Before embarking on a career within recruitment, Lauren graduated with a BSc in Biological Sciences from the University of Birmingham. She then enrolled on a Graduate Training Scheme at Paramount in 2011.

Following a few very successful years on Team Science at Paramount, Lauren went on to become a senior member of the team. She is now a Senior Specialist in Healthcare Communications, with a focus on Medical Writers in London and the South East. Lauren enjoys using her strong engagement and talent searching skills to find the best opportunities for candidates, and has also developed trusted long- standing relationships with clients.

In her spare time, Lauren enjoys hanging out with her family, pets, 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.
