Lead Researcher

01403 577982

I have been a Researcher with Harris Lord since July 2014 and before this, I worked as a Pharmacy Assistant whilst studying for my BSc Psychology. I enjoy applying my scientific background within a people focussed vocation. 

I have now spent over 4 years sourcing candidates within the life sciences industry across a wide range of job functions. I have become so committed to my role at Harris Lord that I have got a “CVs” tattoo on my bicep. An achievement for which I have been featured in The Recruiter magazine. I am also currently keeping my local garden centre afloat. #crazyplantlady
