Clinical Trial Monitor

Southampton Clinical Trials Unit

Location:  Southampton General Hospital
Salary:   £25,217 to £30,046 per annum
Full Time Fixed Term for 12 months
Closing Date:  Monday 24 August 2020
Interview Date:   To be confirmed
Reference:  1280920CM

The Southampton Clinical Trials Unit (SCTU), usually based at Southampton General Hospital, manages a growing portfolio of multi-centre clinical trials that will directly influence routine clinical practice. At the current time CTU staff are mainly working from home, due to the pandemic; the appointed candidate should therefore be prepared to work from home until we are allowed back into the CTU offices.

Due to new grant awards and an internal re-organisation we have a vacancy for a Clinical Trial Monitor to join the Quality, Pharmacovigilance and Monitoring team to monitor one or more trials. This is an exciting opportunity for someone with previous clinical trials experience to join a CTU which has full registration status from the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC). The successful candidate will be appointed at level 3.

The successful applicant will ideally have experience of working on clinical trials within the NHS or commercial health research sector. Experience of oncology trials would be an advantage but not essential. The successful applicant will also have excellent organisation and communication skills, a good understanding and knowledge of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and clinical trial regulations.

The role in “normal times” involves travel to trial sites (both hospital and GP surgeries) in the UK. This will be assessed on a continuing basis and travel will only be resumed when appropriate.

The employing organisation is the University of Southampton which offers a competitive salary, pension scheme and other benefits.  The post is offered on a one year fixed term contract in the first instance with the possibility of an extension. This is a full time post but part time may be considered. The successful candidate will be expected to work a minimum of 0.8 FTE to fulfil the duties of the post.

The CTU is part of a strong research environment in Southampton which includes the Cancer Research UK Clinical Centre, Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre, Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility and NHS R&D Management.
