Type: Part Time
Salary (£): 30,000 - 40,000

Job Summary:

This is a home based full time CRA position with a top ten pharmaceutical company. We are now finding that freelance CRA positions with pharmaceutical companies are on a steep decline and as a result this position will be on a PAYE employed basis. You would be employed permanently by CHILTERN on PAYE salary and benefits, and seconded to the pharmaceutical company.


We are looking for a DYNAMIC CRA – someone who enjoys the thrill of building relationships with sites, is interested in career development and appreciates the benefits of being “employed” rather than freelance for example, career development opportunities hand in hand with the Client and with Chiltern.

You will receive full support in terms of line management/pastoral care, full administrative support, and access to both soft skills and technical advancement courses. We need someone who will commit and build a strong relationship within our strategic partnership.

Working within Cardiovascular and Metabolic and based in the Basingstoke/Guildford area or the greater Surrey/Hampshire borders location, this is a rolling and renewable contract starting as a 12 months secondment to our client.

You would typically be monitoring around 3 days/week, sometimes more sometimes less. Sites are all very regional so travel distance is minimal but there will be multiple protocols.

IMPORTANTLY - We are looking for someone who has at least 12 months INDEPENDENT monitoring experience at hospital sites in the UK. You may have been doing this within an academic setting and/or within an NHS trust- that is fine, as long as you have the independent monitoring skills to include site selection, initiation, monitoring and close out.



Contribute to the nomination of new sites for clinical trials; analyse capability and make recommendation for trial inclusion.
Assume ambassadorial role to facilitate communication between sites and Operations to increase value proposition to investigators Facilitate preparation and collection of site level documents during all phases of the trial; resolve problems as required.
Execute site initiation and training.
Implement total site management including monitoring visits, regulatory assessment, drug supply management and resolution of site problems to ensure compliance.
Identify problems at sites; resolve issues and escalate as appropriate.
Collaborate with the clinical study manager (CSM) to ensure recruitment and execute contingency plans, as needed.
Complete preparation and generation of study monitoring reports.
Review and manage data remotely and at site; resolve technical and content issues on a continuous basis in order to achieve timely database lock targets.
