A great opportunity to join the Surrey Clinical Trials Unit at the University of Surrey as a Clinical Trial Manager/Monitor on a part time, fixed-term basis.

Working on a Palliative Care Trial called CHELsea II, which is funded by NIHR HTA, this trial compares two different standards of care and the benefits and effects on end-of-life symptoms. The trial is the largest performed in this population and will involve 1600 patients across 80 sites within the UK. This is an exciting opportunity for an individual to travel and support palliative care teams in both hospital and hospice settings, as well as working and supporting the office-based team at the unit.   

Our benefits package includes generous annual leave entitlement, pension scheme, competitive salary and relocation assistance where applicable.
