Job Description

Are you seeking a home-based contract in the UK with flexible working hours? Are you a Clinical Study Manager with extensive international trial, study team leadership and project management experience? Are your looking for a challenging long-term contract (minimum 2 years) with an innovator developing compounds in the fields of cardiology, pulmonology, rheumatoid arthritis, overactive bladder and polycystic ovary. Are you looking to form a long-term relationship with an organisation that engages contractors in strategic roles?

If the answer to each of these questions is 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 has a significant investment ratio in drug development with a record number of compounds in clinical studies. The company is now trialing compounds in specific indication areas with a suite of clinical trials approved for phase 2 and beyond.

The Role
The focus of this role is study ownership and study team leadership of an interventional study that will be running in multiple countries, predominantly Europe but may include the US and Asia Pacific. There is an emphasis on project management, team training, data quality and overall leadership abilities.

The Study Manager is responsible for all aspects of the assigned study from conception to final medical report including the budget and measurable deliverables. The responsibilities encompass all aspects of the planning, implementation, training, analysis and reporting of the study within the timelines and budgets. An important element is the identification and leadership of a cross-functional internationally based study team and a strong appreciation of working with other cultures.

The majority of the new studies approved are phase 2, lasting around 2 years. The company are keen that the Study Manager is willing to continue leading managing the study for phase 3 (hence the long-term contract availability).  

A full job specification is available on request.

The Contract
The contract is for an initial 12 months 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 looking for Study Managers who can start their contracts in February, March or April 2019. Interviews will be held in December or January.  

We are seeking committed and dynamic individuals with international clinical trial management, study team leadership and project management experience in any TA. Due to the international nature of the studies 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 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.
