If the answers to the above are “YES” then I would welcome hearing from you.

The Company
The company is a highly successful pharmaceutical organisation that is expanding through exceeding performance, revenue and profit targets. The organisation’s success is due to bringing a succession of new products to market and supports this with a high investment ratio in drug development and record number of compounds in clinical studies. Oncology is the largest therapeutic area for development where the company as it continues to enhance its position as a pioneer in this field.    

The Role
The company are expanding oncology clinical activities with further compound approvals for early and late phase studies. The role involves shared management of a large, typically late phase study, to be run in multiple countries (across Europe and Asia-Pacific as a minimum but most likely also in the US, Latin America, Russian and China). The last study requiring an Associate level Study Manager is now running across the globe and with 4,000 patients in 42 countries (driven by patient availability). The study will be complex in nature and involve an emphasis on aspects such as patient recruitment strategy, patient retention and data quality.

The Associate Study Manager is responsible for aspects of the study from conception to final medical report including expenditure and measurable deliverables. These responsibilities encompass all aspects of the planning, implementation, analysis and reporting of the study activities within the timelines and budgets. An important aspect will be acting as a key member of the global study management team displaying strong leadership and patient focus abilities.

A full job description is available on request.   

The Contract
The contract is for an initial 12 months which will extendable by 12-month periods. The expectation is to work with the company for the duration of the study phase as a minimum however they look to secure long term relationships with contractors. The company is highly “contractor friendly” with a significant proportion of clinical management staff being “in-sourced colleagues” who are supported through a robust on-boarding and training program. The contract provides the security of a 2-month notice period with a competitive daily rate and flexible 7 hour working day.

We can accommodate notice periods / future availability dates with a flexible start date; securing the right candidate is of prime importance.  

We are seeking a committed individual with multi-country clinical trial management / leadership experience which has included working in the Oncology TA; although this does not need to be your only TA focus.  Due to the international nature of the study and study team you will need to demonstrate a strong appreciation of working with a variety of cultures. Candidates will be considered from pharmaceutical, bio-tech, CRO and not-for-profit company environments. Team fit and shared values will form an important part of the selection criteria due to the anticipated longevity of the contract (which could include permanent employment opportunities although long term contractors are equally respected).  

I look forward to hearing from you.
