Job Details

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.

Many of our recruitment programmes use V alue Based Interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

Senior Clinical Trials Assistant - Band 3 - Permanent

Hello! My name is Elliott Dempsey and I am one of the Specialist Senior Clinical Trial Technicians for the Clinical Trials team in Oxford.

As a Senior Technician I am privileged to manage and support our fantastic technical team of Technicians, Assistants and Apprentices as we provide support services to our clinical trial research teams on all of our trust sites throughout Oxfordshire. As a Senior Clinical Trials Assistant in our team, you will have an extremely varied role - you will be involved in maintaining the supply chain of Clinical Trial medications to research nurses who deliver treatment to patients, maintaining financial records, completing drug accountability activities, closing down and archiving of completed studies, as well as facilitating meetings from sponsors. A successful candidate should possess NVQ Level 2 in Pharmacy Service Skills, equivalent qualification or related degree (i.e. pharmaceutical or science degree). Applicants without these qualifications will still be considered. However, they will be required to undertake the provided relevant level 2 qualification in Pharmacy Services and offered a lower band until this qualification is achieved.

I am very keen to hear from you if you have previously worked in a pharmacy environment and/or have some exposure to clinical trials as we have some great opportunities for you to progress your career.

If you are interested in an informal discussion about the Pharmacy Assistant role offered within our team then I would be very pleased to chat with you about this. You are more than welcome to call on the numbers below or even better, we can make an appointment for me to show you around and answer your questions. Looking forward to hearing from you.
