PRA expands Pennsylvania workforce
PRA Health Sciences (PRA), a global CRO based in Raleigh, N.C., is expanding its presence in Pennsylvania. Employees recently relocated from the company’s Horsham and Fort Washington facilities to PRA’s new modern office space in Blue Bell, now the company’s largest office worldwide. PRA currently has more than 1,000 employees in Pennsylvania and is looking to add additional staff.
PRA is hiring across all major divisions, including clinical operations areas and corporate functions. Currently 150 positions are available at the Blue Bell office and surrounding areas. Information about PRA career opportunities can be found at www.DiscoverYourPRA.com.
To date, PRA has invested nearly $4 million in the Blue Bell expansion project. The project is expected to create at least 250 new full-time jobs by the end of 2016, and will retain 1,150 existing employees. Based on the project’s significant economic impact, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) provided PRA with a $750,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant.
The PRA Blue Bell office is located at 731 Arbor Way. The facility includes state-of-the-art shared tenant conference space, staff workplace benefits and a fitness center. With 148,000 square feet, the building can accommodate approximately 860 PRA employees.
