About the role

Leicester Clinical Trials Unit is undergoing an exciting period of expansion, with new job opportunities arising as a result of an increasing portfolio of trials. We work with both nationally and internationally acclaimed investigators to deliver high quality, high impact clinical research.

We are an ambitious Unit, aiming to provide expert, solution-focussed, flexible support to our customers. Our staff are central to achieving this, and we’re looking for like-minded people to join the team.

We are currently seeking a self-motivated, degree-educated candidate to manage and oversee the delivery of complex and multi-site CTIMP and non-CTIMP clinical trials

You will take responsibility for the initiation, organisation and administration of the trials and supervising a research administrator.  You will be expected to work pro-actively as part of a wider team of NHS clinical and academic staff to ensure the highest standards of research governance and to deliver the trials on time and to budget.

You will provide trial management expertise to maintain the smooth and effective running of all research studies in accordance with the study protocols, ethical and regulatory approvals, SOPs, the principles of GCP, and applicable EU Directives and UK legislation.

About you

The ideal candidate will have proven project and line management skills, with an excellent understanding of clinical research and trial management methodology. You must be able to work independently, managing your own workload and that of trial administration staff. Experience of working with complex databases and advanced word processing skills are essential for this role.
