What do you do on a day to day basis?

In my role, I am responsible for the day to day running of transportation, stock control, warehousing and monitoring goods and materials. I ensure that quality, cost and efficiency of the supply chain meet the standards required. On a day to day basis I work through a spreadsheet that contains information about what deliveries are going out each month each country within Europe, Asia, and America. I use a programme called SAP to look at transactions that have been packed and released, I am then able to arrange deliveries with road and air freight. I also provide documents for materials that are being imported into our Warehouse. I balance my studying on top of work which has been going really well and I am being able to successfully do both.

Why did you join Eisai?

I loved the idea of Eisai being a Japanese company and having global connections. I have always had an interest in the Japanese language and culture and being able to work in a company that has connections in Japan was just great for me. Eisai also thinks about the patients and want the drugs that are developed to have an impact on patient's life which made me want to join Eisai very much knowing this.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

I am happy and don't see myself changing career, I would like to continue to gain experience by doing higher qualifications so I can be my very best. My goal is to move to Japan and work for Eisai there.
