Job Description

Are you seeking a home-based contract with flexible working hours? Are you an IxRS / IRT Project Manager with extensive experience in providing IxRS solutions to study needs? Perhaps you are you working for an IxRS service provider and want to gain expertise in a sponsor, pharmaceutical company environment. Would you like to be involved in clinical studies from the conception stage, inputting to the protocols ensuring the best use of the IxRS solution? Can you act as a key study team member for assigned projects and the IxRS SME to the team? Are you looking to form a long-term relationship with an organisation that engages contractors in strategic roles?

If the answer to the above questions is YES, then I would welcome hearing from you.

The Company
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 policy is to support all clinical trials using IxRS technology working with a range of industry leading platforms from several IRT service providers.

The Role
As a member of the global IxRS Management team and, as a key study team member for assigned projects, this role focuses on providing solutions to study requirements across all therapeutic area. Typically, most studies are global, and many are highly complex. Acting as the IxRS SME to the study team, you will be influential in clinical trial planning and protocol development ensuring the maximum effective use of IRT technology. Key activities include defining requirements that will meet individual study needs while working closely with external vendors ensuring timely system development and implementation. You will lead IxRS sub-teams while project managing solution delivery coordinating all aspects of specification, development / build, user acceptance testing, implementation and training. In addition, there will be involvement in clinical supplies including assessing and monitoring IMP demand, labelling coordination and strategic distribution plus returns management.

The Contract
The role is offered on a home-working basis with funded visits to the offices when required. The contract is for an initial 12 months, extendable by 12-month periods during the 10th month of the contract. The company forms long-term relationships with contractors in a highly “contractor friendly” environment with a significant proportion of clinical management staff being “in-sourced colleagues”. You will be supported by a robust training program and the provision of home office communication equipment (laptop/phone). The contract provides the security of a 2-month notice period with a competitive daily rate and a flexible 7 hour working day.

Team fit and shared values form an important part of the selection criteria due to the longevity of the contract which could include permanent employment opportunities (although long term contractors are equally respected; some of our contractors are now in their 7th year).

We can accommodate notice periods / future availability dates, as securing the right candidate is of prime importance.

We are seeking experienced and motivated individuals who have specified and project managed IxRS solutions through to implementation. The role will suit someone from either an IRT service provider or pharmaceutical company environment. The role is open to people whose focus is Project Managing the provision of IxRS solutions or alternatively Clinical Trial Supplies incorporating IxRS solutions.
