Talent Intern (University Programs Coordination)

TrialSpark is a technology company that brings new medical treatments to patients faster by reimagining the clinical trial process. We’re fundamentally changing how clinical trials are run, rethinking the trial process both from a technology and operational perspective. To achieve this, we’re bringing together talent from top technology, CRO, and biopharma companies to work side by side.

  • Act as key point of contact between recruiters and business stakeholders for everything to do with university programs.
  • Ensure progress of initiatives (ROI) is tracked and measured with members of the Talent team held accountable for post-program deliverables.
  • Drive simple improvements and solutions (systems, tools, reporting, processes) to increase the efficiency of our university programs efforts.
  • Provide support for design and creative needs (slides, visuals, swag etc) related to our presence at campuses across the US.
  • You may also get a chance to work on People Operations Initiatives with our People team.
