At PRA Health Sciences, providing innovative solutions for our clients is what we do. From full service clinical development to the pioneering Embedded SolutionsTM model, PRA provides a broad spectrum of solutions that meet the demands of a diverse marketplace.

Responsibilities:

Joining a well-established yet expanding team fully outsourced to one of our global pharmaceutical clients, the Senior Clinical Trial Manager ensures overall successful execution of phase 1-4 clinical trials in Oncology, in accordance with applicable Standard Operating Procedures, agreed timelines, budgetary and regulatory requirements, on either a global or regional scale.

The Senior Clinical Trial Manager serves as the leader for the Study Management Team, with ultimate responsibility for the set-up, planning and coordination of clinical trials through to study closure. Managing and tracking key study metrics to ensure adherence to project milestones, along with communicating with other departments, will form a key part of this role.

Reporting to a Clinical Program Leader, you will ensure accurate budget management, including guaranteeing that third-party vendors are working to defined plans.

Other fundamental tasks include driving activity to ensure that enrolment commitments are met, whilst also checking that relevant documentation is duly updated, resolving problems, proactively managing risk and (where necessary) timely escalating issues. Clearly, the Senior Clinical Trial Manager will also work in accordance with applicable health authority regulations and internal standard operating procedures. Where necessary, participation in the preparation for and conduct of Health Authority inspections and internal audits will also feature in this role.

Working at the very heart of the clinical trial, you will deliver appropriate training to your study team on a trial-specific basis. Additionally, you will act as a key liaison with Quality Management in order to establish a high level of quality throughout the project lifecycle.

Qualifications:

The successful candidate will be an expert study manager, will have a proven record of successful execution of clinical trials on a global study. You will be able to work to key metrics and motivate a regionally-based study team throughout the project lifecycle. Your experience in the set-up and management of third-party vendors, as well as global study start up, will be self-evident. Familiarity with phase 1-4 studies would be highly advantageous. Demonstrable knowledge of effective project planning, strong financial acumen, along with the flexibility to manage a virtual team will ensure success within this position.
