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

Because we’re hoping you’re here for the latter.

We Are PRA.

Who are you?

You are a forward thinker. You are an innovator that refuses to settle. You want to push the boundaries and change not just what it means to be a SAM Clinical Trial Assistant, you want to change the future.  You want to learn from the best, grow your knowledge and your skill set, and you want to build your career here. You want to use the latest technology and tools in the industry to push the momentum of an already growing company forward. You want to find a balance that still lets you be, well, you. Most of all, you want to do it in a place where you’re more than an employee number. A place you love working.

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