We are seeking a dynamic individual to act as a Trial Manager for the PURSUIT Trial (Proper Understanding of Recurrent Stress Urinary Incontinence Treatment in Women): This post offers an excellent opportunity for an experienced research leader to join a multidisciplinary team within the University of Bristol, and collaborators at participating NHS hospitals.
PURSUIT is an NIHR-HTA funded randomised controlled trial of endoscopic and surgical treatment to explore whether surgical or endoscopic interventions improve continence. 250 women will be recruited from 20 NHS urology and urogynaecology referral units across the UK.
Based within the Bristol Randomised Trials Collaboration (BRTC), a UKCRC-registered trials unit, you will be accountable for ensuring that the trial is conducted to the highest possible standards and complies with all regulatory requirements and good clinical practice under the guidance of the senior BRTC trial manager. Your main task is to lead all aspects of a properly conducted trial and to liaise with the PIs, collaborators, trial management committees and centre staff to oversee set up, and to ensure recruitment and follow-up targets are achieved within the proposed time-frame.
You will have substantial experience of successfully co-ordinating trials (preferably multicentre) or the equivalent research management experience and the proven ability to motivate a team. Good communication skills are required as the applicant will be working within a secondary care setting, the University, liaising with research staff, clinicians and collaborating academics. In addition, you will prepare update reports for the management team and funders, and be expected to play a role in disseminating findings, presenting at conferences and drafting publications.
This post provides the opportunity for a degree of autonomy and freedom and to act independently within organisational policies. You will require excellent interpersonal and negotiating skills, must be able to demonstrate an ability to organise and motivate others, and be willing to take a high level of responsibility.
