O'Hara, BSc (Hons)
Project Manager, Quintiles Laboratories
Years with Quintiles: 5 years
University attended: University of Glasgow

“I graduated in 2009 after studying an BSc in Anatomy at Glasgow University  and started my career with Quintiles Laboratories as a Project Coordinator in January 2010.  The role provided exposure to a wide range of global clinical trials for high profile clients as well as allowing me to gain a good understanding of what we do as a business.  I was very motivated and driven to progress, and in Jan 2012 was promoted to Associate Project Manager – this was my opportunity to demonstrate how much I had learned and use my experience to effectively deliver projects for our clients.  Quintiles really supported my development in the Project Manager role and as I became more confident and my experience grew I became involved in a wider range of initiatives that really helped me to diversify and expand my knowledge of the business and wider industry.  At the start of 2014 my hard work and expertise was recognised by way of another promotion, this time to Project Manager.  

My 5 years with Quintiles has passed really quickly - I have developed not only professionally but also on a personal level and I’ve received encouragement and support to progress my career from management and my peers every step of the way. There is a real team culture here which I really enjoy. I am looking forward to a long successful future with QLAB and really feel that I can achieve my career ambitions working for Quintiles Laboratories."
