Research Administrators – Job advert

UCLH is currently seeking motivated and enthusiastic individuals to join its Cancer Clinical Trials Unit as Research Administrators. The role is integral to the provision of a large scale early detection cancer study that will be delivered in partnership with our academic partner, UCL and a US based healthcare company.

The early diagnosis of cancer is a key priority for UCLH. The aim of the study is to detect cancer early when it can be treated, in order to improve the survival and treatment opportunities for patients. The Research Administrator is an important role to the delivery of the study and requires excellent administration and organisational skills.

The role requires flexibility to support the delivery of the study and will require liaising with GP practice staff as well as other agencies involved in the study to ensure effective administration of the study. The successful applicants will have experience of working in a fast paced environment. They will have a can-do attitude with great problem solving skills. Experience of working in clinical trials and within an NHS environment would be an advantage.

The role will require significant travel across north, central, east and south London to GP practices. The position is offered fixed term until 15th July 2022 with possibility of an extension.
