Which team and area do you work/specialise in?
I work on the Drug Development team specialising in Quality (QA) and Supply Chain roles within the pharmaceutical, medical devices and consumer healthcare markets.
What are some of the typical roles you cover?
I cover all levels from Administration to Director level within QA, QC, Supply Chain, Procurement and Logistics.
What are the hot issues in your sector currently?
For both Quality and Supply Chain, Brexit is a huge topic at the moment. Clients and candidates I work with have been working extensively to organise contingency strategies to minimise the effects to cost of manufacture and speed of product delivery.
Who is your biggest idol / inspiration and why?
I have two. Firstly, my mum who is the strongest role model I have in my life. She has taught me the importance of independence, security and resilience. Secondly, I’d have to say Catherine Ryan who has proved that you can really have it all and a sense of humour.
What is your greatest fear?
Being unsafe – the thought of not being able to get out of a situation where you feel you might die. Safe to say, I will not be climbing Snowdon again!
How would your friends describe you in three words?
Independent, nurturing and fun
You’re stranded on a desert island – what one thing could you not live without?
A Swiss army knife so I can open coconuts, hunt and make a shelter
What’s makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?
I believe knowledge is power and I strive to learn as much about people and the industry as possible to build lasting relationships and produce the best results for candidates and clients.
