A conversation with Marianna Suckova, Recruitment Director, Docs Global, by Mike Wood, editor of Spotlight.

Mike Wood caught up with Marianna after she’d taken part in one of the recruiter training sessions at DOCS offices recently. These training sessions are run by Sales Director, Vincent Lody, who has been working in the recruiting and Pharma industry for over 20 years, and account Manager Kelly Tipper - an ex-recruiter herself.

MW:Marianna, do you think the recruiter training sessions were useful to Docs Global?

MS: Definitely. You know, after the course, we made seven placements in seven weeks, that’s quite a good record and I think the training session helped us achieve that. Long may it continue.

MW: Can you identify what made the sessions helpful?

MS: After the course, I think we all felt a much greater sense of ‘ownership’ of our clients and a responsibility to and for them. It was a real ‘back to basics’ thing, and it’s easy to forget that regardless of how technology progresses, it’s a people business. Vince also covered areas of planning which reminded us to consider how clients think and how they plan - and to make sure we contact them at times that work for them. It’s all about relationships, understanding how your clients think, and what helps them.

MW: Yes, you’re right. How useful do you find PharmiWeb in helping to develop and maintain your business?

MS: It’s great actually. I love the Reports and updates from Kelly, she knows how to keep us informed with useful industry tips and information and I’m comfortable that PharmiWeb understands our business more and more and has a good grasp of what we need, and so can help us achieve our goals, as well as keeping us up to date with new technologies, processes and industry trends.

MW:So, would you use our training again, and recommend it to others?

MS: Oh, yes, definitely! Both for new hires and seasoned recruiters. You know, another thing that I mentioned to Kelly is I think since the training the quality of our Docs Global job adverts has improved too and that’s led to increased application rates. That's thanks to the training too.

MW: Great, thanks Marianna, and happy hunting!
