Alison Howarth

Director, AgR-Scientific
United Kingdom


I began my career in health care, training and working in both psychiatric and general nursing. I took a career break, and decided to return to education as a mature student, gaining a BSc Molecular and Cellular Biology, and a diploma in management studies.

Following this I worked as a research scientist for Yorkshire Water, and as a section leader in a large contract testing laboratory before joining a scientific recruitment company, initially as a recruitment consultant, latterly as a senior account executive. Covering a large geographic area I worked closely with hiring managers and HR in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, personal care product, biotechnology, speciality and agrochemical industries in order to find the right person for their specific hiring needs. I now run my own scientific recruitment company.
