I work at ICON as a Senior CRA and have done so for the past two years. I’ve worked in the industry for over 20 years: I graduated with a BSc in Business Management as a Certified Clinical Research Associate (CCRA) and have worked as a study coordinator, site director, CRA and now a Senior CRA.
Before joining ICON, I already had experience of working with the company during my time as a study coordinator. Their CRAs were very professional and knowledgeable and played a factor in my decision to join. I found the professionalism and knowledge to be consistent when I joined as a Senior CRA – everyone here is great at what they do and works hard to get the job done. When we deal with things like patient safety and effective drug development, it’s so important to have staff who actually care.
My job isn’t just about turning up and delivering – we’re always encouraged to learn and develop professionally. I’ve taken several courses through ICON’s learning portal to help assist me with my job and enhance my therapeutic understanding. I also assist with evaluating other CRAs and am a first point of contact for them to help support them when they join the team.
I’d recommend anyone who cares about the clinical research industry to join ICON. If you’re keen to develop and enjoy interacting with other team members to complete exciting projects, then you’d really enjoy working at ICON!
