Andy Smith, Linda Eden-Ellis and Amrita Jetwani have joined Star to lead its clinical research business unit.
Andy worked operationally in the CRO industry for 5 years before moving to recruitment in 2003. Since then he’s worked with the best clinical research talent in the UK and across Europe.
Linda set-up and coordinated clinical device and drug trials from Phase I to IV while employed in a series of clinical trial coordination roles with a European CRO. From there she moved to study feasibility and clinical team outsourcing, before concentrating on contract resourcing; she worked with major blue chip pharma companies to find staff for core clinical drug development roles.
Amrita brings scientific research and manufacturing experience to Star.
Star also welcomes Jodie Cattermole and Gemma Sawyer back to the business as Project Managers within its contract business unit.
Jodie spent six years with Star as an Account Manager. More recently she managed projects and developed digital strategies to improve efficiency across all aspects of the pharmaceutical industry with O2 Health.
Gemma was a Vendor Manager with Star’s Master Vendor business unit before moving to a global organisation as a District Sales Manager. Back at Star Gemma manages the national outsourced sales team for Nestlé Healthcare Nutrition.
Ben Hawkes has become Team Leader of Star’s new healthcare communications team. He’s managed the healthcare resourcing team since joining the company but before this he worked with web design and digital agencies before moving to recruitment in 2004. He’s used his diverse experience to lead this new initiative.
