I started off my career in healthcare recruitment in 2015, where I joined a leading Pharmaceutical company and worked my way up to a senior position managing recruitment for the R&D business unit. I also have vast amount of experience in Commercial, Medical Devices and Clinical recruitment. I have worked with several large healthcare companies including Johnson & Johnson, MSD, Allergan and GE Healthcare leading recruitment and placing a number of Senior and Executive level candidates.
I most recently managed the Talent Acquisition function for a medium size specialist CRO recruiting and building teams across Europe and the US. I am passionate about working for a business that’s values are so aligned to mine … this is why I am really looking forward to being part of the Kaizen Life Sciences team.
I have over 17 years of admin/PA/customer service experience. Ranging from PA to COO of an oil related company to more recently 4 years experience in retail customer service at Department Store. I feel I excelled at providing a premium customer shopping experience in my last role.
Organising large company events (for around 400 employees) used to be one of my main roles and biggest achievements which I loved as I enjoy organising and problem solving. All of this stood me in good stead for being a stay-at-home-mum for several years, which has transpired to be my most challenging role to date!
I aim to use my “can-do” attitude positively for Kaizen Life Sciences and hope that my fondness for meeting new people shines through when chatting to prospective candidates and clients.
Fit body: fit mind is one of my mantras. How lucky am I that our offices are based in a gym. I think it's so important to exercise.
Who we work with speaks volumes. From small start-ups to global blue chip corporations, we always strive to be the recruitment partner of choice, regardless of the project or size of the organisation.
