Type: Full Time
Basis of Employment: Contract
Grade/Salary: Standard Grade 5
Closing Date: 1 July 2022

We have an exciting opportunity for two Clinical Trial Administrators (CTAs) 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 of cancer trials.

OCTO is based within the Department of Oncology, developing and running academic clinical trials and studies to the highest standards and is proactive in improving clinical trial procedures. Our trials are concerned with the practical application of high-quality clinical research into innovative and effective cancer therapies, early detection and prevention strategies. CTAs will usually work on 1-3 trials, offering the opportunity to be involved in and learn about different areas of clinical trial management.

You will be responsible for a range of activities required in the day-to-day running of trials, such as assisting with the documentation and preparation of study site set-up; checking on trial progress and supplies with participating sites; supporting the Trial Manager in the preparation and submission of amendment packages for ethics and regulatory bodies; handling routine trial queries and clinical queries; checking trial data for missing or inconsistent information and following up with sites where necessary; working alongside laboratory staff and the Trial Manager to monitor samples collected as part of trials; design and organise promotional material for OCTO studies; assisting with audit and monitoring visits.

The posts are based in the Oncology Clinical Trials Office (OCTO), Level 2, Cancer & Haematology Centre, Churchill Hospital, Oxford, OX3 7LE, and are offered on a fixed-term contract for 12 months in the first instance.

The posts are offered full-time, although part-time hours (minimum 0.8 FTE worked over four days) will be considered. Please clearly state your preference in your application.

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).
