Clinical Trials Team

We have an exciting opportunity within the Clinical Trials Pharmacy Team. As a centre for research excellence, you will be part of a focused, energetic team that are committed to supporting research and development.

Clinical Trials Pharmacy Technician – Band 4

Do you have an interest in cutting edge research?  Would you like to work in a large multi-disciplinary team?

We are looking for a registered Pharmacy Technician, with excellent communication skills to support our friendly Clinical Trials Team in the day to day running of clinical trials.  The role is based across all sites and in a wide variety of clinical areas.  You will be working with many different multi-disciplinary teams to bring research to patients.  As part of a team, you will be given an opportunity to become a specialised technician for your own set of studies and thus work towards becoming a key contact for these.

The post will include some time in the aseptic unit, manufacturing IV doses, developing and maintaining competency. 

Clinical trial experience is not essential for this role as full training will be provided, but would be desirable.

Interviews will be held on 14th August 2019, although alternative dates will be considered in advance.

Please make sure that you read the job description and person specification attached below, and that your statement in support reflects this as your application will be judged against these criteria.


The majority of correspondence will be via the e-recruitment system; therefore you should check your emails regularly including junk mail folders in web-based email products.
