The 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 of four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton 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 values-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 significance difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

An exciting opportunity exists for a Research Manager to make a real difference to increasing commercial research activity across primary care settings in the Thames Valley.

The post holder will lead and manage the set up and running of the commercial federation of GP surgeries within CRN: Thames Valley and South Midlands.

The primary aim of the federation is to attract and deliver more commercial research (clinical trials and observational studies) from the federated surgeries across the Thames Valley and South Midlands region.

The post holder will need to be experienced in the set up and/or delivery of commercial clinical research in order to manage and lead the federation to deliver quality research and become the “go to” location for commercial research delivery in primary care settings.

The role will involve promotion to and engagement with the life sciences industry to bring research to the federation. This support role will work with staff in individual surgeries to ensure they are able to deliver research of the highest quality within required timeframes.

This post would suit someone with an excellent understanding of the requirements of commercial research and the ability to work collaboratively and persuasively with a wide range of stakeholders.

This post could be filled on a secondment basis for an existing employee of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
