Which team do you work in?

I work in the Regulatory Affairs team.

Which area do you specialise in?

I specialise in recruiting all levels of Regulatory Affairs professionals within pharma, healthcare and medical devices. 

How do you keep up-to-date with the issues in your sector?

Speaking to candidates is the best way to keep updated with changes in the market. I also like to read relevant industry press and relevant articles on LinkedIn. 

What's your favourite film and why?

Mrs Doubtfire - it's an all time classic and I pretty much know it word for word. I love a good thriller too, anything with a good twist at the end. Law Abiding Citizen with Gerard Butler is one of my faves. 

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

Pizza that makes you slim! 

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

I love watching pretty much any sport. I play netball twice a week and come from a footballing family, so have been taught how to do kick ups (my record is 21 without hitting the floor!) Work wise, I like to think I get to know candidates on a deeper level and really understand their drivers and motivations for moving to another company.
