Senior / Lead Clinical Research Associate - Specialist Global CRO - Belgium

Company: Barrington James Clinical
Reference: ACSCRABE191017
Closing Date: 19 Nov 17
Type: Permanent
Salary (£): Competitive

Job Summary:

Alex Coppen


?Role: Senior Clinical Research Associate

Location: Belgium

Company: Small, global CRO (rare/complex disease)

Salary: Competitive

Do you want to be involved in more than monitoring? Are you working on a huge amount of studies at once, traveling too much and looking to focus on the quality of your work?

To be considered for this role:

  • Degree in life sciences.
  • 4 or more years monitoring in clinical research experience: preferably in a CRO
  • IMP trial experience
  • Oncology experience is highly recommended - Other TA experience should ideally encompass complex indications and/or rare disease and/or trials in ICU settings
  • Experience in EC and regulatory submissions would be a bonus
  • Located within the Brussels region
  • Ability to work home based

I have recently met with the Head of Clinical Operations for a small-medium sized, specialist, global CRO who are looking to expand across Europe. The company specialises in working with small-medium Biotechs on rare, complex studies that have huge potential to change people’s lives, often indications that have a high unmet medical need.


The company offers a both a professional and family environment where everyone knows each other and there are short lines of communication within the company. People are not numbers on a spreadsheet. 


You will be able to develop a wide range of skills as you will not only be monitoring, but will be involved in SSU activities such as EC submissions and contract negotiations. They are conscious that their CRAs are involved in more than monitoring, so they do not ask them to monitor 12 to 15 times per month. The more Senior CRAs also get the chance to evolve as Lead CRAs on some studies in order to develop new management skills.


The role will include:

  • Administration and full investigator site responsibility for clinical studies according to Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), ICH-GCP and local regulations
  • Acts as mentor for less experienced CRAs
  • Senior CRA - May act as lead CRA assisting a Project Manager (PM) and may act as lead CRA or as a PM of national studies
  • Ensures clinical trials are monitored such that subjects' rights, safety and wellbeing are protected and that the clinical trial data are reliable
  • Assists the PMs in the preparation and review of protocols and informed consent forms
  • Negotiates investigator budgets and assists with the execution of site contracts with support from the legal department
  • EC and regulatory submissions


If you are looking for a company that invests in its people, enables you to work within rare indications and offers opportunities to grow and challenge yourself, this could be your next move.
