My Experience, Leaving Medicine and Working With Halal Incorp

Why it’s a rare opportunity.

By Dr. Isuru Warakagoda MB ChB, Senior Consultant Halal Incorp       

Having recently spent 5 years in medical school and graduated from medicine I had a good career waiting for me as a doctor. Rather, to my friends and family’s surprise I opted out. My desire is to have a “great” life and not just a “good” career.  

The medical field is wonderful and there are many doctors who thoroughly enjoy what they do live great lives. Unfortunately, I knew early on in Medical School that I wanted something different.
After evaluating where I wanted to be in 10 years time I knew that my passion resides within the world of entrepreneurship and business side of medicine. I knew that I wouldn’t have been happy if I didn’t at least explore this passion. So I made the tough and scary decision to take a break from medicine and look to develop elsewhere.

It was tough at first. The corporate world is very competitive and few people saw the value of my qualifications for business. At the same time, there were hardly any companies I found an excitement to work for.

This was until I saw an ad as Business Associate for Halal Incorp.
The Director’s vision for the company really resonated with my own. The companies mission statement is to have “social impact” and has a global focus with many exciting potential projects in the pipeline (such as AI technology). We have amongst other projects worked on the £2Billion UK Gov Kickstart scheme to help young people find work which has been very rewarding.

The working conditions are great, The management are highly focused on giving young people the opportunity to develop and we do our work from home in part-time hours. Halal Incorp’s vision for the future is very exciting and it’s a great opportunity to be a part of a growing company from the start and to help it become an established global international brand.
