Porterhouse Bungee Programme case study: A successful plunge into scientific services

Porterhouse Bungee Programme


Porterhouse Medical Group would like to congratulate Catherine McEnhill on her successful ‘bungee’ into scientific services and her new role as an Associate Medical Writer.

Cat was one of the first members of the team to try out the Porterhouse Bungee Programme, an initiative that enables ambitious employees to undertake a part-time, fixed-term placement in a different department or team within Porterhouse. The scheme is an award‑winning entry from the Porterhouse Entrepreneur Awards Programme and allows participants to challenge themselves with a different role and set of responsibilities within the company. Cat enjoyed her ‘bungee’ experience into medical writing so much so that she has now transitioned from her role in client services to working full time as part of the scientific services team.

From an employee perspective, the Porterhouse Bungee Programme gives staff the opportunity to expand their skills and gain a professional network that extends beyond their usual team, and from a company perspective, it allows us to retain smart and passionate employees who wish to grow and evolve their skill sets. The programme also aims to promote a collaborative atmosphere within the company, thus improving effective working relationships and enhancing communication among staff across all teams and departments.

Since joining Porterhouse, Cat has brought a great deal of passion and energy to her work in the client services team, and she is now excited to take on this new opportunity. Congratulations, Cat! We wish you every success in your new role as an Associate Medical Writer.
