Scientific Recruitment Leader
Lauren is a Biological Sciences graduate from the University of Birmingham. After obtaining her degree with a 2:1 classification, she enrolled in a graduate placement at a recruitment agency based in Solihull, going on to join Paramount in March 2011.
Following a few very successful years on Team Science, Lauren went on to become a senior member of the team. Specialising in the recruitment of scientific professionals across Europe, she keeps particular focus on the Biotechnology and Drug Discovery industries, working with clients on technical and niche positions. Lauren enjoys using her scientific knowledge to source the best possible candidates, and has built strong relationships with Biotechs across the UK and Europe as a result. She also enjoys the challenge of working with start-up and growing companies, however, and has successfully expanded many of their research teams.
In her spare time, Lauren enjoys hanging out with her family, skating and going for meals. She likes to think of herself as a good home cook – gaining the majority of her skills from religiously watching Masterchef. A self-professed ‘crazy ferret lady’, she spends the remainder of her time running after her pets, who most certainly rule the roost!
