Bionical Emas great strength is its flexible and innovative approach to new challenges – from getting an early Covid-19 trial off the ground in a matter of weeks to pulling together a dynamic, cross-departmental team with the skills needed to set up our first fully decentralised trial. On a personal level, I have been encouraged to question and improve our processes, investigate new tools for handling and visualising data, and to consider all possibilities when broadening the suite of functions that we perform.
Whichever department I deal with, I always have an expert to turn to; someone with years of experience in project management, regulatory affairs, monitoring, medicine, PVG and of course data management. For me, being able to draw on the skills and ideas of my colleagues means that I feel secure and supported to perform unfamiliar tasks and learn new aspects of my role.
I’ve found the strong focus on project management is key to Bionical Emas’s success at delivering our goals and has also been a great boost to my professional development, as I apply these skills to data management tasks.
I value the emphasis placed by senior leadership on fostering a friendly and welcoming working environment, with an open-door policy and positive relationships between colleagues at all levels. I am remote-based and work part time, and I am immensely grateful for the flexibility that I have been allowed when organizing my time and my workload. In the four years since I joined Bionical Emas the Data Management Department has grown fourfold, and I have no doubt that this is strongly related to it being such a nice team to be part of!
