    Who are we?

    As a top five CRO, providing innovative solutions for our clients is what we do. From full service clinical development to the pioneering Embedded SolutionsTM model, PRA provides a broad spectrum of solutions that meet the demands of a diverse marketplace.


    At PRA, borders do not create boundaries.  Our growing workforce is 15,000+ employees strong, spanning 13 time zones across 85 countries – yet we operate in unison as one global community.  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 forward thinker.  You are an innovator that refuses to settle.  The idea of using your technical skills to support a global community that works diligently towards improving the lives of others excites you.  You want to push the boundaries and change the future.  You want to learn from the best, grow your knowledge and your skill set, and you want to build your career.  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.
