Staff Spotlight On...Shereen
Meet Shereen Soames!

Shereen is our Talent Resource Advisor for the UK and US, based in our UK office in Milton Keynes. She's been with MRN for 13 months, having joined in April 2018. In her current role, Shereen helps us to recruit and retain the best talent in the market, helping us to develop our services and offering.

1. What three words best describe MRN for you?

Never a dull day! - Unique - Enjoyable

2. What do you like most about MRN and what do you find most challenging?

The thing I like the most is the culture that we have across the company and in our offices, and a large part of that is the people. These are my two favourite things about working in MRN, I enjoy the people I work with and the setting we work in. In terms of the most challenging, it would probably be finding the right person for the right job, we have a lot of unique positions so that can sometimes make things a bit more difficult to fill.

3. Why did you want to join MRN?

I wanted to join MRN because it was a chance to step into a really unique sector and one that I've never worked in before. The challenge excited me.

4. What do you want to achieve while at MRN?

I would like to grow with the business and grow my personal development within Human Resources as well. I'm already doing that by joining a rapidly growing business and especially in a market that was completely new to me and learning about clinical research, but I'm excited for more.

5. If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?

The Queen! I would love to know what the hell she actually gets up to when she's in Buckingham Palace!

6. People would be surprised if they knew...?

That I can actually sing like Beyoncé.

7. What is your personal philosophy?

Live every moment as if it was your last, create memories and be thankful.

8. Where is the best place you've travelled to and why?

It would have to be Jamaica, as this is where my father's roots stem from. It's a beautiful place and has so much natural beauty.

9. What is your favourite thing to do?

Spending time with my two-year-old little boy.

10. What is your biggest passion or strength?

My biggest passion is my son, creating memories with him and living a healthy lifestyle. My strength is my passion for personal development and striving to do what's best for my family.

11. What's something you'd like to experience?

I'd love to travel the world for a year with my family.
