Jenny Downing

Which team do you work in?

Clinical Research, Medical Affairs and Regulatory Affairs 

Which area do you specialise in?

My focus is Senior Clinical Operations and Senior Medical Affairs

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

I try to keep up to speed with industry news sites and blogs but really the majority of helpful and interesting information comes through the conversations I have with my candidates and clients. 

What's your favourite film and why?

I wasn't sure whether to admit this as it's really not very "cool" but...Four Weddings and Funeral is my absolute favourite, always makes me smile!!

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

The ability to disapparate like Harry Potter from one place to another with the click of a finger. It would make seeing friends and family (and candidates and clients) who live all over the country so much easier, particularly now I have two little people to transport too!

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

On a professional level - 12 years within recruitment specifically working within the pharmaceutical industry gives me the knowledge and overarching understanding of Clinical Research to really understand my clients and candidates' needs, regardless of functional area they sit within.

On a personal level - I have done a skydive in NZ, ridden an elephant in Laos, Scuba Dived in Vietnam, swam with sharks in Thailand (small ones!) and sailed a tall ship around the Caribbean (by sailed I mean I sat drinking cocktails while the crew sailed it).
