INC Research – Why Work For Us?


We’re the clinical research organization that provides a full range of services to help you develop the medicines people need.

Getting the data you need to know to take your medicines further.

We help you work your way

You get more out your work life when you’re happy, and we get more out of you too. So we’ve set up a few working schemes that help you fit in the other things that make your life meaningful. Where appropriate for your job role, we offer flextime to make choosing your working hours more flexible. We’re also set up for telecommuting: A large proportion of our employees work remotely, saving valuable hours that might otherwise be spent stuck in traffic.


We like to work with very different medicines

It gets us excited when your research ambitions intend to break the boundaries of modern medicine. To accomplish this, you’ll often need to develop a new research or data capture technique. We’ve grown our early phase resources only through creating new resources for adventurous medicines, and we’d love to do the same for you too.  

Our proprietary electronic capture system (Scheduled Measurement System) contains a wide array of validated pharmacodynamics assessments enabling characterization of your medicines. This system has generated extensive data for hundreds of early phase studies for successful submission and review by regulatory authorities.


We work together to support your development

Clinical development is all about collaboration – close working with sites, with investigators, with patients, with sponsors, with data. Everything needs to be connected to work well. And the same goes for our employee training programs. To make sure we provide the most robust training schemes available, we’ve collaborated with the International Academy of Clinical Research. Doing so, we’ve created the first ever clinical research monitor accreditation program. It’s an internationally-recognized standard for competence in clinical research monitoring.
And, in 2013, we received IACET’s Exemplar Award for Internal Training. So when it comes to self-development, you’ll know you’ve joined the right team.

We reward you for being you

Our Star and Superstar awards are given to every INC employee who makes an extraordinary contribution toward our success. In 2013, over 15 percent of our employees were rewarded with this accolade together with a monetary bonus. And we’re so proud of the achievements of our employees, we regularly nominate them for industry-wide recognition. In fact, we’ve supplied several winners at the Pharmatimes U.S. Clinical Researcher of the Year Award over the past few years.

We help you take your clinical research career anywhere

We’ve got an attitude at INC: “Can do, I own it.” Absolutely everyone has ownership of what they do here. And because we’re given the freedom and responsibility to really own our projects, we can take them to new levels. And that means we can take our careers wherever we want them, too.

We bring the world closer

In 2013, we added new offices in Japan and Indonesia to our global array of places to work. In total, we’ve got offices in 64 locations and our work spans over a hundred countries. But although we’re widely dispersed, we’re also tightly knit. Our specially created employee intranet (incorporating a web-based messaging system) and our regular face-to-face team meetings for office-based staff mean that wherever you work at INC, you’re always close to someone who’s here to support you.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at INC Research.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with 3 managers during a 2-3 hour period. They all pretty much asked why I was leaving my current position then went down my resume confirming I was skilled in the skills I said I was.

    Interview Questions
    • From what I remember, there were no real thorough "questions"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was given the amount I asked for when I was hired 5 years ago. I don't know how competitive they are with salaries now but I will say in 5 years I've only seen an increase of 6k which is awful.
