We have some terrific job opportunities at Catalyst Clinical Research, and our culture is rooted in transparency and values. You have the experience, and we have the position – but can you be sure the job you are interviewing for is real?

If you are interested in joining the Catalyst team and have been contacted by a recruiter, here are a few things you will never see from us during the interview process:  

  • Requests to purchase equipment, deposit funds, or make any monetary transactions.

If you suspect you have been targeted with recruitment fraud to join our company, please report it by emailing 

Not sure? Email us anyway. A Catalyst representative will contact you to verify the position you have been recruited to fill and can confirm if a bad actor is representing a member of our team.
