What's it like, working for PARI? What exactly can you expect from us? What does PARI's slogan "Breathe Freely" mean to you personally? That's of course difficult to put into words: you have to experience it yourself. But it's not until you work with colleagues day in, day out that you really discover the heart and soul of PARI, its staff: such teamwork is full of exciting challenges. Our vision is to improve the lives of those affected by respiratory diseases and those who provide care to them.

PARI's strength: we combine the benefits of a traditional medium-sized company with the complex operations of an internationally successful player. This means: fast decision-making, an open communications culture and an extremely caring and considerate atmosphere. This forms the basis for bundled innovative strength and outstanding results at PARI.

What you'll also find here: we offer you the opportunity of putting your own ideas into practice. After all, every new suggestion might point the way towards our future. This is why we are open-minded to the personal opinions of all staff and will discuss every apparent brain wave frankly and honestly. And give vent to our convictions by facing up to things and speaking unpleasant truths - if that's what it takes. So we are all pulling together and prove we can hold out until we achieve our goals.

At the same time the size of the company allows us to remain flexible, so offering you plenty of elbow-room: both in abstract and in more material terms. We demand a lot but offer encouragement, working together for advancement and growing through new ideas and topics. At PARI we don't just deal in abstracts: we are always aware of our responsibility for customers and patients.

When working at PARI, you have to put your heart into it - it's not a place for airheads. Although we mainly deal with the lungs as a research medical device and pharmaceutical company, we still want you to put your heart into your work. Only if you have a real enthusiasm for our vision will you fit in here. No matter what skills you have to offer (depending on the position involved), you need to be a team player while being used to working very much on your own initiative. That means you're willing to take responsibility for your work and are self-motivated. It therefore goes without saying that if you are looking for your first job, you may have relevant work experience or placements behind you. We can't deny it: we like throwing talented junior staff in at the deep end to harden them up so they come out fighting strong.

And before we forget: a sense of humour won't hurt either whether you're in the lab, office or factory. Or to put it another way, we take humour very seriously!
