The benefits of consultancy for lab technicians
Consultancy for lab technicians, something for you? Take the test!
What would companies in the medical, pharmaceutical, chemical and food industry be without lab technicians? The profession of laboratory technician is, however, more than a traditional laboratory job. Becoming an expert in your field as a consultant can broaden your horizon. Peggy Buys, Business Unit Manager at Science Talents, explains how the job of consultant can give your career a new boost and which advantages you can enjoy through Science Talents.
Experimenting with new expertise
When people think of a lab assistant, they usually think of a scientist in a white overcoat who tests and analyses samples in a laboratory. But the profession is much more diverse! Peggy explains: "At Science Talents, we notice that young school leavers often want a taste of lab practice. We want to give them the opportunity to gain a certain expertise in different companies. We support them through coaching and guidance. Science Talents also offers the opportunity to follow exciting training courses, so that consultants can grow even more in their profession."
Building new skills
"There is no lack of vacancies these days," confirms Peggy. "In various sectors - pharma, chemistry, food, biotech, healthcare - companies are feverishly looking for new and ambitious talent. In pharma, for instance, they are looking for people in process validation, quality assurance and control, clinical research and regulatory affairs. In food companies, there's a need for young potentials for R&D-driven jobs and quality control. Chemical companies and hospitals also have a lot of interesting vacancies.
The classic lab technician with a bachelor's degree often likes hands-on lab practice," Peggy also points out. " Within Science Talents, we want to trigger him or her to build up extra expertise in different companies and/or projects via consultancy. In this way, they continue to build their network and expand their knowledge.
Attractive salary package
Science Talents acts as a matchmaker between talented scientists and attractive employers in relevant industries. "Anyone who joins us as a consultant for Science Talents receives a very attractive package of employment and salary conditions," notes Peggy. "We offer permanent contracts as much as possible, which gives candidates the opportunity to work on exciting projects for the same employer. In addition to a competitive salary, we also offer a company car and a fuel card. In these times of expensive fuel prices, this wage advantage is worth gold! Science Talents also offers group insurance, hospitalisation insurance, meal vouchers and continuous support from our career managers.
Investment in training and coaching
As Business Unit Manager at Science Talents, Peggy herself is responsible for the coaching and training of young potentials. And she does so with passion. "From the first contact with the candidates - who learn the job on their projects - we offer them extra support when they apply. Experience has taught us that most of our science graduates are naturally factual and rationally trained in their academic path, where often little attention was paid to "self-branding". That is why we at Science Talents focus hard on coaching and training, in both soft and hard skills. With our Young Potential Academy, we prepare young talent for the job market. We offer them training in communication and presentation techniques, conducting feedback interviews and time management, among other things.
