What were you looking for when you were seeking a new role?
"When I first reached out to Zenopa I was looking to progress my career in a similar industry, but looking to take a ‘sideways step’ into a different type of role. I had previously been working in clinical practice as a veterinary surgeon, but wanted to move to a technical/commercial role within the veterinary pharmaceutical/nutraceutical industry."
What benefits have you had since securing your role?
"Since starting in my new role I’ve bought a house my girlfriend, thanks in no small part to the increased salary that came with the new role. I’ve also found myself with much more free time outside of work. Professionally speaking I’ve grown in confidence and learnt many new skills as well as developing existing ones.
How did you find the recruitment process?
"The recruitment process was very easy, which came as a pleasant surprise. I was leaving practice with a rough idea of what I wanted to do, but needed guidance from somebody who understood the industry better than me! Within a few weeks of contacting Zenopa I had a much better idea of the options open to me, and an interview already booked in."
How has your work/life balance improved?
"I would say I probably work more hours now (despite being contracted to do less), but that’s because I am enjoying what I’m doing and feel committed to the role. I think my work-life balance has improved as my hours are more flexible, and I’m better able to make and stick to plans since leaving a clinical role as there are no weekends or late-night emergencies."
How did you find the service provided to you by Zenopa?
"Zenopa’s service was fantastic from start to finish. Within a few weeks I had an interview booked in with a company that suited me extremely well (I ended up accepting a job with them!) Moreover Emma was helpful and supportive throughout the entire process, from preparing for the interview to negotiating and accepting the role."
