Why work here
The difference between tranScrip and its competitors is fundamental at many levels and derives from our unique working structure which allows tranScrip and its clients to maximise efficiency in the evolving world of pharmaceuticals, where drug development and marketing is conducted by a myriad of players all collaborating to contain the colossal expense of fixed overheads of skilled professionals in every sector.
Having been at tranScrip since its foundation, it still amazes me what expertise and competence lies within our teams e.g. we have never failed to get a client a license when working on a submission or made it possible for numbers of biotechs to transition their drug into man. Our work is always complex, varied and hugely interesting, why would I want to stop?
Senior Partner since 2008
I enjoy the challenge from the wide variety of projects. No two jobs are the same; there’s always something new to learn.
Senior Partner since 2009
When I wake up in the morning, I want to go to work to feel valued and know that I am helping to truly make a difference. At tranScrip I do.
Employee since 2017
The type of projects we support at tranScrip vary and you don’t always know what type of working is going to come in from one week to the next, but this has given me such a breadth of experience that I don’t feel like I would have got anywhere else. I’ve been kept on my toes but I love the fact that no two days are the same.
Employee since 2011
I was welcomed into tranScrip’s positive environment by a supportive and caring team, where each partner and employee is treated as an individual and encouraged to thrive. Working at tranScrip has already offered me new and exciting challenges and numerous opportunities for professional growth and personal development.

tranScrip has all the normal governance structures in place, as would be expected for any company – a Chairman and a Board, a Managing Partner and Management Team, Finance Department, Project Management and Quality Assurance systems, etc.
Therapeutic area and functional teams group together to run the different therapeutic (e.g. Infectious Diseases, Oncology, Respiratory, etc) and functional (e.g. Regulatory and Drug Safety) activities as business units supported by the business development, project management and finance functions of the organisation.
Continuing professional development and re-validation is given strong emphasis and all staff are expected to stay up to date with the current regulations and therapeutic skills.
All staff are covered by tranScrip’s professional insurance.
tranScrip is inspected by regulatory agencies as a normal CRO so quality systems play an important role in our daily work.
Projects are very varied in content and size, so teams may consist of one individual or many partners and employees. Projects can have duration ranging from hours for ad hoc advice to years, in cases of complex regulatory or drug development activities.
Critical to tranScrip’s clients is consistency and continuity of support and tranScrip is proud of the fact that staff turnover is minimal; a testimonial to its ability to bring like-minded people together and keep them happy and fulfilled.
Projects come from all over the world and cover the whole of product lifecycle from preclinical research to full development, registration and post-licensing activities.
Staff are expected to extend and maintain their cutting edge knowledge and wherever possible lead the development of scientific knowledge and current industry practice, with each person having access to an allowance to spend on international working parties, conferences or training. Work is not everything and cohesion is maintained within a geographically dispersed organisation by the monthly meetings and parties, charitable events etc.
tranScrip is a rapidly growing organisation both within the EU and globally and is also developing its functional reach, providing lots of opportunities for career growth at all levels. We are already a diverse and inclusive organisation where development is purely based on merit.
