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 clinical trials.

You will be responsible for the management of large multi-centre randomised controlled trial(s) and overseeing a small portfolio of trials, including the performance and line management of trial managers/coordinators. 

You will be expected to work independently but also part of the wider team working closely with LCTU senior management, NHS clinical and academic staff. You will provide leadership and trial management expertise to maintain the smooth and effective running of the clinical trials and research studies in accordance with the study protocols, ethics and regulatory approvals, SOPs, GCP principles, EU Directives and UK legislation.

About you

The ideal candidate will have proven project, leadership 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.

As part of the University’s ongoing commitment to professional development, this role will also be considered on a seconded basis for existing staff members. Please ensure this is discussed with your line manager prior to applying. More information regarding secondments can be found here
