Are you qualified research nurse enthusiastic about delivering high quality research? Do you want to help improve patient care? Do you want to be involved in research that aims to improve the quality of life of cancer patients? 

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated research nurse to join the CANAssess research team. CANAssess (CAncer Patients’ Needs ASSESSment in Primary Care) is a cluster randomised controlled trial assessing the effects of a needs management tool in the primary care setting. The trial is led by the University of Hull, and funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research. The trial has regional recruitment hubs in Leeds, Sheffield, Sunderland and Hull.  

The role will involve management of the participants’ journey throughout the life of the trial, including but not limited to, consent, recruitment, data collection and follow-up. The successful applicant will act as the main point of contact for all participants and their carers registered at the GP surgeries in their regional hub.

The work will be carried out under the supervision of the local investigator, Professor Robbie Foy, Professor of Primary Care. The study is funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research.  

You will be a registered nurse with an interest in primary care research. You will have demonstrated your ability to work independently and efficiently in a research context, and will have excellent organisational skills with a proven ability to prioritise tasks and good attention to detail.
