About us

The Clinical Trials Office is a department which exists to serve the research agenda of King’s Health Partners by providing a single interface for those wishing to conduct clinical trials within the Partner Organisations.  If you have a background in research within Higher Education, currently work in NHS R&D or Clinical Trials Administration in the Pharmaceutical or Allied Health Care and would like to work in a dedicated team with opportunity for career progression, we would like to hear from you.

About the role

The role is part of a busy team of Clinical Trials Agreements Associates providing an efficient and effective contractual service for investigators, companies and contract research organisations that are seeking to conduct commercial clinical trials within the Partner Organisations.  Members of the team work closely with our research teams and clients to cost projects and negotiate contracts. Candidates will ideally have experience in costing and negotiating project budgets, as well as standard contracts in the Academic or NHS sector, or in the pharmaceutical and allied health industries.  An understanding of the legal, regulatory and statutory governance of clinical trials, or other regulated environments, will be an advantage.

Most importantly, we seek candidates who are able to think analytically, are confident and persuasive communicators with excellent written English, and who can successfully manage a diverse and very busy workload largely autonomously.

This is a full-time post (35 hours per week), and you will be offered an indefinite contract.

  6. Demonstrably high levels of accuracy and attention to detail.
  7. Practical problem-solving skills and the ability to think analytically.
  8. Strong computer skills (proficient with MS word, Excel and web-based applications).
