Alex Butcher

Alex joined Next Phase in early 2019, bringing significant life science expertise from her career that has been built across the Pharma and Clinical Research sectors. Alex has extensive experience in placing permanent and contract staff in a range of roles across the UK and Europe, with a particular focus on Clinical Supplies, associated Clinical Trial services, and Informatics.

Testing trial medicines on a global basis is becoming more complicated, from the perspective of supply forecasting and management. This can be due to changing import / export regulations, temperature-sensitive products, planning uncertainties, difficult-to-reach geographical regions and small supply / high value biologics. A flawless clinical supply chain requires the right processes, facilities and technology. Central to this are the people who manage the process from start to end; and it is important to work with a recruiter like Alex, who understands this sector and has a successful track record of placing highly skilled individuals with CTS expertise.


The disciplines in which Alex focuses include:

• Clinical Supply Planning & Strategy
• CTS Project Management and Supply Chain Optimisation
• Randomization & Clinical Trial Management Services – RTSM, IRT, IVRS, IWRS, IXRS
• Clinical Systems and Informatics
• Packaging and Labeling
• Storage & Distribution
• Returns & Destruction

Through a deep understanding of both our clients and those she represents, Alex connects people around the world who make a genuine difference to everyday lives - something that everyone at Next Phase is proud to be part of.
