The event was visited by over 1000 Secondary School and 6th Form students, plus their parents.
This was a great opportunity to highlight how we ask fair questions in clinical trials and to highlight the skills and backgrounds of the people who make up the OCTO team.
Lucy spoke in depth to 32 students that evening helping them to understand the trials process better and the potential career options.
Some of the students hadn’t come across trials before and they were very interested to hear about both the process and the clinical trial lab based related work. There were a few budding Doctors who were interested to know that there can be a research element to this role too.
The event had hugely positive feedback. We're thankful that Lucy had the time to attend the careers fair - it’s so important that students understand the widest range of careers available and the skill sets that are involved in our work.
