Why did you decide to enter in the recruitment industry?
I made the conscious decision to join the recruitment industry because I have a genuine passion for people and enjoy being an integral part of someone's career journey. My background in Biomedical Science allows me to bring my expertise to the life science sector, an area that has always piqued my interest.
"I like the impact that healthcare has on all communities."
What was it about healthcare that appealed to you?
The healthcare industry is multi-faceted, and I am driven to play my part in helping people gain access to quality healthcare. Being able to place individuals who contribute to the care of patients is a meaningful way to make a difference.
"I am glad that someone with great on the ground expertise was able to apply that to a national/global level."
Tell us about your most memorable role placement. What were the challenges and achievements?
All of my placements have been a source of pride for me as both candidates and clients have been satisfied. However, I was particularly thrilled when I was able to secure a specialist Rheumatologist in a pharmaceutical company. This niche area is not always serviced, and I am delighted that someone with valuable on-the-ground expertise was able to apply their skills to a national and global level.
What education background do you have that helps you with your current job?
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Science, and I previously worked in the Customer Service team of a large private pathology laboratory in London, before transitioning into healthcare recruitment. This background allows me to bring a unique perspective and understanding to the table.
"I do my very best to match like with like."
Why a client or candidate should work with you?
I firmly believe that the right work environment and culture exist for everyone. As a recruitment professional, I am passionate about helping people along their career paths and I approach every candidate and client interaction with integrity, empathy, and a strong work ethic.
