This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) registered clinical trials units in the country. The Cancer Research UK Clinical Trials Unit (CRCTU) is based in the Institute of Cancer & Genomic Sciences, University of Birmingham and specialises in running cancer clinical trials.

The CRCTU receives substantial core funding from Cancer Research UK and additional funding from other charities, government and pharmaceutical companies.

The successful candidate will be responsible for ensuring central monitoring and on-site monitoring of the CRCTU trials portfolio is performed throughout the UK and other countries, thereby ensuring that a trial is run following the trial protocol and in accordance with current regulatory, ethical and quality standards. This will include overseeing the day-to-day management of a team of Monitors.  The Senior Monitor will also be actively involved in setting up and managing the monitoring of international trials to the appropriate quality standards.

Applicants should have a higher degree in a relevant biomedical or associated subject or be a graduate with extensive experience of in-house and on-site monitoring of clinical trials. They will have a proven knowledge of the international guidelines that govern clinical trials specifically with regard to monitoring. They will have excellent interpersonal, organisational, IT and communication skills and will be able to prioritise both their own and others’ workload in order to meet deadlines. They will have a flexible and pro-active approach, demonstrating a high level of accuracy and attention to detail. They will be able to work on their own initiative and problem solve. They will be able to work independently and as part of a team.

Applicants should be prepared to travel both nationally and internationally (on occasion).

The University supports hybrid working where it is feasible, appropriate, following an assessment of the suitability of the role in question, and subject to the individual expressing a desire to work in a hybrid manner. There is an expectation that no-one should spend 100% of their time working away from their work location, unless government legislation dictates it.
