BAND 5 
RESEARCH PRACTITIONER
FULL TIME (37.5 HOURS PER WEEK)
FIXED TERM CONTRACT FOR 12 MONHTS

Are you dynamic, patient-centred, self-motivated and looking for a new and exciting challenge? Why not consider joining the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR)Clinical Research Network (CRN) Greater Manchester’s Core Team to support local NHS Trust teams in delivering NHS research to patients across the region.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated research practitioner with clinical/research experience who is capable of contributing to the support and development of research within the CRN Greater Manchester.

The role is interesting, variable and totally different from many
other research practitioner roles, in that whilst the post is based at Manchester University Hospitals NHS Trust (Oxford Road campus), you will be assigned to work with any of the research teams across our network (including Acute, secondary and primary care/community
services), depending on where support is most needed. You must,
therefore, be willing and able to travel between sites.

You will take a proactive approach to supporting clinical research
studies.
You will be a point of contact for study principal investigators, sponsors and patients and so effective communication and team working skills are essential. You will be involved in ensuring that research undertaken safeguards the well-being of patients and is undertaken within Good Clinical Practice Guidelines.

Shortlisting will be carried out according to the person specification, so please construct your personal statement accordingly when applying.

Comprehensive induction, orientation and training will be provided for successful candidates. We will also ensure that you have tailored, individual personal development plans with support for further training.
