Our Values

Living our five Values helps us to make Simbec-Orion a great place to work.​

It’s not just about what we do. It’s equally important to think about how we work – our Values are our guiding principles that form our beliefs and behaviours​.​

We use our Values as part of our hiring and on-boarding processes, so we recruit like-minded people with values that align with ours.​ By attracting the right talent, who join a team already proud to work for Simbec-Orion, we will continue to make a difference both to the way we work and to the lives of patients around the world.



We make a difference to people’s lives - through the work we do and the way we do it.

We dream big. We motivate. We inspire change.

Working together, we make a positive impact on drug development for our clients and - most importantly - their patients.

As partners from Phase I to Phase IV of every clinical trial, we combine the personal touch of a smaller CRO with the knowledge, experience and broad range of services of a large one. Because we care ambitiously.

For me, Caring Ambitiously means we are determined to show we care. We care about our Company, our colleagues, our teams and our clients. We strive to create an environment that makes Simbec-Orion a great place to work, supporting personal and career development and building a culture that encourages, supports and celebrates the diverse voices of all our colleagues. Caring ambitiously about each other and the work we do means we care ambitiously where it matters most – improving patients’ lives.

Ana Smith, Chief People Officer


We’re more than just colleagues. We’re a motivated team, united by the same goal - improving patients’ lives.

We work well together and trust each other. We value diversity and each other’s contribution. We partner with our clients to give their studies a more personal approach. We build rapport. And respect. We become an extension of their team, dedicated to their clinical development - whatever the challenges.

To me, a tight knit team means we listen and respect each other and value each other’s contribution.

It means we support each other and can anticipate each other’s needs, and this way of working translates to our clients. Working in a tight knit team means a shared purpose and it is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job.

Ceri Edwards, Managing Director Clinical Pharmacology


We’re determined and committed people with the knowledge and experience to deliver a broad range of services. Nothing is too much trouble. And no project could be in safer hands.

We always try to do it right, first time. No matter what the problem. Or how big the challenge. Our dedication to delivery for clients and ultimately patients, drives us every time without exception.

Being dedicated to delivery is about preparing for the complexity of study delivery as a team, working together to deliver projects on time.

We work hard to delight our clients, and we are proud of the work we do. We make sure that from the beginning, our projects are delivered with care, consideration, and dedication.

Fabrice Chartier, Chief Executive Officer


We’re an agile team, willing and able to adapt to continuously changing circumstances.

We focus on the project, not the problem, anticipating issues before they arise.

We act decisively. And our learning mindset drives ongoing improvement. We’re delivery experts. Always dedicated. Always on time.

Always looking for ways to work harder and smarter for our clients.

Forward Thinking means enabling our business with the right systems to help us thrive.

Tracking industry trends, listening to client and employee feedback and keeping an eye on the competition helps us anticipate what we need next.

Forward Thinking helps us provide Simbec-Orion with the tools you need to evolve workflow, streamline tasks, provide accurate data and achieve your goals.

Jim Kendall, Chief Information Officer


We believe that honesty is the best policy.

Ethics and compliance are at the heart of what we do.

So integrity is everything.

We communicate clearly, openly and with respect. We’re not afraid to talk about things when they go wrong. And we always do the right thing, in the right way - even under challenging circumstances.

We manage expectations, deliver information consistently, and never leave anything unsaid. We work with transparency. Because that’s the honest thing to do.

Radical Honesty is incredibly important. To me it means we are proactive in asking for help and we are open about each challenge we face.

Honest feedback and communication helps us shape the processes we rely on to deliver a consistent, ethically compliant service, which is essential for delivering projects and exceeding our clients’ expectations.
