About the role

We have an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Trial Administrator (CTA) (maternity cover) to join the Oncology Clinical Trials Office (OCTO), working in a team of trial management professionals, running clinical trials and studies across a varied portfolio. The post holder will be responsible for a range of activities required in the day-to-day running of clinical trials. CTAs will usually work on 1-3 trials, offering the opportunity to be involved in and learn about a wide range of clinical trial management activities. OCTO is based in the Department of Oncology, University of Oxford. OCTO develops and runs academic clinical trials and studies and is proactive in improving clinical trial procedures. Working to the highest standards our trials are concerned with the practical application of high-quality clinical research into early detection and prevention strategies and innovative and effective cancer therapies. This post is a maternity cover for 12 months and is offered full-time, although part-time hours (minimum of 80% FTE, worked over no fewer than four days a week) may be considered.

The post is based in Oncology Clinical Trials Office (OCTO), Level 2, Cancer & Haematology Department, Churchill Hospital, Headington, Oxford, OX3 7LE. Due to the location, you will be required to apply for and obtain an NHS Honorary Contract in order to carry out this role. There will be the occasional need to travel to participating hospitals or national meetings (approximately twice a year, sometimes with the need for overnight stays).

About you

You will be educated to at least A-level in a biomedical or associated subject (or other relevant qualification) and have previous experience in a clinical research setting, with an understanding of Good Clinical Practice (GCP). You will have experience of managing and working with clinical research or patient data e.g. data entry, data coding, entry validation and reporting, with critical and intelligent attention to detail and high standards of accuracy. You will have effective communication and inter-personal skills, including written and spoken English, and strong administrative skills including email, minute-taking, and use of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Experience of working on oncology clinical trials in a non-commercial setting would be advantageous.
