Job Description

Do you have a strong CTS background? Are you limited with your career options, due to where you live? A brand new home-based role has been created, to work anywhere within the UK, with the world’s leading clinical supply service provider. The Supply Chain Management team develop and deliver clinical supply chain strategies, encompassing processes, procedures and standards that are utilised at project, programme and account-wide levels. The role encompasses working with key strategic clients ensuring that robust supply chain solutions integrate with each client’s processes and procedures, while working to their standards. This role could suit a Clinical Supply professional or a person with related skills in IxRS, clinical trial services, clinical pharmacy, clinical logistical services etc. 

The Company
Our client focuses on managing the packaging, labelling and distribution requirements of clinical trials across the world. As clinical trials have increasingly complex supply chains, the organisation’s integrated solutions provide the sophistication to meet these challenges with the flexibility to integrate into clients’ own processes and procedures. This organisation is the global market leader in CTS solutions, with operations in the US, UK, Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific which are backed by a global distribution infrastructure.

The Role
The Supply Chain Manager’s role focuses on the interpretation of clinical protocols and clients’ operating procedures that will be successfully interpreted into robust supply chain solutions. Working directly with key stakeholders, often at programme or account-wide level, you will develop processes and procedures ensuring clinical stock availability through forecasting, scheduling, operational coordination and risk management. You will have the ability to pull together cross-functional teams for study management activities and to ensure full regulatory compliance. Internal contacts will include the Client Services Project Management team while externally they will include CROs, IVR/IWR providers, client clinical supply teams and client clinical management teams.

While you will eventually work from home, please note that you must be able to commit to a training period of around 3-4 months, during which you will be based full-time at the company’s site in the South East. Accommodation expenses will be covered for this period.

Home-based in the UK, with full home office support, this position offers a highly competitive salary to £45,000pa plus contributory pension scheme, annual bonus scheme and private health cover.

The successful candidate will have a full understanding of Project Management and Supply Chain Management relative to Clinical Supplies. This will include a knowledge of all trial phases and how protocols translate into the entire supply chain plan. Candidates are welcome from both service provider and sponsor/pharmaceutical company environments. This role could suit a Clinical Supplies professional or a person with related skills in IxRS, clinical pharmacy, clinical trial services, clinical logistical services etc.   

All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence and a confidential conversation can be arranged with the Recruiter on request.
