If you are an experienced Clinical Learning Consultant or a Study Manager, Process Improvement Manager, Feasibility Manager, Study Start up Specialist etc looking for a new challenge this opportunity is worth exploring. It will be a long-term contract placement and is not a role for a Trainer.

The company operates in a number of therapeutic areas including oncology, cardiology, hematology, gynecology and ophthalmology.  

The Role
The focus of this role is to provide an Expert Partner service on Learning Culture, Theory and Methodology to the globally based clinical trial community within the company to ascertain and provide learning solutions. This will involve working with key members of the clinical teams, undertaking critical analysis, process analysis and performance reviews to identify the root cause of global business issues and competency gaps. You will work closely with the Process Excellence team who will undertake implementing identified process improvements while the Learning and Innovation Design team will be responsible for developing the course material for E-Learning or class room training. All class room training is delivered by the individual clinical groups/external training service providers. Learning solutions can be developed for individuals, specific studies, groups/departments or company wide (typically when dealing with regulatory changes) including for training events where applicable.  

This role is very much about communication and analysis based on your understanding of clinical trial processes, procedures, standards and regulations. It involves supporting all therapeutic areas and disciplines within the clinical development community which is a total of 97 job functions.

A full job specification is available on request.

The Contract
The contract is for an initial 12 months which will extendable by 12-month periods. The company are looking to secure a long-term relationship with the job holder with the last incumbent holding the role for 8 years as a contractor before moving to another part of the business.

The contract provides the security of a 2-month notice period with a competitive daily rate and flexible 7 hour working day.  

We are able to accommodate notice periods with a flexible start date; securing the right candidate is of prime importance. 

We are seeking a highly experienced clinical trial operative for this senior role. You will need to have a broad understanding of clinical trials and the disciplines that work within it with an emphasis on processes, procedures, performance and regulatory standards. While this role would obviously suit a Learning Development Consultant it would also be applicable to a Clinical Study Manager, Process Improvement Manager, Feasibility Manager, Study Start Up Specialist or any number of roles involved in broad clinical trial design, analysis and management. You will need at least 8 years’ experience working at a global clinical level.
