A leading global biopharmaceutical services provider is to expand its workforce to 200 at a new base in Dublin.

Parexel is opening what it calls a global decision-making hub in the Kilmainham area with 70 staff in place, and management plans to hire another 130 people over the next 12 to 18 months as business develops.

The company, whose headquarters are in Boston, provides research, consulting, medical communications and technology solutions and services to the worldwide pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries.

Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said: "Life sciences is a key sector which we have targeted as part of our Action Plan for Jobs, and in recent years we have seen an impressive jobs performance in this area, both in Dublin and across the country."

Parexel has operations in 51 countries around the world and employs about 17,440 people.

Staff hired for the Irish operation will include senior decision-makers and people working in all areas of the business from clinical to technology, legal, consulting and logistics.
