HART BIOLOGICALS is looking forward to welcoming former placement student Cassy Dear as a permanent member of staff at the organisation in September.


The 28 year old, completed her degree gaining a BSc First Class Honours in her Biological Sciences degree at Teesside University.


Cassy said: “As soon as I got back to university, I wanted to be back working doing the practical side of things and working on my own projects.


Working closely with the Research & Development team for a year on her industrial placement, Cassy was eager to re-join the team after completing her final year at university.


She will be further building upon her knowledge and experience, doing a placement with the company over the summer before officially joining as a Technical Scientist in September.

“I stayed in touch with everyone and sent my CV in, and after a chat with the team I was told I had a position waiting for me in September. I was so eager to come back that I actually started the week after, working as a summer placement student in the run-up to my permanent contract.


Keighley Larkin, Head of the Technical team at Hart Biologicals is looking forward to having Cassy on the team full-time.


She said: “Cassy fitted in seamlessly with our team and was such a hard worker. I was so happy when she expressed an interest to come back after completing her degree.


“We can’t wait to celebrate her university results and have her join us as a graduate.”
