The Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Clinical Trials Unit (CRCTU) is one of the largest UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) registered clinical trials units in the country and specialises in running cancer clinical trials. The Unit has an extensive portfolio of phase I, II and III clinical trials in adults and children covering a wide range of disease sites. The Unit employs a multidisciplinary team of over 180 staff including statisticians, systematic reviewers, trial management staff, research nurses, trial monitors, programmers, administrators, and IT staff. The CRCTU receives substantial core funding from Cancer Research UK and additional funding from other charities, government, and pharmaceutical companies.
The CRCTU is looking to appoint a Quality Assurance Officer.
The primary responsibility of the Quality Assurance Officers is to further develop and maintain the QMS; this involves writing SOPs and supporting documents, facilitating working groups across other CRCTU teams, and reviewing and updating existing documents. Some delivery of training to CRCTU staff is also involved.
They are also responsible for delivering audits both of internal processes and external collaborators or vendors in line with the CRCTU Internal and External Audit Programmes; this involves UK and potentially international travel, approximately four times per year.
The Quality Assurance Officer will be a member of the Quality Management Team that is also responsible for delivery of on-site monitoring of the CRCTU trial portfolio, to ensure that trials are conducted, recorded, and reported in accordance with the protocol, GCP and the applicable legal regulatory requirements. The Quality Assurance Officer may take on on-site monitoring themselves throughout the UK and the Republic of Ireland and will support the Quality Assurance Manager with line management of Clinical Trials Monitors.
Hybrid working is possible in line with both CRCTU and University of Birmingham policies.
