Who We Are
All successful businesses need a close-knit team with the vision and leadership to drive the organisation forward. Here at Sequani there’s a team of managers with a broad range of backgrounds responsible for specific areas of our work on a day-to-day basis. We take great pride in our ability to be adaptable and flexible for our clients and supporting our people in their career development. This is evident in our reputation for extending and re-designing jobs to enable people to grow into new roles.
Our scientific groups - mainly graduates – work in laboratory environments, analysing results and producing reports. The key scientific areas are analytical sciences, biosciences, pathology, and general and reproductive toxicology. The toxicology group doesn’t work in a lab as such, because they also form our study director group. Study directors hold each project together and are responsible for study design, quality, trouble-shooting, reporting and feedback to the customer. Study directors, looking after each overall study, spend their time working very closely with all of the departments.
We’ve got people at Sequani who have a detailed knowledge of all the work that goes on within the company so that they can support our experts. These people can be found in our teams dedicated to business development, scheduling, data management and quality assurance departments. These office-based roles require considerable technical expertise as well as the appropriate qualifications and involve liaison and collaboration across the business.
Technologists are arguably the very core of our business because they do the work that produces the raw data needed for our final product - study reports. Working in the animal or laboratory areas, technologists produce the data that is then analysed to detect significant trends and results. In the animal area, team members are looking after the animals; feeding, watering and cleaning them. But they also dose and weigh the animals and monitor their vital signs. In the pathology department, technologists do detailed, intricate work, helping to cut tissues and transfer them onto slides. These are then stained, ready for reading by pathologists looking for changes at the cellular level. In addition, we have several technologists whose task is to prepare materials and equipment needed to run the laboratory and diverse tests.
Last - but by no means least - our entire enterprise is supported by numerous people who keep the company running efficiently and effectively. They make up our information technology, finance, human resources, security and facilities teams.
