We are delighted to announce that we have been rated as a “Good” organisation by CQC and our Adults Services were rated ‘Outstanding’ for caring.

Are you looking for a new challenge? Are you motivated, resourceful, curious? Are you looking for an opportunity to join a small friendly team? We are looking for a Clinical Research Practitioner/Research Nurse, experienced in the delivery of clinical research studies to join us in Leeds. This role offers the right candidate a fantastic opportunity to support those living in Leeds to participate in innovative important research studies.

In this role the successful candidate will work in a generic research role with health and care teams from communities across Leeds. The initial focus of the post will be in sustaining and developing the palliative care research portfolio delivered in collaboration with the Academic Unit of Palliative care at the University of Leeds and St Gemma's Hospice. However a significant aspect of the role will include working more widely across community settings. The individual working in this role will have a high level of autonomy and need to liaise closely with principle investigators.


We seek an individual with significant experience of clinical research delivery. Ideally this should include both delivery of clinical trials (including CTiMPS) as well as other types or research such as survey and interview based studies. The successful candidate will be well versed in governance requirements and be up to date with GCP training. Knowledge of "EDGE" clinical data base would be helpful.

Ideally the successful candidate will also have experience of working in community settings and/or with patients receiving palliative care.

Whilst the post is advertised as being full time we are very happy to explore flexible working, as well as part time or job share options if this might better suit suitable candidates. We are very keen to hear from anyone who has relevant experience, enthusiasm and interest.

The post currently involves some home working due to Covid 19 restrictions.

If you are successful in being offered a position which involves working with patients, you will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The level of check required is dependent upon the position that you have applied for. The Trust will administer the DBS check on your behalf and will recover the cost from your salary. There will be no charge if you are enrolled in the DBS Update Service.
