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.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced, dynamic and motivated, highly specialist pharmacist to lead the clinical trials service at Guys and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

The post holder will support leadership, strategy and governance around the pharmacy directorate’s clinical trial arrangements, in addition to providing operational support for adult, non-cancer clinical trials.

The Trust has a proud and growing reputation as a centre of research excellence. Guys and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust currently supports over 350 active clinical trials, covering a wide range of specialist areas for non-commercial and commercial research. The Trust has recently seen an increase in Phase I/first-in-human studies (as a direct result of the adult MHRA Phase I accredited Clinical Research Facility unit on the Guys hospital site) as well as increasing numbers of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Product clinical trials. The successful applicant will contribute to the future planning and development of the pharmacy clinical trials service.

The post holder will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with the Kings Health Partners Clinical Trials Office, Trust Research and Development, the Biomedical Research Centre and other Trusts.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

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.
