  • Overview

    Do you want to watch drug development change, or do you want to be the one to shape it?

    We’re hoping you’re here for the latter.

     

    Who are we?

    We Are PRA Health Sciences. We provide innovative drug development solutions across all phases and therapeutic areas. But innovation just for the sake of innovation isn’t why we do it. Side by side with our clients, we strive to move drug discovery forward, to help them develop life-saving and life-improving drugs. We help change people’s lives for the better every day. It’s who we are. Innovating to help people is at the heart of our process, but it’s even more than that. It’s our privilege.

    Who Are You?

    You are a natural leader with a passion for drug development. You are organized, but flexible and adaptable to unexpected changes. You can easily envision the bigger picture, without losing sight of the day-to-day tasks. You provide excellent leadership not only to your project teams, but also to clients. You are excited and enthusiastic, motivating your teams to do great work and collaborating easily with your clients. You never settle for what is, but are always pushing clinical development forward to what it can be, while encouraging others to do the same. Most of all, you want to do this work in a place where you’re more than an employee number – a place where you can influence, innovate and be afforded opportunities for growth. A place you love working.

     

    Still here? Good. Because if this is you, we’d really like to meet you.
