantly without using a hammer to crack a nut, or losing sight of the commercial goal or research question.

We have reached the stage in our careers where the next step on the corporate ladder is less motivating than seeing the sparks that fly from connections and insights that generate real success and make a positive impact across the life science industry.

By collaborating with Gatehouse ICS, you have the experience of a large consultancy, with an approach and budget tailored to be accessible to all.

We value our blended team, supporting entry level staff and developing them alongside our project director team.

Natural Networkers

We cannot help ourselves, it’s what we love doing best - connecting good people with great ideas, products and services, particularly in the science and innovation domains. We are extremely proficient at lead generation and stakeholder engagement for interview research, drawing on our extensive global network day in, day out and we love it!

Natural Communicators

We know there is always a motivating narrative- a story to be told- even behind the most complex data or research propositions. That narrative is key for connecting you to the right people and distilling the insights needed for success. It is also key for our relationship with you, to help us journey together towards success.

Natural Investigators

Call us nosey, but we thrive on the sleuthing nature of identifying the right connections and insights to maximise the success of innovations and innovators. For us, it is never just a numbers game- we want to see the sparks that fly from GOOD insights and connections. We are in this for the thrill of innovation, the furtherance of science and the meaningful impact that can have on individuals and society.

Naturally Pragmatic

Let's face it, we've been around the block a bit! We know and are experienced in compliant and robust methodological standards for lead generation and desk/interview based market research. However, we will never use a hammer to crack a nut. We know no two challenges are the same so always keep the commercial question front of mind and use principles of good research applied pragmatically to your budget/purpose.

But just who are we?

Meet The Team

Positive Corporate Social Impact

To us, people are the most important thing. For us, that means our customers and employees, but also our local community in South Wales.

Gatehouse ICS is based in Ammanford, South Wales, where there is a higher than UK average percentage of school leavers known not to be in education, employment or training (NEET).

To boost the local economy, one of the industries the Welsh Government has chosen to focus on is health innovation (life sciences). That is, the thriving commercial industry around health that exists above and beyond healthcare delivery from the NHS.

This industry sector in Wales employs around 11,000 people in over 350 companies and this pool of potential jobs is growing as a result of this focus and investment. These innovations require support from consultancy and specialist professional services, such as those provided by Gatehouse ICS.

We provide opportunities for local people in these exciting and future-proof careers through an internship/entry level program offering learning within a real work setting supported by our experienced team.
