I enjoy most the scale of the impact that I can have on the successful delivery of a clinical trial. Being a mid-sized CRO, there are large teams contributing towards each project. However, each employee is empowered to impart their ideas and talents to optimise the work that we do for our clients. On a personal level, I am proud of the contributions I have been allowed to make to the projects that we conduct as Simbec-Orion.
