Justin Rayment

founding member of Celere

Justin’s career has been focused on recruiting in the life sciences industry for 14 years. Justin started with National Search Associates in San Diego in 2000 and founded Paragon Search Group in 2004. For the past 10 years Justin has recruited top level talent for several leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies. He has experience in several different sectors of life science from early phase R&D through commercialization. While at Paragon Search Group Justin has worked with small startup companies with as little as 10 employees to large pharmaceutical companies with up to 100,000 employees. Working with hundreds of different companies has taught Justin that customizing his approach and tailoring it to the companies needs is imperative to finding the right talent for the company. Justin has learned that a “one size fits all” approach to recruiting does not work. By taking a consultative approach with the client and truly understanding their needs it creates value for the company and the candidate as well.

Why is Celere different?

Celere’s focus is to bring the highest level of talent to our clients in the most streamlined and cost effective way possible. By understanding our clients hiring needs as a whole instead of small pieces of a puzzle we feel Celere will be able to bring the best talent to our clients. Our goal is meeting our client’s immediate needs with talent that will help them to continue to grow and achieve their company’s long term goals.Justin
