Please note this is a PERMANENT contract

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced registered nurse to join a team of research nurses who provide a clinical studies service for the Biomedical Research Unit and the Nottingham Digestive Disease Centre.

Following the successful announcement of the National Institute of Health Research Biomedical Research Centre (NIHR BRC) designation and funding in 2016, the Nottingham Digestive Diseases department (previously known as NDD BRU) now forms part of a wider collaboration with departments from across the Trust and the University of Nottingham.

As part of our expansion we are seeking to recruit a Band 6 Research Nurse with an interest in hepatology and gastroenterology nursing. The candidate will join the existing GI Liver clinical research team based in the Biomedical Research Centre at the Queens Medical Centre Campus. The post may involve travelling to different hospital sites and occasional foreign travel may be required.

The post holder will play a key role in the provision of care and management of patients participating in clinical studies. We are looking for a motivated, skilful and knowledgeable nurse who will work well as part of a team and demonstrate initiative. Knowledge of clinical research, project management and endoscopy experience is favourable. Strong background of clinical skills (administration of intravenous drugs, venepuncture, and cannulation) is essential.

Responsibilities of the post include the coordination and day to day management of an agreed portfolio of clinical trials. Central to this role is the responsibility of managing trial activity safely within the care pathways for patients participating.

You will work collaboratively with the other members of the study teams and with the wider multi-disciplinary research community. You will be required to have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, be self-driven and motivated, and have the ability to work independently.

As an employee of the Biomedical Research Centre you will be a member of an organisation that endeavours to provide the highest quality of service to our patients. You will be an ambassador of the organisation and, as such, will be required to ensure that high standards are maintained at all times.
