I saw the role advertised on rate my placement and applied via the online application.
“I couldn’t ask for a better team – I get on very well with everyone and there is no segregation between managers and assistants”
I particularly enjoy managing new product launches with creative agencies to coordinate and design all promotional materials. I have been lucky enough to be given responsibility for leading on numerous projects. For example, I work in Haematology and was asked to lead on coordinating all activities for Blood Cancer Awareness month and in the coming year I will be leading on the re-branding of one of our major products.
I have loved the opportunity to further my knowledge and learn more around the products we sell. Whether that be product specific training or attending meetings on potential upcoming projects. I have also learnt how vital prioritisation and time management is to any marketing role in the pharmaceutical business.
I couldn’t ask for a better team – I get on very well with everyone and there is no segregation between managers and assistants. In my short time here so far, I already feel like a valued member of the team.
Be proactive! Demonstrate your enthusiasm for marketing. You don’t have to come from a scientific background to succeed in this role.
