Please note: This position could be based at our Cambridge site or Oxford site

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is a Special Health Authority and an integral part of the NHS. In addition to providing blood components and donated organs to the NHS, NHSBT, in collaboration with the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford and Bristol, conducts world-class research in the fields of transfusion medicine, organ donation, tissues and stem cells.

The NHSBT Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) holds full registration with the UKCRC, and supports the translation of this laboratory research into clinical practice, as well as perform studies that will optimise the use of blood components, or improve the quality of organs for donation. We conduct a range of different studies from large randomised controlled trials to small first in human studies. Our staff are located in NHSBT offices in Bristol, Cambridge and Oxford. Our trials are funded from a variety of sources, including the NHSBT R&D Committee and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funding streams.


An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and highly motivated full-time clinical trial co-ordinator to join the friendly CTU team in Cambridge or Oxford to support our portfolio of trials. This is a 2-year fixed term post, and the post-holder will be expected to provide trial co-ordination and site monitoring support working alongside the Trial Manager of one or more trials.

You will have a first degree in a health related subject, and some years’ experience of co-ordinating clinical trials in the public sector. Knowledge of transfusion medicine would be advantageous, as would a post-graduate qualification.


The successful candidate will have excellent communication, organisational and interpersonal skills as well as knowledge of ICH-GCP and clinical trials legislation, governance and regulations. Commensurate with NHSBT status as a national organisation, candidates must also be able to travel for internal meetings on occasion, with notice, in addition to travel to investigative sites.

This is a fixed term position for 2 years, it is a full time post working 37.5 hours per week and the successful applicant could be based either in the Cambridge OR Oxford area.

This is currently a ‘hybrid’ working job role, which would mean that we would expect you to come into the office 2-3 days a week with the flexibility to work remotely for the remainder of the week. These arrangements can be discussed at interview.
