My Jobs


Emilie headhunted me into my current position. She presented the opportunity honestly without exaggeration. She was friendly, helpful and extremely fast in responding to my messages and phone calls during the recruitment process. Emilie is highly professional, dependable and efficient. She delivers what she promises! It was a pleasure to work with Emilie.

Emilie was very friendly, communicative and quick in responding to my emails and phone calls during my recent job interview process. She was very helpful in every stage and answered all the questions I had. It was great to work with Emilie and I would highly recommend her.

M.K - Software Engineer

Emilie was instrumental in my move from an academic position at the University of Cambridge to biotech. I was impressed with her knowledge of the life sciences sector and her excellent grasp of bioinformatics and its idiosyncrasies. She kept me well informed throughout the process and was quick to address the common issues that arise in making a move to industry. I would have no hesitation with working with Emilie in future, either as a job candidate or for recruitment.

A.S - Senior Systems Biology Data Scientist

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 achieves those goals by conducting a very friendly but thorough interview. You can be sure that you are offered a proper job not just any offer. The whole process is very stress free; you do feel like you are in this as a team. Emilie is always doing follow-ups, keeps you well informed and is communicating all your questions and needs to the company.
