Research Delivery Digital Transformation Facilitator

Are you keen to work in a fast paced, dynamic and innovative environment? Do you have experience of working in or managing clinical trials? Do you have strong communication skills and are able to interact with a range of stakeholders across multiple organisations?

We are looking for an individual who is passionate about developing and delivering digital transformation to improve research delivery efficiency. You will report directly to the Research Delivery Digital Lead and sit within the Research Operations function of the Research Delivery Directorate. This is a small team that works closely together and collaborates with teams across the NIHR Clinical Research Network. This team is responsible for the ongoing development and maintenance of the NIHR CRN's Central Portfolio Management System and works closely with the NIHR Digital Office on projects designed to streamline the research landscape across the UK.

This role will support both the changes to the CRN's Central Portfolio Management System and the business change activities required to support the implementation of new functionality and services.

At the University of Leeds, we are committed to providing a culture of inclusion, respect and equality of opportunity that attracts, supports, and retains the best students and staff from all backgrounds and from across the world. Whatever role we recruit for we are always striving to increase the diversity of our community, which each individual helps enrich and cultivate. We particularly encourage applications from, but not limited to Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people; people who identify as LGBT+; and people with disabilities.

We have identified that people with disabilities and Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people are currently underrepresented in this role and particularly welcome applications. Candidates will always be selected based on merit and ability.
