Contract Research Organisation (CRO) jobs

The opportunity for contract research organization jobs is growing exponentially as more and more pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies are outsourcing their clinical, regulatory and medical functions to these organisations. CRO jobs, therefore, involve working with a variety of clients within the life science industry that develop a multitude of drugs, biologics and devices, many of which are on the cutting edge of innovation and medical advancement.

Jobs at CROs can vary due to the different types of CRO. There are clinical CROs that focus on delivering clinical research services, as well as smaller, niche CROs that specialise in a particular clinical trial phase (such as early or late phase) or provide expertise in a therapy area such as oncology or rare disease.

Some of the bigger CROs are full-service, offering their clients a wide range of services spanning the entire drug development process. This commonly includes anything from preclinical and clinical trial management, through to regulatory affairs, pharmacovigilance and post-marketing research.

Types of jobs in CROs

Clinical CRO jobs will typically involve clinical research associates (CRAs) and other clinical research personnel being outsourced to various pharmaceutical companies. CRO clinical research jobs can offer a varied career path for CRAs as it affords the opportunity to work on clinical trials of multiple drugs rather than a single drug at a pharma. CRO pharma jobs can be very fulfilling due to the variety of opportunities offered, the rapid career progression at CROs and the stimulating, fast-paced working environment.
