How did you start recruiting in Medical Communications?
I started recruiting within Med Comms in January this year. Before that, I worked at Carrot recruiting for Marketing roles within Pharma companies and have over 9 years’ recruitment experience in total.
What do you love the most about your job?
I love that we speak to new people every day and that most Account Executive candidates will keep in touch even after we place them. I also love working within my team here at Carrot Recruitment, we’re a very happy and supportive bunch.
What would you say to a job seeker that’s looking to start a career as an Account Executive?
For a job seeker looking for an Account Executive role, I would suggest getting in touch with myself, as I’ll be able to offer advice and support on what your possibilities might be. I’d also suggest being open and keen to explore a few options.
What do you think is the future for Account Executive professionals working within Med Comms?
The future looks great for all Med Comms people, not just Account Executives. The industry is booming and the demand for candidates has never been higher. As well as a variety of roles and different therapy areas to pick from at present, clients are also keen to offer fantastic benefits, work/life balance and training and development to those looking to move into the industry.
What do your candidates say about working with you?
The feedback that I receive from candidates is that they really like how I listen to what they are looking for and tailor their search to them and their priorities.
