The Company
Home based in the UK, our client is a highly successful and long established pharmaceutical company that exceeded all of all its worldwide targets last year. The organisation boasts a high investment ratio in drug development over a number of therapeutic areas with a record number of products in clinical studies and more planned. The company policy is to support all clinical trials with the use of IxRS technology. The studies are within the oncology therapeutic area and are global and complex in nature offering a challenging and demanding project based working environment.

The Role
The role is based in the oncology team with internationally based members supporting clinical trials globally. With a policy of IxRS solutions managing all studies, team members are involved and influential in clinical trial planning from the initial stage ensuring maximum effective use of IxRS technology. The key focus is in defining requirements that will meet individual study needs while working closely with internal clients and external vendors ensuring successful system implementation. This involves leading IxRS sub-teams while project managing solution delivery coordinating all aspects of specification, development, user acceptance testing, implementation and training. In addition, there will be involvement in clinical supplies; monitoring and assessing clinical supply demand, labelling coordination and strategic distribution and returns management.
