Science People - Bringing Good Science People And Good Jobs Together

Celebrating 15 years of Bringing Good Science People and Good Jobs Together

Scroll down for 15 of the fabulous candidates we have on our database currently seeking a new career.

As the principal of Science People, Diana Heery – me – (my picture is on the right – Cedric, our CEO, is on the left) I would like to applaud some of my long serving team.

When I started Science People, 15 years ago, after a corporate career where I considered all those back office and support people to be inconsequential and often incompetent I had a very quick reality check.

Everyone in an organisation is essential.

Being a niche, start up business I was not able to offer all the perks of the bigger organisations but I could offer flexibility and must have done something right for these amazing people to still be involved.

Robin Riley: bookkeeper extraordinaire who has kept me financially in line for over 14 ˝ years. I realised I needed Robin when I did my first payroll and paid the entire amount including the money I should have withheld for tax and super. Oops!

Dr Sophie Octavia: 12 years – started doing the data entry of resumes into our system whilst a student. Dr Sophie now has a PhD in microbiology (Typhoid) and is a highly regarded research scientist and still processes the resumes at night. Dr Sophie must be the highest qualified data entry clerk of all time.

Lindie Edouard: 10 years – Office manager who somehow manages to keep everything running smoothly. Lindie is the fastest typist I have ever come across.

Cedric Rat: 15 years Cedric has been a quiet achiever CEO, reminding us all that we really are Science People.

We are all looking forward to Bringing Good Science People and Good Jobs Together for another 15 years. (Unless one of those lottery tickets we keep buying, wins big.)
