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.

Who are we?

We Are PRA.

We are 13,000+ 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 are getting live saving drugs into the hands those who need them most.

Who are you?

You are a leader that isn’t afraid to delegate, but also isn’t afraid to get your hands dirty. You look for new and innovative ways to problem solve. You are the ultimate planner and coordinator and are an excellent communicator. You have a serious passion for clinical development. You never settle for what is, but are always pushing clinical development forward to what it could be. You motivate others to do the same.
