Clinical Research Scientist Placement

We are looking for empathetic, enthusiastic applicants who wants to be part of our team working within multiple NHS sites, helping to run the NHS clinics.

You will be trained as a Clinical Researcher by completing our formal Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training programme and NHS training. This will give you 21 NHS issued training certificates. After completing the practical training, you can then start independently engaging NHS patients by helping to run NHS health clinics and recruitment into our clinical study (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03987633). There is a requirement that daily activity tables are electronically sent to head-office and you attend monthly company team meetings.

We offer two unpaid placement opportunities:

  • Summer placement (between June – September 2022). This role is open for any interested applicants.
  • 12-month Undergraduate placement (starting summer 2022). This role is ONLY open for undergraduate students.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Working within the NHS Primary Care setting by helping to run NHS health clinics and our own clinical research study.
  • Responsibility working with the patients by completing a health check – formal training will be provided by a supervisor.
  • The job has considerable responsibility as you will have to demonstrate consideration to patients, professionalism, courtesy and diplomacy at all times.
  • Moreover, given that you will be privy to patients private information you will be required to keep all patient and company information private and confidential and therefore will be bound by confidentiality agreements.

Given that you will be working with NHS patients that include vulnerable groups such as the elderly and children, all offers of employment are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check along with details of two referees where one would be an academic referee.

Skills that the young person will develop:

  • You will have gained better interpersonal skills working as a Clinical Research Scientist, which presents itself with  opportunities to work in different roles in this field of clinical research, pharmaceutical industries or indeed the NHS.
  • You may also develop key transferrable skills such as accurate computer skills (e.g. Excel), effectively communicating with a broad range of people by following a structured learning and development experience. This will equip you with valuable clinical (patient engagement) experience.
