Chatting to candidates and sipping a Piña Colada on a beach in Bali

WHAT DI LOVES MOST ABOUT HER JOB:

 “I get to talk to lots of different people from various backgrounds – it gives you the chance to learn so many new things! But also, since we’re working with the pharmaceutical industry, I feel like I’m indirectly changing the world.”

CHANEL HICKEN

A LITTLE ABOUT CHANEL:

  • Chanel has worked in pharmaceutical recruitment for nearly seven years, specifically concentrating on the medical affairs, commercial and medical information markets in Europe and the UK.
  • In a previous life Chanel was a professional singer, and her ultimate crowd pleaser was “I want to dance with somebody” by Whitney Houston. It was a firm fan favorite.
  • Chanel also used to have her own YouTube channel with up to 200,000 viewers!

IDEAL REMOTE WORKING LOCATION WOULD BE:

A log cabin by the snowy mountains somewhere in Austria or Switzerland. Pure bliss.

WHAT CHANEL IS PASSIONATE ABOUT:

“First and foremost, I’m passionate about science and working in recruitment for the pharmaceutical industry means we get to play a big part in bringing drugs to the market that ultimately help patients and their families; helping the science come to life so to speak. We’re a small cog in a very big wheel, and our job is often overlooked!”
