Global biopharmaceutical services provider to grow office and create 200 jobs in next 12-18 months
28 July 2015
PAREXEL International Corporation, a global biopharmaceutical services provider, is opening a global decision-making hub in Kilmainham, Co Dublin. PAREXEL plans to hire an additional 130 people over the next 12 to 18 months across all areas of its business – clinical, technology, legal, consulting, and logistics – and at all levels, including senior decision-making roles. Seventy employees are already in place, and recruitment is under way for the new positions.
“Europe is important to our growth and business strategy, and Ireland specifically is a key country from which we can better serve our customers and continue our growth,” said Douglas A Batt, senior vice-president and general counsel, PAREXEL. “This office will be a global decision-making hub for our company.
“Senior leaders based here will be making strategic decisions for the company worldwide, and this office will play a critical role in continuing to bring PAREXEL’s global brand to the world.”
Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland, said: PAREXEL’s decision to locate in Ireland is an endorsement of the skills available to biopharmaceutical companies here. Ireland is the perfect place in which to locate a global hub – our location facilitates access into Europe, the Middle East and further afield.
“IDA Ireland has targeted the life sciences, and in particular, the biopharmaceuticals sector for several years now – PAREXEL will be joining a very large cluster of biopharma companies that have already chosen Ireland as a place to locate business.”http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/07/28/global-biopharmaceutical-services-provider-grow-office-create-200-jobs-next-12-18-months/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/apa1.pnghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/apa1-300x300.pngNewsDublin,pharma
