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.

Paediatric research at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital is growing and developing. The paediatric clinical research team is expanding in size, scope and clinical facilities. This is an exciting time to join our team and make your mark on paediatric research and help shape its future.

We are now seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated Clinical Research Nurse to work in the Paediatric Allergy Department at St Thomas' Hospital.  The postholder will be joining a friendly multidisciplinary research team and will be responsible for the holistic nursing care of children and young people on existing clinical trials, including follow-on studies to the well-known LEAP and EAT studies. You will contribute to the assessment and management of care pathways for patients and carers participating in clinical studies. This will involve recruitment, education and monitoring children in studies, undertaking accurate data collection and data entry into case report forms. You will perform paediatric allergy research procedures, including participant assessment, informed consent, clinical examination, skin prick testing and oral food challenges.

You will be a qualified paediatric nurse with evidence of continuing professional development, ideally with some clinical research experience or interest in research. You should demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills and have the ability and initiative to work independently and manage a patient caseload across a variety of trials & studies. Knowledge or experience of children's allergies and allergy research is desirable. Opportunities for developing new research/clinical skills are available and actively encouraged.

The normal working hours for the post are Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, although the post holder may need to be flexible to accommodate patient visits and assessments outside of these hours when required.

Closing Date: 27 January 2019 at Midnight

Interviews will be held week commencing 4 February 2019
