    Trial Manager at Peninsula Clinical Trials Unit

    We now have a vacancy for Trial Manager to join the successful trial management team within the PenCTU. This is an exciting opportunity for someone with substantial clinical trials management experience to join a CTU that has retained full registration status from the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) since 2007.  PenCTU has a growing portfolio of studies funded by the NIHR and other major non-commercial research funding bodies.

    We are looking for a suitably experienced person, with energy and enthusiasm to grasp new opportunities and help shape the future of the PenCTU within a committed team.  You will work closely with a team of trial managers, data managers, programmers, statisticians, other methodologists and clinicians to develop and manage a portfolio of clinical studies on behalf of investigators across the South West peninsula and further afield.

    You must have a good knowledge of all stages in the life cycle of clinical trials with substantial recent experience in the central management of randomised controlled trials, preferably within an academic environment.  Experience of managing trials of investigational medicinal products and/or trials of complex interventions would be particularly beneficial.  A detailed knowledge of NHS research governance and the regulatory requirements governing the conduct of clinical trials in the UK is essential, along with a good understanding of NHS research infrastructure and funding.

    You should be educated to degree level, preferably with evidence of post-graduate study. You will write fluently, have excellent oral communication skills, be highly organised, demonstrate meticulous attention to detail and be able to prioritise his/her workload.  Proficiency in the use of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint is essential.

    We are open to applications for full or part-time hours and can support various models of remote working.  At the current time, due to the COVID19 pandemic all staff are working remotely. Once things return to ‘normal’ we are able to support informal working from home arrangements.

    Since the role includes monitoring of investigator sites, mobility to travel is essential. A current full driving licence and willingness to travel is desirable as you will be required to travel to remote areas not easily accessible by public transport.

    For an informal discussion to find out more about the role then please contact Sarah Campbell: by email –

    Interviews are likely to take place week commencing 8 March 2021 and you will be notified if you have been shortlisted or not.

    This is a full-time position working 37 hours per week on a fixed-term basis for 12 months due to business demand.

    This position is based at the Plymouth Science Park, on the Northern Campus.

    Flexible working options including job share will be considered.

    A successful external candidate for this position would be employed by the University of Plymouth Services Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Plymouth. Employees of the University of Plymouth Services Limited work alongside the University of Plymouth colleagues in delivery of Plymouth’s strategic vision, and will adopt the University of Plymouth’s HR policies and procedures in full unless otherwise stated.

    We offer a competitive salary package and a generous pension and holiday scheme. We also offer a range of other benefits, including ongoing development opportunities.

    The University of Plymouth is committed to equality of opportunity, promoting a diverse and inclusive culture, demonstrated through our commitment to the gender equality Athena SWAN Charter and as a Stonewall diversity champion. All applications will be judged solely on merit, however, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented in the workforce, for example black and minority ethnic groups.

    The University of Plymouth holds a TEF (Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework) Silver by the Office for Students.

    The Faculty of Health holds a Silver Athena Swan Award and the University holds a Bronze Athena SWAN Award which recognises commitment to advancing women’s careers in STEMM academia.
