Clinical Research Associate (CRA II / SCRA) - North West & Midlands

Company: DOCS Global
Location: North West or Midlands
Reference: AS-012589
Closing Date: 16 Dec 16
Type: Full Time
Salary (£): 30,000 - 40,000
Benefits: £5760 Car Allowance + Private Healthcare + Pension + Life Assurance + 23 Days Annual Leave (rising to 27 days)

Job Summary:

We have a new opening for an experienced Clinical Research Associate (CRA II or SCRA) to join DOCS and be fully insourced with a pharmaceutical partner. This is a regional monitoring role so if you are located in the North West or Midlands you should read on!


DOCS is the Functional Resourcing Division of ICON Plc. This means that when someone joins the DOCS Team rather than working in a CRO environment you will be directly and exclusively insourced with one of our many pharmaceutical / medical device partners working on their SOPs, IT Systems, Projects and sometimes in their offices.

We are now going through a period of growth and as such have a new opening for a CRA to be home-based in the North West or Midlands with one such partner, a large global pharmaceutical company.

You might ask yourself, why should I consider this role so let me outline some points that might help you make this decision:

  • On average you will receive between 4-5 protocols but the sites will all be in your area as this is a regional role as we want to limit travel where possible.
  • There is travel expected but because some or all of these trials will be utilising Risk Based Monitoring then this should be less than usually expected.
  • The new CRA roles are with a sponsor that has a large Clinical Operations Division covering Phase I – IV and all therapeutic areas in the pipeline. So, you can get the opportunity to work on a Phase I study or change from Oncology to Cardiovascular studies as an example.
  • Promotional Opportunities – We have seen a number of promotions from SCRA to Project Manager in 2016. This is not always possible with one sponsor so having prior notice and first preference on upcoming roles across a number of sponsors gives multiple routes to secure that next step.
  • Our roles are generally home-based with the option of hot desking in either our clients offices when required. DOCS will provide financial support for those setting up the home office along with monthly allowances.
  • Of course we want people to stay and build their long term career with DOCS however we also understand that sometimes you find a company that you feel at home in and want to stay long term so we will support our employees should they apply for a role as a headcount  at their sponsor were feasible.

What experience do you need?
We are keen to encourage applications from those with montoring experience but ss this is a home based role we would require someone to have 2+ years on this occassion. Ideally this will be with a CRO or Pharma company. You'll also need to be living in the Midlands or North West as we don't want you travelling all over the country.
