professional experience in start-up biotech company with all round responsibilities in different domains such as hr – payroll – office fit out – Office Management – etc … although coming from a predomiantly hr oriented role, i am equally eager to expand my knowledge and gain experience in Clinical research as a a whole. having worked within a biotech environment, i was exposed to many exciting topics. i always offered help or assistance to any department when my work load alowed to do so. i am a strong believer that one can do/achieve anything as long as you truly want to succeed. this is why i'd like to apply for this position.
i dispose of strong language and Communication Skills. love a multinational environment. want to learn about clinical processes and therefore i am prepared to begin in a starters position. it is exciting and thrilling to be able to achieve knowledge and to build excellent working relationships with a Coach or mentor. i have a can-do mentality and like to make the next step, hopefully in a biotech environment again.
