PRA is hiring a Lead CRA to be embedded with our innovative biotech client in Australia. Lead CRA is a role rather than a title and would be aligned to the responsibilities of a Lead CRA within the company. This will involve supporting the CTM with running reports/metrics/supporting the other CRAs on the study, some report review and carrying out more management responsibilities to help support trial management at a country/regional level. A Lead CRA is a middle step in between a CRA and Trial Manager. You will still be responsible for sites, but have a certain amount of FTE dedicated to the Lead CRA responsibilities.

Why apply?

  • The program has a strong and innovative pipeline in oncology, with a high percentage of compounds moving from Phase I into later phase so the organization will continue to grow and foster career development opportunities
  • This is a very varied role, whilst acting as a support for the Trial Manager you will also provide mentorship and support for monitoring CRAs, this will be invaluable to bridge the gap for future trial management opportunities
  • You will be assigned sites to monitor to maintain these skills, however you will only be dedicated to 1 study to allow for the additional lead responsibilities
  • Roles are home-based and travel is regionalized as much as possible to promote work life balance for you, although interstate travel may still be required outside of those locations
  • You will work in a supportive and nurturing environment that values a united team approach where help and support is always provided by PRA and sponsor management
  • Career progression is highly supported, with management adopting a ‘retain and grow’ ethos to nurture talent through the PRA embedded program giving you access development opportunities through an insourced team
  • The global team has impressive retention with minimal turnover in the last 5 years which means you will be part of a stable and motivated team with high standards of performance


  • You will be based in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Adelaide and able to commit to local and interstate travel as required
  • Previous strong SCRA experience, within CRO or pharmaceutical industry and within oncology is essential, however we can be flexible on the level of experience
  • You will be motivated and strive for excellent in your work, keen to take on additional responsibilities and you must be confident working autonomously to ensure delivery of expectations
