Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
Band 6 Clinical Research Nurse
Renal Research Team
We are seeking to appoint a dynamic and highly motivated nurse to become part of our busy Renal Transplantation & Nephrology research team here at Guy’s Hospital, London.
Applicants must be a registered Adult Nurse with evidence of continuing professional development. Ideally you will have experience in clinical research with knowledge and experience in Renal nursing. However we will consider strong candidates who demonstrate a good awareness of clinical research and a real desire and willingness to learn in a fast paced environment. Candidates should demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills and have the ability and initiative to work independently and manage a patient caseload across a variety of clinical trials. An excellent understanding of undertaking clinical research and research governance processes is desirable although full training will be given.
You will be joining an enthusiastic, friendly, and motivated multidisciplinary team in a dynamic teaching hospital in central London, and you will be an essential member of the research team. The role will include screening and recruiting patients to studies, providing follow up care for patients enrolled in research, collecting and maintaining study records and clinical report forms, and liaising with Principal Investigators and clinical staff to ensure safe and high quality care for patients.
There are excellent opportunities for further education and leadership development within this role, with access to CPPD funding and revalidation support. We provide a comprehensive induction programme and ensure that all staff have tailored, individual personal development plans with support for further training. Opportunities for developing new research/clinical skills are available and actively encouraged. The normal working hours for the post are Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, although the post holder will need to be flexible to accommodate patient visits and assessments outside of these hours when required.
Please note that we will only accept online applications.
Interview date will be Wednesday 16th November 2016
