More information about this job


***Please note this position is 90% recruiter focused and 10% HR Business Partner focused.***



Is your recruiting style more or E-harmony, more bodies in seats or matches made from multiple points of compatibility? Is recruiting what you do or is it who you are, your paycheck or your passion?



If you’re the latter, there is a place here at PRA for you.


Who are we?

We Are PRA.


We are 13,500+ employees strong, operating in more than 80 countries. We are committed to saving lives and we are constantly striving to be the best at what we do. Our impact is real and we see it every single day. We help get life-saving drugs into the hands of those who need them most.


Who are you?

You are an active participant in the Purple Squirrel Finders Society and Unicorn Hunters Guild so you know all the tricks of the trade for sourcing and qualifying talent. You speak fluent Boolean, LinkedIn and know how to mine ATS databases.


You have mastered your messaging so you’re not just another inmail, email or phone call from a Recruiter stuck in metrics mode. You have a social media presence but its real and approachable. You understand your audience, their pain points and their motivations so there’s no sales pitch, just an honest approach to making a mutually beneficial match.


And lastly, most importantly, you believe in what we do, this not insignificant mission behind clinical research to bring drugs to the market that will change lives. For that reason, recruiting is no longer a job, a paycheck, another 9-5; it’s your passion and the thrill of a perfect placement is not just a win for you but it’s a win for PRA and every patient who will benefit from the work we’re doing today.


You will source candidates via cold calling, email, and using other recruiting tools to pipeline potential candidates; you will be active on social media branding the PRA talent brand and continually building and nurturing your network. You may participate in career fairs, conferences, and networking events.
