Armelle Mijonnet, Regional Site Engagement Manager, France

What motivates you about your job?

As a Regional Site Engagement Manager (RSEM) in the Global Clinical Operations department, my role involves working with multiple stakeholders at local, regional, and international levels. This allows me to closely collaborate with the Medical Affairs team and support the strategic decisions of the Global study team.

The diversity of these interactions serves as a strong motivation for me, as they are built on relationships, collaboration, and trust. My biggest source of motivation stems from the regular and varied interactions I have, which are based on fostering collaborative and trustworthy relationships.

Why did you choose Daiichi Sankyo as an employer?

When I made the decision to join Daiichi Sankyo in 2021, the company was on the rise as a growing company, soon to become a major contributor in the development of oncological drugs with a meaningful impact on cancer patient lives. Additionally, I was attracted to the company's strong emphasis on work-life balance, extensive support for employee development, and its commitment to diversity and equity. These factors were all compelling motivations for me to join Daiichi Sankyo.

If you had to describe Daiichi Sankyo in three words – what would they be?

Patient-focused: Daiichi Sankyo prioritises the well-being and needs of patients, making them the driving force behind the company's endeavors. Collaborative: Daiichi Sankyo provides a supportive and motivated environment for collaborators, where they can have a direct impact and receive assistance in their personal and professional development. Technologically advanced: Daiichi Sankyo is a company at the forefront of technology, bringing cutting-edge, innovative medications to the market. The company's research is supported by highly skilled individuals.

How do you experience the work culture at Daiichi Sankyo?

The work culture at Daiichi Sankyo has been an enlightening experience for me, particularly due to the Asian influence that was initially unfamiliar. I have been genuinely interested in delving deeper into this cultural aspect and have gained significant benefits from embracing and expanding my cultural knowledge. The spirit of globalisation that permeates Daiichi Sankyo encourages us to respect and appreciate our differences, thereby creating a more inclusive and expansive work environment.

How has your personal journey at Daiichi Sankyo been?

My personal journey at Daiichi Sankyo began two years ago as a Regional Site Engagement Manager (RSEM), engaging sites across various countries involved in clinical trials within the European region. I was then offered the opportunity to take on the role of Asset RSEM Lead for a significant clinical program, overseeing its progression from phase 1 to phase 3. Recently, I have been proposed to work on a more focused early-phase project, reflecting the growing portfolio and the company's need for increased agility.
