We are actively promoting flexible working options, helping you to manage a work / life balance”.

We currently have an exciting opportunity for a nurse to join our multi-disciplinary clinical research team based within Research Space, Leicester Royal Infirmary.

We are looking for a resourceful, organised and flexible team player with an eye for detail who takes pride in their work. You will be an experienced practitioner with the potential to work autonomously when required.

You will often be the first point of contact with the research team, so it is vital that you are both welcoming and professional in your approach to all. As a key member of the team, we need you to be proactive and forward-thinking. You will be expected to work on a portfolio of clinical trials, so an ability to prioritise and deal with issues as they arise is essential. You must be able to demonstrate excellent written and verbal communication skills. A working knowledge of Microsoft Office software packages and experience of UHL IT systems would also be an advantage.

Ideally you will have previous clinical research experience, with a solid understanding of ICH-GCP and clinical trial delivery within the NHS. However, we will consider applications from candidates with relevant clinical experience who demonstrate enthusiasm and commitment to develop their knowledge and skills in this specialist area. The successful candidate will benefit from an individualised orientation programme and access to relevant training and education to support their professional development.

Working hours are usually Monday to Friday, however flexibility will be required on an infrequent basis to cover out of hours study activity.

If you think you have the attributes that we are looking for and share our vision to find better ways to detect, diagnose and treat clinical conditions across a variety of specialist areas, then come and join our team.
