Are you an enthusiastic, driven individual with proven experience delivering complex programmes with multiple stakeholders? 

The UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) Registered Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) Network is a national network of registered clinical trials units whose aim is to provide members with information, guidance and representation and to act as a strong voice in order to successfully support member activities in their delivery of high quality, efficient, effective and sustainable clinical trials research in the UK. Membership of the Network is reviewed by an international panel on a regular basis. The Network is now over 10 years old; this is an exciting opportunity, for the right person, to contribute to the development and delivery of the Network strategy for the next 10 years.

You will lead the development, management and delivery of the UKCRC Registered CTU Network strategic programme of work, which will include the implementation of robust governance processes for all aspects of Network operation and administration.  You will coordinate the International UKCRC CTU Registration Process and be responsible for promoting the Network nationally and internationally.
