Welcome to the Team Umul!24th January 2022
The CY Partners team are celebrating huge growth and are delighted to introduce Umul Ahmed! Umul is working as Principal Consultant within the Life Sciences sector with Neil Walton in the southern branch, based out of London. I caught up with Umul over teams and would love to share what I learnt below.
Umul has worked within science recruitment for about 5 years now and before that she was in various scientist and research biologist positions within the CRO arena as well as clinical trials and GSK, a global pharmaceutical organisation. With a BSc in Biochemistry from Kings College London and an MSc in Immunology from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Umul has a keen interest in immunology and cell and gene therapy and loves recruiting science professionals into life science roles.
Umul also enjoys hobbies that she discovered in the first lockdown, an appreciation for cross stitch and a love for cycling. Indeed cycling to the office is now not too far from reality.
As this is an introduction to Umul I will keep it concise and hopefully persuade her over to the blog to discuss skills, growth and career pivots with me at some point in the future!
CY Partners’ Associate Director Neil Walton had this to say: “I am delighted that Umul has joined CY Partners. She brings scientific recruiting expertise, backed up by her own working experience as a scientist across drug discovery and development. A combination which is already seeing her have significant impact on our key staffing projects.”
