Following a successful inaugural year in 2018, the second annual salary and workforce insights survey dedicated to the Healthcare Communications sector is published today. It helps you to benchmark your salary against others in the industry and identify key trends within the sector.
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.
Genomics industry professionals working in the USA are the highest paid in the world and their UK colleagues earn on average less than half as much. This was one of the most striking findings from the second annual Genomics Industry Workforce survey report published this week by Front Line Genomics and Paramount Recruitment.
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, and over the last 17 years owners Daniel and Eugene have established a culture which values a job well done, encourages development and rewards success. Here, we take a closer look at what its like to be part of the Paramount team.
Thank you to everyone that took part in the second annual Genomics salary and workforce survey in partnership with Front Line Genomics. The survey is now closed and we are busy analysing the 1,285 responses.
While Paramount Recruitment has only just opened an office in the USA, the business is no stranger to working stateside. In fact, James Luterbacher, Associate Director for Healthcare Communications, has been successfully filling vacancies for American clients for more than 18 months – and all from his desk in Birmingham, England.
They say that everything in the USA is bigger, and this is certainly true of its thriving healthcare, medical research and pharmaceutical economies. These industries are well funded and rapidly expanding, exhausting the local talent pools – which is why America is now looking beyond its borders to recruit, particularly in the specialist areas of genomics and healthcare communications.
A growing number of account handling professionals within healthcare communications are working on a freelance or contract basis. Find out the three main reasons why, and what the benefits are of working on contact.

She tells us about her travels and shares how the sabbatical has improved her confidence and awareness.
The UK’s position as a world leader within the global Genomics industry could be under threat thanks to Brexit uncertainties about the future working status of EU nationals in this country. Research by Front Line Genomics and Paramount Recruitment shows that 26% of the current UK Genomics workforce are nationals of other EU countries, and this percentage has dropped by 3% since the Brexit vote
The average salary for a male worker in the UK Genomics sector is 26.8% higher than the average female salary. This gender pay gap is higher than that in the USA where males earn 19% more than females and in the average of all other countries in the survey where the gap is 12.7%
