Worldwide Clinical Trials – Why Work For Us?

Do you want to be a part of something different?

Do you want to change the industry, and help save lives?

Do you want an Uncommon career?

If yes, then let’s talk.

We’re an award-winning CRO uncommonly committed to excellence. In fact this year Life Science Leader rated us as leading the pack in 12 of 15 categories in their CRO Leadership Awards. (We know our work speaks for itself, but we’ll celebrate the industry recognition and the amazing team is takes to continue to excel.)

The Work we Do

We specialize in key therapeutic areas, including: Neuroscience/Central Nervous System (neurology, psychiatry, and analgesia), Cardiovascular, Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Disorders (IMID) and Rare Diseases. We don’t want to be everything to everyone, so we specialize in where our expertise is, and we focus our mission, and our people on changing lives in areas where we can have the biggest impact.

Therapeutic Specialization: Focused Expertise

Worldwide team members are pioneers in contract research, offering innovative approaches, insights and expertise that don’t just meet the standard, they set the standard. Trials are staffed by a sophisticated team of physicians, project managers, regulatory and quality specialists, researchers and back-end support personnel all working closely together to provide a full spectrum of end-to-end CRO services.

Global Footprint, One Team

Our clinical operations, medical and scientific personnel are found in more than 60 countries, across over 30 offices. We are a global company but we operate as one team; we collaborate and communicate seamlessly, across borders and projects. 

With offices across the Americas, Europe, and Asia we provide access to sites and patient populations around the world. This enables us to rapidly operationalize clinical studies for “difficult to find, difficult to treat patients,” and plan for potential differences in utilization across geographic regions.

Delighting employees is our # 1 priority, and we place a high value on our local teams. We work hard to ensure that while we oversee and support the interesting and extraordinarily important work of clinical trials, that we also find time to have fun, celebrate one another, and continue to grow and develop. At Worldwide, we say it’s not a “job” but a career, and we mean it.

Founded in 1986 by Dr. Neal R. Cutler and his team, Worldwide Clinical Trials began as an investigational site before expanding to become a global CRO in 1995. Our business philosophy places an emphasis on site and patient focused clinical research.

Our leaders, who personally guide our teams across the globe, and remain consistently accessible to our customers, are recognized by the industry as some of the best in the business. In fact, just this year our Founder and CEO. Dr. Neal Cutler, was recognized by European CEO Magazine as the Best CEO in the CRO Industry. And, our Chief Medical & Scientific Officer, Dr. Michael Murphy received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the CARE Awards.

If you’re looking to join an energetic and collaborative team that is valued and supported by company leadership, committed to operational excellence and open to creativity and innovation, Worldwide Clinical Trials could be the ideal place for you.

We are a people-centric company, so we taking hiring the best very seriously.

If you are an industry veteran, or if you are just starting out in clinical research but want to become the very best...

If want to work with purpose each and every day...

If you want to help change and save lives...

If you want to be challenged, nurtured and inspired...

(Head on over to our careers website for more info!)

At Worldwide, our people drive our success, which is why we hire the best and brightest talent from across the globe. But we don't just hire people with the right experience. We hire the right people with the right experience, people who want to work within a global company and contribute to a collective, global culture, who are curious and driven...but above all, who find a purpose in the work that we do. We also look for people who want to be part of an Uncommon team, doing important work, but in ways that defies the status quo and helps push for new ways forward, in an constantly evolving, exciting industry.

We know that our culture is defined not by a mission statement, though we do have one, but by the Uncommon men and women who chose to call Worldwide home. We encourage our people to be who they are. To bring their unique background, expertise and personality to their work, day in and day out. 

Culture is more than holiday parties and softball teams (though we have both). It's more than contests and fundraisers (though we do these, too). And, it's about more than a united spirit, a "vibe" that you get when you visit one of our offices and the team greets you with open arms and can't wait to show you around. (Though this happens all the time...)

At Worldwide, we're about creating an environment where you can be you. You can be Uncommon. You can be excellent. And you can be a part of the future. And we think we're pretty good at that.

    I have been working at Worldwide Clinical Trials full-time (Less than a year)


    I have been at Worldwide for about 4 months. Prior to that I worked for a small boutique monitoring company. I was there for ten years, loved my job, loved the work, the diversity of study disciplines and working both drug and device trials. I traveled throughout North America and Western Europe. But, work became scarce for a while, and I needed a steady income for my family. Enter, WCT. They offered a great salary, they are small enough that you’re not just another CRA, and I’m lucky enough to have a great manager. Yes, they come with multiple layers of management, multiple and redundant processes, and way more in-the-office time than is sometimes necessary. But overall they are a really good company. In the last year they have renewed their commitment to quality, their staff, and their product. I believe that the top line management has a sincere desire to take this company to a best in class example of the value that a CRO can bring to the sponsor. The only complaint that I have at this point is that I was not assigned to the study discipline that I was being recruited for. There is still a bit of a disconnect between the resourcing staff and the study management staff. If you want to work for a CRO, have good solid CRA experience, and high standards, you should consider Worldwide Clinical Trials.


    As noted previously above, very few cons

    Negative Experience


    Applied online, was contacted by a recruiter for a 30min screening. Recruiter sent an online assessment to complete within 24hrs of our talk. Completed the assessment...a week goes by without additional contact. I email the recruiter to express my continued interest in the position, she replied “ we are definitely still interested, but going through some structural changes, I should hear something from management by the end of the week”....never heard anything else from recruiter. How unprofessional is that?
