Put patients at the heart of what you do every single day in Parexel’s Global Clinical Operations

Global Clinical Operations sits at the core of what we do at Parexel.

Parexel’s Global Clinical Operations has an impressive global footprint. We work with about 5000 team members operating from over 70 offices across the globe.

We all rally around one value; putting patients at the heart of everything we do, every single day.

What’s unique about Parexel’s Global Clinical Operations is that we truly take a holistic approach; this means that we have brought our feasibility team, risk-based services, and study start-up under one roof with clinical delivery and oversight. This allows us to bolster synergies and really strengthen strategic client consultancy and delivery end-to-end.

We have taken this approach because we know from experience that ensuring patient safety and data integrity begins with robust planning.

Delivering treatments to patients is truly a team sport

Parexel scored among the top-three CROs on attributes most valued by sites in the 2019 CenterWatch CT Site Relationship Survey! Excellent’ ratings included having well-trained monitors, organization and preparedness, easily accessible staff, and maintaining open communication.

And in a report from Life Sciences Strategy, Parexel was recognized for our ability to rapidly adapt and transition to fully remote or hybrid decentralized clinical trials. More evidence of the market-leading role we play as a company and as a Global Clinical Organization.

Career development

In Global Clinical Operations we recognize the importance of developing talent and helping individuals build a career in clinical research. We offer several internal talent development programs, allowing top performers to gain access to leaders and be assessed, selected, and trained for advancement into progressive roles within Clinical Operations.    

Our talent programs include building internal pipelines of talent for Clinical Research Associate positions, Associate Clinical Operations Leader opportunities (ACCOLADE), and Project Leadership positions (PLACE). We hire and promote qualified individuals across all regions into these programs and work to align resourcing of these programs to business needs.

We offer Wisdom Circles for our clinical staff whereby the small teams are mentored by senior leaders on topics such as leadership, communication, financial, and business acumen. 

Hear from Wisdom Circle participants about the program's impact on their career development:

Ashley Roberts transitioned from CRA to Clinical Feasibility Leader in May 2021.
"Through the Wisdom Circle, I became more confident to move into a leadership role. I realize that great leadership is fundamental for every aspect of business and personal life. I will keep trying to improve my leadership skills, inspiring and supporting other colleagues, especially those who are new to Parexel."

Jurate Maki transitioned from CRA to COLA in January of 2021.
"The Wisdom Circle Program helped to develop my purposeful professional development strategy. It encouraged me to accept an offered COLA role and embrace the challenges as the COLA regardless of my current level of experience. This is a great opportunity to learn and grow within the company."

Natalia Gruzdeva transitioned from CRA to COLA in January 2021.
"The wisdom circle enabled me to learn, analyze and discuss topics and areas that might not be a typical part of my previous role as a CRA. The knowledge I gained created a clearer picture of leadership practices and a path for further development. Today my mindset transformed and I can implement leadership approaches not just intuitively but with the sense of realization of what I am doing and why."
