Sophie Hill – Lab technician

Sophie enjoyed science at school and decided to pursue Biology at both A-level and for her degree. She studied at the University of Birmingham and whilst studying she worked on a temporary basis as an assistant in the laboratories.

On completing her degree an opening came up at the university as a laboratory technician and she feels that her temporary work helped her get the job. She feels that the technician role is a great starting point for anyone with an interest in science.
