Dedicate your Project Leadership role towards improving the world's health

Find out what it means to work with the patient in mind

Parexel’s Global Project Leadership group consists of approximately 500 employees based in 35 countries worldwide. This team is a critical part of driving success for our clients and advancing clinical research projects.

The Global Project Leadership (GPL) department is structured into client delivery units (CDUs). Each CDU has dedicated Project Directors/Project Leaders, who are aligned to a sponsor or a group of sponsors to cover all phases of clinical development. We have teams dedicated to specific types of clients, Enterprise and Biotech, and deliver solutions customized to fit their needs. Both groups work on projects spanning across all phases of global clinical trials, in a wide array of therapeutic areas. We put our hearts into executing sponsor projects/programs to the highest standards, delivering them on time and within budget.
