Robert about working at Qserve
“I always knew as student I wanted to get in to consultancy. I found my main interest in Medical Devices. When the CEO of Qserve, Jan van Lochem, spoke on the Alumni day at the university, I knew I found the right match. Regulatory was completely new for me when I started. But that didn’t stop me from taking the amazing challenge I got offered to work in Regulatory Affairs. So far, with all the training from Qserve, I have found my way in the Qserve team as Junior Regulatory Affairs Consultant. And I’m really excited for what the future will bring me at Qserve.”
