I wanted to work in a demanding commercial environment, and was drawn to the pharmaceutical industry because it’s about doing good at work, making medicines more accessible and investing in improving peoples’ health.
I started with Wrafton Laboratories Ltd., which was later purchased by Perrigo, as a Sales & Marketing Assistant. Throughout my fourteen years at Perrigo, I’ve been fortunate to work with different teams and departments, growing my knowledge in various areas to support our customers. Now a Senior Contract Account Manager, I am able to use my knowledge to help my colleagues and the business grow. I love my job and thoroughly enjoy working for Perrigo.
We have a very demanding work life, and Perrigo encourages us to enjoy our time outside of work. The Braunton site is surrounded by amazing countryside and is very close to a number of beaches. Perrigo promotes an active lifestyle by supporting a cycle to work scheme, lunch time walking clubs and after work running groups. We have worked with the local School and Community College to introduce the students to the site through facility tours and to see first-hand the different technologies and processes we use to make and supply medicines.
Perrigo’s values are demonstrated with how people work together here. We roll up our sleeves to pitch in and get things done well. Perrigo invests in its people and delivers on its core values. We are encouraged to stand behind the values as people, not just employees.
