Our vision and values

The things that make us who we are

Be Brave

Be Human

Be Passionate

Be Exceptional

Be Brave: It takes real courage to disrupt the status quo, to rock the boat, to make the difference. Prime people know this will always be encouraged, supported and rewarded – without risk there is never any true innovation.

Be Human: It takes empathy to forge the bonds that unite a truly brilliant team, including our own people, and the external partners we work with. Prime people understand that kindness, compassion and support of the whole person, including any frailties, are fundamental to who we are.

Be Passionate: It takes a genuine love for what you do to create something great. Prime people know that it’s okay to feel strongly about their areas of expertise, to take a stand, to fight a corner. We always debate with vigour, openness and mutual respect.

Be Exceptional: It takes dedication, hard work and a tenacious spirit to achieve the outstanding. Prime people know that what differentiates us from the competition is the power of our combined expertise when we collaborate as one team.

Our journey

Over twenty five years of transformation in science communication

When we began our journey the web was a niche technology. Today the global network empowers everything from clinical trials to scientific publishing and a whole world of research.

The art of science communication has been completely reinvented along the way, and communicating great science has never been as exciting as it is today.

We began our journey as Prime Medica. Now, over twenty five years on, the business has grown organically from one agency, based in one office in northwest England, into a worldwide group of eleven highly regarded, full-service agencies and specialist consultancies, employing over three hundred brilliant, pharma-savvy people across the US, UK, Europe, and New Zealand.

We have become Prime Global. Our people have made this journey possible and continue to drive us forward every day.

Our philosophy

The founder of Prime embodies the spirit of our business

“People are at the heart of healthcare and at the heart of Prime. We show we care deeply about patient health by supporting medical healthcare professionals and providing effective, enriching education and access for the wider healthcare community.

We strive for brilliant scientific communication in an omnichannel world and we’re passionate about delivering programmes that are brimming with creativity, originality and a genuine passion for science.

To fulfil our vision we invest in people and offer exciting, career-enhancing opportunities within a progressive, dynamic and nurturing culture.”
