The NIHR Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs) are leaders in translating lab-based discoveries into new cutting-edge treatments, technologies and diagnostics.

The NIHR BRC based at Guy’s & St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College London is seeking an experienced Clinical Trials Administrator to provide nine months maternity cover supporting the team of Clinical Trials Managers (CTMs) in the management of the BRC’s clinical trials. The study portfolio consists of a number of first in man, phase 1 and phase 2 trials of advanced cellular, biological and small molecule therapies. Current trials are in cancer, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, transplantation and dermatology.

The post holder will work alongside the CTMs, Chief and Principal Investigators, Post-Doctoral Research Fellows, KHP CTO, Clinical Research Facilities, Statisticians, Database developers and collaborating clinicians and research nurses. The post holder will be required to work with the CTMs to provide administrative support in the submission for regulatory and ethical approval for the relevant studies.
They will ensure that the trial related documentation is correctly and confidentially filed, and provide support in tracking the status of patient recruitment as well as other milestones for each trial. They will also be responsible for the preparation of all trial files, the tracking of queries and resolving any more complex administrative issues that may arise.
The successful delivery of this important position within the BRC will require a basic knowledge of clinical research methodology and current issues in delivery of early phase clinical trials, strong organisational skills, prioritising and organising their work, and that of others.

The R&D Department at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTFT) is one of the focal points for innovative research in London through its nationally recognised research portfolio and research infrastructure. The broad ranging portfolio includes one of only five National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) comprehensive Biomedical Research Centres awarded in 2007-2012 in partnership with our academic partner King’s College London (KCL), one of only eleven NIHR Biomedical Research Centres receiving funding from 2012-2017 and one of twenty NIHR Biomedical Research Centres recently awarded funding from 2017-2022 (£64.4m).
