  • Overview

    “Do you want to watch clinical 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.

     

    We are 15,000+ employees strong, operating in more than 85 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 a writer, editor, and project manager with an interest in science and the skills to convey complex concepts in a straight-forward way. You will work at the intersection of clinical trial science, business communication, and project management to:

     

    • Collaborate with a team of experts and executives
    • Craft clear, compelling, and client-ready proposals
    • Manage fast-paced deadlines

     

    You understand the need to communicate accurately with prospective and existing clients. You are a strategic thinker adept at gathering and translating technical and scientific information into documents in response to Requests for Proposals (RFPs). Your editing skills allow you to transform text into clear prose, and you can effectively and efficiently self-edit documents of varying lengths.

     

    You are a hard worker who can efficiently balance multiple ongoing projects and thrives in a fast-paced environment. Your attention to detail has won you praise, and you are regularly commended for meeting and beating deadlines. You look to make improvements–not accepting the status quo, but actively identifying ways to facilitate positive change. You confidently liaise with experts, and you proactively facilitate internal communications.

     

    In this next step on your journey, you want to put your competitive, driven nature to work in an environment in which you can sharpen your business acumen and learn the CRO industry from the inside out. In addition, you want to work for a company that supports your professional growth and a work/life balance that lets you pursue your career passion and still be you. Most of all, you want to do it in a place where you are part of a team whose members are as zealous about their work as you are, a place where you can make a difference.

     

    You are a Proposal Writer!
