Impact on career choices and progression
Video clip: The need for flexibility in working practices led Verity to give-up her previous role.
Well it totally obliterated my previous career, working as a librarian. Which is actually quite upsetting when you think about it, because obviously I'd invested a lot of time. I'd been a librarian or worked in libraries since I was 16, in one way or another. So, it was a bit sad really. Yeah. That's not to say that having a career in clinical research is a bad thing. And they are giving me lots of development opportunities. And maybe actually if I'd had better careers advice I would have ended up in something like that, rather than just falling into libraries. But sometimes it's hard to get your head round.
