Job Description

Are you seeking a home-based contract in the UK with flexible working hours? Are you a Clinical Study Manager with extensive global trial leadership experience and strong expertise in Oncology studies? Are you looking for a challenging long-term contract with an innovator in the Oncology field, leading an internationally-based team passionate about their work? Are you looking to form a strong 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
You will join a highly successful pharmaceutical organisation that is expanding through exceeding its performance, revenue and profit targets. The organisation has a significant investment ratio in drug development with a record number of compounds in clinical studies. Oncology is the largest therapeutic area for development within the company, as it continues to enhance its position as a pioneer and innovator in this field.    
The Role
The focus of this role is study ownership and study team leadership of an interventional Oncology study that will be running in multiple countries (Europe and Asia Pacific at least but most likely US, Latin America, Russia and China as well) dependent on patient availability. The study will be complex in nature and involves an emphasis on aspects such as patient recruitment strategy, patient retention and data quality as well as overall study leadership.
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, analysis and reporting of the study within the timelines and budgets. An important element is the identification and leadership of a cross-functional international team and a strong appreciation of working with other cultures.
A full job specification is available on request.
The Contract
The contract is for an initial 12 months and will be extendable in 12-month periods. The expectation is to work with the company for the duration of the study phase as a minimum, though they look to secure longer-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 longer notice periods if needed; securing the right candidate is of prime importance. 
We are seeking a committed and professional individual with global clinical trial management and study team leadership experience in Oncology studies. Oncology knowledge should incorporate a strong patient focus, safety criteria and endpoints. 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, biotech, 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).
We look forward to hearing from you.
