I am a British national and came to Japan in 2006 on the Japanese government JET Programme. After nearly two years living and working in Okayama Prefecture, I joined the British Council and worked there for approximately nine years, specializing in the Education and Corporate Training sectors. During that time I completed successive courses with the University of Cambridge and Nottingham University, which complimented my increasingly diverse professional competencies. I was fortunate enough to be posted to Tokyo twice, Seoul and Singapore, which gave me an excellent understanding of British Government 'soft' diplomacy operations across the APAC region.
I left the British Council in 2014 and started working as an Executive Recruiter in the Pharmaceutical industry in Japan and across the wider APAC region. The first year and a half saw me focusing on commercial areas such as sales, marketing and business development before I turned to developing a broader awareness across the full spectrum of research & discovery, commercial sales, marketing & business development, clinical development, regulatory affairs, as well as back office functions.
Randstad is a globally recognized brand that is renowned for continually evolving and entering into new industry areas. I'm looking forward to growing and developing into one of the leading figures in Life Science Executive Search by taking advantage of our global support networks and leveraging our prominence in the market to access the best jobs and the top talent.
