Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

St John’s Institute of Dermatology is part of King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre, which consists of King’s College London, and Guy’s and St Thomas’ (GSTT), King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts.

As the largest dermatology unit in the UK (>60,000 attendances per annum) with nationally and internationally recognised research and clinical expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of skin disease, St. John’s has delivered successfully on a large number of NIHR portfolio studies, playing a key role in driving and supporting continued recruitment to studies at multiple sites within the South London Clinical Research Network (CRN).

We are seeking, in conjunction with the King’s Clinical Trials Unit, a highly experienced individual with a proven track record in managing multi-centre UK-wide clinical trials.   The post holder will be responsible for the management of interventional clinical trials within the St John’s Institute of Dermatology, including the recently awarded NIHR/MRC funded multi-centre phase IIb trial evaluating the effectiveness of anakinra (an IL-1 receptor antagonist) in a rare form of psoriasis (APRICOT - Anakinra in pustular Psoriasis: Response In a Controlled Trial). Capable of working autonomously and possessing highly developed communication skills, the post holder will act as a visible contact for interventional clinical trials within the St John’s Institute of Dermatology for all external study partners, including research teams, the NIHR and Ethics and R&D departments.  You will lead on all aspects of the trials including, but not limited to: budget management, site initiation and monitoring, identifying, managing and resolving issues that may be barriers to recruitment, ensuring study targets are met, managing amendments to the MHRA, Ethics and R&D and ensuring revised documentation is implemented at all sites and adhered to throughout the study.

The successful applicant will be educated to post-graduate level and have a proven track record of working in an academic/NHS environment at a management level, and an ability to develop work-plans and recruitment targets and to deliver reports to senior management. In addition the successful applicant will possess an in depth knowledge of NHS Research Ethics and R&D approval processes, and experience of writing Research Ethics submissions and protocols for clinical research projects.

The post holder will be required to travel to participating centres around the UK to ensure the trial objectives are met.

Closing Date: 21 October 2018 at Midnight

Interview Date:  30 October 2018

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
