I gained my degree in South Africa, where I then went on to work as a pharmacist for a number of years. On arriving in the UK I initially worked in medical information, but found telephone work wasn’t for me. Opting to work in drug safety, I was contracted to a number of big pharmaceutical companies, when in 2005 I came to Sanofi to manage a team in drug safety. PV is all about protecting patients by ensuring that we are always aware of the safety profile of our company products. As such this is a legal requirement, so processes and compliance are key.
As a graduate of Economics and CIMA qualified, I’ve been a Financial Reporting Accountant within Sanofi for six months now. My role within Sanofi covers financial control of stock and the supply chain for both the Ethical Business and Zentiva – our generic business. I have budget responsibility for these areas and report on actual expenditure to the relevant teams and management.
I gained a BA (Hons) Health and Social Care in Mental Health and I am also a Registered Nurse. I am currently studying towards an MBA, which is being supported by Sanofi. Prior to joining Sanofi, I worked in the NHS as both a hospital nurse and as a research nurse. I joined Sanofi as a pharmaceutical representative and was in this role for two and a half years. I am now a therapy development executive specialising in thrombosis.
