Building a real network for your job search

Last week I was able to represent Liftstream at the AstraZeneca’s Career Fair, aimed at helping people impacted by the closure of their Sodertalje site in Sweden. It was revealing to hear how so few people truly understood how to work with recruitment companies and get the best out of them. Maybe this was because they previously had little reason to interact with recruitment companies, and recruitment has certainly changed a good deal in recent years. One of the big changes is the emergence of Social Media in recruitment and a lot of people were keen to know how they should coordinate the two.

Patience is a virtue in career planning #6

    #6 of Getting ready for a job change!
    Looking for a job needs patience. Understandably, losing your job or the likelihood of such an event, is likely to put considerable pressures on anyone. These pressures can be severe in cases as the uncertainty of the situation is often very unsettling, and patience is not a behaviour most prominently displayed. People are given to frustration, indecision, optimism and disappointment, while being patient just feels unnatural. You feel compelled or driven to make things happen. But this should come with a cautionary note. In almost every walk of life, from professional sport, to expeditions and discovery, to an office job, everyone is quite clear that under pressure situations, decisions take a different complexion and the judgements you make are often influenced by these circumstances, often to the detriment.

Celgene launch new UK and Ireland office

On Monday 21st November 2011, Liftstream’s MD – Karl Simpson, attended the official launch of Celgene’s new UK & Ireland office at Stockley Park. Hosted by Celgene’s Sam Pearce, General Manager Northern Europe and Philippe Van Holle, President of Celgene Europe, the official unveiling was by Rt. Hon David Willetts MP, the UK Minister for Universities and Science. The event was a fantastic celebration of Celgene’s new office facility at 1 Longwalk Road, Stockley Park but also the important role that life-sciences plays in the UK and European economies with the tremendous growth they can bring, including the level of highly skilled science-based jobs it creates. It was great to look back at how Celgene has grown from a small market entrant in 2006 to the sizeable operation it is in Europe today, employing some 800 people.
David Willetts MP commented on the impressive growth of Celgene and said that the coalition government is looking to do all it can to encourage companies like Celgene to do more business in the UK. It seems he was equally impressed by the facilities themselves, making particular reference to the dining facilities offered to staff and how he thought they were even more ‘cool’ than those of Google.
Philippe Van Holle gave a presentation on where the Celgene business is today, the business strategy and how it intends to grow in the future through the pursuit of haematology, oncology and immune-inflammatory therapies. He talked to the strength of the Celgene pipeline and the particularly encouraging outlook in the phase III studies in haematology. Sam Pearce then talked to the way in which Celgene continues to work with patient groups and how 12 Celgene employees (including Sam herself) ran the Berlin marathon to raise funds for UK charities supporting people with Myeloma and MDS.
