Sarah Groom, Account Manager - Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology at Groom

Sarah Groom

Director, Science & Pharmaceutical

Sarah Groom has been significantly developing Groom & Associates’ Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences Division since 2013. Sarah holds Bachelor’s and Masters degrees in medical chemistry from the University of Ottawa. She is passionate about science, but discovered that her talents would better serve the business community instead of a laboratory environment. Her science background is indispensable, as it enables her to relate to scientist candidates on a deeper level compared to other hiring managers who might only possess general knowledge. Sarah takes pride in knowing that she has helped start-ups recruit and build their core teams of specialists from the ground up. She also uses her technical background to consult with her clients’ HR departments so that they might better understand how to hire scientists, and the nature of their work. Growing the Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences Division by building the team and expanding the client base is Sarah’s main professional endeavour – one which combines her interest in science and her desire to help people achieve fulfilling careers.
