Project Manager

Job Reference: 196-BRC1451

Guy's and St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust
Cross-site - Guy's & St. Thomas' Hospitals, London
£45,780 - £51,393 p.a inclusive of HCA

The commitment of our 17,100 staff is key to our success. We are one of the largest local employers and we aim to develop and support all our staff so they are able to deliver high quality, safe and efficient care. The 2018 NHS staff survey results show that we have one of the most engaged and motivated workforces in the NHS. We know this has a positive impact on the care provided to our patients.

Are you organised, collaborative, flexible, results focused and self-motivated? Why not consider joining the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Facility (CRF) at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

Clinical research is at the forefront of finding methods of diagnosing, preventing and treating COVID-19. This effort requires collaboration across campuses, infrastructure, teams and organisations. The Project Manager will be expected to work flexibly in order to lead these collaborations. The post holder may be asked to work remotely, in multiple locations, flexible hours or with a variety of teams. A flexible working policy including time in lieu and unsocial enhancements will be used to manage any unsocial hours worked.

The COVID-19 study portfolio is dynamic and includes rapid start up timelines and frequent amendments. The Project Manager will be expected to respond to these demands in a timely manner with great attention to detail.

While our organisation continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and supports Urgent Public Health (UPH) and COVID-19 studies the Project Manager will be required to work within and on behalf of the CRF. The post holder should anticipate the majority, if not all, of their portfolio of studies will be comprised of UPH and COVID-19 studies for the duration of our organisation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These studies may need to be delivered outside of the CRF.

Once COVID-19 research activity subsides, the post holder will work on a portfolio of clinical trials across a variety of therapeutic areas. Their portfolio will reflect the CRF’s strategic focus on experimental medicine and early phase clinical trials.

In this role you will take a proactive approach to supporting study teams and Principal Investigators while coordinating the visits, data and expenses of participating patients. You will have frequent contact with study sponsors and support all monitoring and auditing activities for your studies.

You will be a point of contact for study Principal Investigators, sponsors and participants and so effective communication and team working skills are essential. You will be involved in ensuring that the research undertaken safeguards the well-being of participants and is undertaken within Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Guidelines.

We are actively looking for candidates who can bring skills from their previous roles into the work they will do with our service. Candidates with experience in the following areas will be well placed to apply: clinical trials; monitoring; audit; inspection; data management; research governance; site file and project management.

Comprehensive induction, orientation and training will be provided for the successful candidate. We will also ensure that you have tailored, individual personal development plans with support for further training.

GSTT is a dynamic organisation and research activity is dependent on continued funding from external sources, therefore changes in the core duties and responsibilities of this role may be required from time to time to meet the requirements of funders or the needs of the CRF, BRC or the Research and Development department.

For full details of the roles and responsibilities of the post holder, please refer to the job description and person specification.

Closing Date: 6 September 2020 at Midnight

Interview Date: 17 September 2020

Applications from job seekers who require current Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the current Resident Labour Market Test which will be in place until the end of December 2020.
