Clinical trials and Clinical research recruitment agencies

Biotechnology recruitment agencies will often be responsible for supplying top clinical staff for research and trials vacancies. Pharmaceutical companies are the main employers of clinical professionals and recruiters will commonly expected to provide candidates for permanent or contract positions.

The role of clinical trials staff is to test the effectiveness of drugs before allowing them to market. Day to day duties will vary but candidates can expect to be involved with every step of the trial process from inception through to closing reports. This will include selecting / setting up trial sites, identifying relevant investigators, liaising with doctors and consulting with ethics committees.

Clinical trials or research jobs will require candidates to have gained a degree; preferably within medical or life sciences. Administration roles can afford candidates the opportunity to enter the field without a high level qualification, however these are limited. Experience within a nursing, pharmacy or medical sales role is seen as an advantage for aspiring candidates but a university degree is still expected in order to progress beyond an entry level position. Clinical workers will also be required to train in Good Clinical Practice (GCP).

Salaries for trials / research staff typically begin at £20K, however clinical trials graduate jobs can command earnings of £30K. Experience and career progression can see salaries rise to £40K, with top senior professionals potentially accruing £60K+. The majority of the sector work a Monday to Friday week, however evening or part time hours are common.
