About the role

We have an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Trial Assistant to join the Early Phase Clinical Trials Unit (EPCTU) within the Cancer and Haematology Centre at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford. The unit recruits approximately 150 patients each year onto Early Phase (phase I/II) oncology and haematology trials.

This post is suited to someone wishing to embark on a career path focused on clinical trials. You will assist in specialised clinical data management within the unit's Data Management Team. The primary responsibility is completion of case report forms (CRFs) to record medical research data. You will be required work closely with the unit's clinical staff to resolve subsequent data queries. You will also be responsible for organising and hosting monitoring visits required by trial sponsors.

In addition, you will provide some administrative support to the research nursing team. This will involve; organising screening appointments, admissions and tests that are mandated by the research protocol and communicating appointment and admission related information to patients and carers; management of trial specific regulatory documentation, such as delegation and training logs, creation of trial specific work sheets, upkeep and filing of documentation in investigator site files in line with the unit's standard operating procedures; acting as a central point of communication, disseminating to the nurses and other healthcare professionals as appropriate.

The post is based in the Early Phase Clinical Trial Unit, Churchill Hospital, Oxford, OX3 7LE and is offered on a full-time basis, fixed term for two years in the first instance.

You will be required to apply for and obtain an NHS Honorary Contract to undertake this role.

About you

You will be educated to GCSE level or equivalent and have advanced Office and IT skills for document management, information processing and communication. You will be a good team player but equally capable of working well on your own initiative, together with sound communication (written and verbal English) skills. You will be organised and methodical, able to prioritise and work well under pressure, with a positive approach. You will have the ability to exercise discretion and handle confidential information appropriately, applying accuracy and attention to detail in all aspects of your work. Experience of working in a regulatory environment would be advantageous.
