Hello, I'm Helen Marsden. I work as a marketing manager for a large pharmaceuticals company. My department produces vaccines against hepatitis anf so on. We normally sall our vaccines directly to doctors so one of my jobs is to discuss our new products with doctors. Marketing managers don't always do this, but I do as I'm a qualified doctor. I'm also responsible for our publicity material so I have to deal with designers and printers. My area is central Europe, so I have to deal with the health authorities in those countries. That means my job involves a lot of travelling. And finally, when we produce a new vaccine, it's my job to organise a conference for the medical press so that they can ask us questions about it.
Hello, I'm Robin Seaton. I work for a company called Vacupack. I'm responsible for employing most of the people in the company. I write the job advertisements and then I have to choose which applicants I want to interview. Usually, I interview the applicants with the head of the department where the vacancy is. I then have to contact the applicants after interview, both the successful and unsuccessful ones. Another duty is dealing with employees' problems. Of course many of them are work-related,but people do sometimes come to discuss personal problems with me. My job also involves informing employees if the management isn't satisfied with their work, which isn't a pleasant part of the job.
