Why did you decide to enter in the recruitment industry?
I always enjoyed the communication element of any of my previous roles, I like interacting with diverse teams and learning new things. This in combination with my background in Biotechnology and work experience led me to wanting to go into recruitment.
What was it about healthcare that appealed to you?
Every day I learn about new breakthrough therapeutics and medical devices that are being developed, that will have far reaching implications for patient health and longevity across the world!
I believe in the next few years healthcare will be evolving within the scope of personalised medicine, including Precision Therapy, Biologics and Genomic Research which will change the landscape of healthcare, opening up many new exciting fields and roles.
"She was a lovely candidate and it was very satisfying being able to help her."
Tell us about your most memorable role placement. What were the challenges and achievements?
My first placement.
Candidate called who's contract was about to end and she was wondering what roles she could apply for. She didn't realise how good her experience was until we got chatting about it. Submitted her to two jobs.
She was nervous because she hadn't interviewed in 5 years. We did a mock interview and I suggested she make some changes to her CV to cater it better to the roles.
She did both interviews. One rejected and one said yes. They also matched her salary and gave her some time off to spend time with her family before the new job. She was a lovely candidate and it was very satisfying being able to help her.
"...I have genuine connections with the candidates I speak to!"
What education background do you have that helps you with your current job?
Having a Degree in Biology and a Master's in Biotechnology, I always been a science nerd. Moreover, having worked in industry for over 2 years, I have an innate interest in Life Sciences and feel I have genuine connections with the candidates I speak to!
"My motivation comes from being able to help people."
Why a client or candidate should work with you?
My motivation comes from being able to help people. That works for both clients and candidates.
I take a genuine interest in people's needs and do everything in my power to deliver. Having a science background I also find the industry area interesting so I like to hear people's stories.
Your Advice for Candidates
Find a company who's values are aligned with your own! Team culture and management is just as important as the day to day of a role and the impact on society you will have. Ultimately, the happier you are, the better you will perform in the role and this should never be sacrificed.
