Natasha – Senior Project Manager
Before joining Oxford PharmaGenesis, I studied Biological Sciences as an undergraduate at the University of Exeter. I always knew that I wanted to work in a scientific field but I soon discovered that there were many career paths I could take following my degree.
When I learnt of a position as a Project Assistant at Oxford PharmaGenesis it sounded like a great opportunity in a scientific profession that I hadn’t previously considered. Although I was starting in an entry-level position, I was pleasantly surprised to be introduced to clients and awarded real responsibility from day one. I soon understood what medical communications was all about and how crucial my role was within the team.
Following the opening of PharmaGenesis London, I was offered the chance to work at the new office which, despite enjoying life in Oxfordshire at the time, was too good an opportunity to turn down. On moving to the capital, I was able to play a central role in developing the framework that allows our London office to run smoothly and efficiently.
Oxford PharmaGenesis has a great track record for rewarding good performance with career progression and, since joining the company 7 years ago, I have been promoted several times, in to my current position of Senior Project Manager. In this role, I am responsible for the management of several publications and meetings accounts across a variety of therapy areas.
As a Senior Project Manager, I am involved in the whole project life cycle, managing everything from account logistics and finances to the establishment and maintenance of relationships with clients and healthcare professionals.
I would certainly recommend Oxford PharmaGenesis as the ideal company for a career in administration or Project/Account Manager roles in the medical communications industry. The company has supported my career development throughout, providing me with all the necessary training and enabling me to develop some invaluable skills and succeed in my role.
Oxford PharmaGenesis is a fantastic company to work for – not only does it offer opportunities for career development but it also provides a great environment in which to work alongside dedicated, like-minded colleagues.
