As a leading specialist recruitment agency, Paramount understands the importance of getting the right people in the right jobs to maximise the success of a business. These principles are equally as applicable to Paramount’s own operations. We’ve established a culture which values a job well done, encourages development and rewards success.
When you first meet the team at the Birmingham, UK head office, it’s clear to see that there is no such thing as a typical Paramount employee. Some arrived with a degree education (in everything from psychology to illustration to animal science) and some came armed with work experience and a desire to learn. While their respective journeys may have started very differently, their paths are now unmistakably intertwined with the same passion for recruitment and life sciences.
We are looking for people who can adapt, learn new skills, are enthusiastic. You should enjoy working with people, be inquisitive and have genuine interest in what they do and what they want to achieve.
We offer lots of flexibility, the opportunity to travel, company trips, fine dining, fun, bonuses, incentives, commission and more. We're always on the lookout for talent.
In a recent employee survey in January 2022:
Paramount is a great company to work for. If you have the right attitude and drive to succeed, then the earning potential can be huge. The commission structure is strong, and the company offers a good level of flexibility for work life balance. Culturally it’s not a typical recruitment agency environment and isn't a "sales environment" as most would know it, but that is a nice change of pace if you come from that environment.
Joshua Large - Senior Principal Consultant
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.
Jason Salt - Senior Prinicpal Consultant
This is recruitment, and the job can be very challenging; but at Paramount I’ve always felt very supported. Dan and Eugene sit on the desk with us, they still do pieces of recruitment themselves and so they genuinely understand the current challenges in the marketplace, and they’ll work with you to fix them. The environment is enjoyable and never feels tense. These are things you just won’t find from one of the larger recruitment companies.
Emilie Francis - Consultant (former employee)
Our conscientious approach and years of experience in the life sciences industry makes for the ideal support arm and, most importantly, results. At Paramount, we have a hearty team spirit, encouraging each other to excel in service levels and deliver the best possible service for our partners.
Jade Page - Senior Associate Director
We have a great culture at Paramount, it's a fun environment everyone is always supportive and helpful, from directors down to consultants. We've got the freedom to own our markets and work in a way that suits us individually. The industry itself is really exciting and the opportunity to contribute to such amazing work wouldn't be available elsewhere!
Harvey Uppal - Principal Consultant
I really wanted to take the time to compliment Jason and Paramount on the whole process.
This is the first time I have looked at employment outside the Higher Education sector, and was illuminating in a way I did not expect. Jason was exceptionally kind and reminded me of the transferability of my skills and experience. I appreciated the time you took to really understand what I was able to offer, which is something not many companies or people do.
The interview was a pleasant and constructive conversation. Daniel has a lovely personality. He had answered clearly to all my questions related to the open position, company products and its clients.
