Why You Should Consider a Career With a Functional Service Provider (FSP)
Unprecedented growth in the life sciences industry has led to increased competition amongst companies to hire the most talented employees. This competition has put job candidates in a powerful position. With so many job openings, life sciences professionals — including those seeking to build a career in clinical trial operations/management, biostatistics, validation and other areas of clinical research — can be selective about whom they work for, the roles they accept and how they shape their career progression.
Smart candidates are using this opportunity to find their ideal jobs: those that will give them security, a competitive salary and benefits and ample opportunities to learn new skills for a more successful long-term career. For many of these candidates, joining a functional service provider (FSP) meets all these criteria.
With over 25 years of FSP experience, in addition to decades of expertise in talent acquisition, strategic resourcing and outsourcing solutions, Advanced Clinical is in a unique position to offer FSP careers in a way that is unmatched by our competition.
“As an FSP, you feel like a part of the company without having to meet some of the requirements of a full-time employee. There can be more flexibility with office and work-from-home time.”
— Advanced Clinical FSP Trial Manager Employee, United States
“I recommend any potential candidate seize an FSP opportunity. Nothing compares to working for a single sponsor in terms of processes, accommodation, workload, communication and work environment.”
— Advanced Clinical FSP Data Management Employee, Eastern Europe
