The post holder will be responsible for management of all administrative duties required for the effective execution of clinical trials and studies under their remit at the NEA Unit. Duties will include liaising with Sponsors and ethics committees, preparing for monitoring visits, and ensuring required site file and essential documents are in place. It will also involve supporting specific projects and putting in place efficient processes.

Proven experience of working within a health research setting in a project management and administrative capacity is vital. Applicants should hold a relevant University degree or equivalent knowledge / experience and be Good Clinical Practice certified.
