In January 2019, Paramount Recruitment published its second annual Genomics Salary Survey, in conjunction with Frontline Genomics. In this article, Paramount’s Eugene McDaid takes a look at the stories and trends behind the stats:
The Frontline Genomics Festival is always a must-attend for Paramount Recruitment and this year’s UK event, held in January at the London Business Design Centre, was no exception. Paramount President Eugene McDaid attended the two-day conference and exhibition to catch up with clients and candidates – past and present – and to hear about all the latest developments shaping the future of the Genomics sector.
The average salary for a male worker in the UK Genomics sector is 18% higher than the average female salary. This gender pay gap was one of the most striking findings from the Genomics Industry Workforce survey report published last week by Front Line Genomics and Paramount Recruitment.
