Why 2022 is a great year to join Paramount

2021 has never been a better time to join Paramount. Despite a challenging year, we managed to serve our community of clients and candidates. With lots happening, here a few reasons why you should apply to be a part of our team.

18 years and counting!

In January of this year, we were extremely excited to celebrate 18 years since Paramount was founded. It’s a great achievement for us and are confident to be around for even longer. 

Paramount Recruitment was formed in 2003 in Birmingham, UK, and expanded our recruitment services into the US in 2017. We are highly respected by various pharmaceutical, biotechnology and academic organisations who have partnered with us on senior search solutions and high-volume projects. Our Executive Search function supports business critical needs up to C-level, hiring the right people to accelerate drug discovery efforts in the short and long term.

Life Science sector

We have amazing opportunities here to work in one of the most innovative markets in the world. Whether that is using Artificial Intelligence or Medical Communications to help create a healthier world for us all. Something that I think we all appreciate more now due to recent events.

What’s more, The UK is aiming to be a life sciences superpower following COVID-19 (Health Europa) which is great news for us as a recruitment agency. We’re seeing a huge demand for life science companies wanting to recruit for talented individuals. 

Flexible working

In May, we gradually returned to the office and now implemented a hybrid working model - offering a mixture working from home and in the office. During office days we’re now allowing our staff to choose their working hours. We’ve always offered some form of flexible working and the office environment is a big part of who we are. 

Benefits and perks

We offer lots of benefits and perks: 

  • Excellent commission scheme paid monthly
  • Additional target end of tax year bonus
  • Monthly incentives to win vouchers (Amazon, food, your choice!)
  • Those working the US marketing are usually travelling to the US once-twice a year (not during COVID)
  • Additional travel to Europe and London for events and networking
  • Flexible working hours plus home working
  • Opportunity to win time back and extra half-day holidays 

City centre location

Our office is in Birmingham, UK just outside New Street station providing good transport links for commuting in and around surrounding areas. There is lots of development projects happening and there is a real buzz from businesses resuming activities after the pandemic. 

Our team is continually growing!

Since the pandemic, we’ve onboarded 5 new employees and due to our continued growth, we won’t stop there! Due to extensive demand from new and returning clients globally, we are eager to hire new talent to support our ongoing retained and contingent recruitment projects in Genomics & Bioinformatics and across Healthcare Communications

What do our staff say?

Paramount Recruitment is a great business to carve a successful career in Recruitment. I have worked at Paramount Recruitment for over 1 year now and I’m currently thoroughly enjoying my time with the business. Paramount offers strong opportunities for their team to recruit globally as I work the US market in Medical Communications. They offer exceptional commission opportunities, structured opportunities for career progression and have a very supportive leadership team.
