The role

What if your Research Technician skills are what we need to make new medicines faster for patients?

As one of the largest Clinical Research Organizations in the world, we have recently brought to life four ultramodern Clinical Research Units in the UK and US… and the jewel in the crown is our facility at Drapers Yard Leeds. A brand new, world class, state-of-the-art 65,000 ft² clinic with 100 beds (and growing), fully dedicated to Phase I Clinical research (and 7 minutes walking from the train station!)

And this is where you come in because we are expanding and now seeking our next Clinical Research Technician.

  • This is a full-time, office based and permanent opportunity, working hours are 37 hours per week, five days over seven.
  • You will be required to work a mix of shifts, including weekend, twilight and night shifts (compensated with flexi time or shift enhancement.)

Who you are

  • You may bring some previous experience from a clinical setting or you may be taking your first step into a career in clinical research. Either way we want to hear from you.
  • Able to demonstrate working knowledge of Microsoft Office (Outlook, Word, Excel),

Previous experience in clinical trials or in a Clinical Pharmacology setting is ideal, but not a must (we´ve a robust training program to teach all you need). The important thing for us is you have worked and thrived in a professional environment that is:

  • Fast-paced: where no deviations from the study protocol are allowed, and not meeting a timeline for even few minutes will create a quality issue.
  • Changing priorities rapidly: where last minute deadlines are not uncommon, asking you to prioritize and adapt on the spot,
  • Based on teamwork for the clinical trial to run smoothly
  • Technology supported: we are moving towards a paper-free, electronic data collection & analysis environment.

Another big PLUS is if you bring experience working with Bedside Electronic Data Capture Systems.

On a normal day, you will

Learn. And grow. No two days will be the same because you will be exposed to a wide variety of Therapeutic Indications and study types (single and multiple ascending dose, first-in-human, food effect, drug to drug interactions, radiolabelled human AME etc.)

The core of your work will be supporting Phase 1 clinical trials being conducted in the clinic. All our teams at Drapers Yard live to answer one question: is the drug safe? Under this framework, you will work directly with clinical trials´ Healthy Volunteers and some Patient Populations to:

  • Accurately perform blood pressure, venipuncture, weights, pulse, respiratory rate, and temperature readings
  • Preparation and accurate recording of ECGs/Holters
  • Collection and processing of biological samples as specified in the protocol and ensures the proper distribution of those samples
  • Monitors meals to ensure dietary compliance by research participants
  • Assist in the preparation of rooms and medical equipment
  • Assist with screening procedures as needed
  • Maintain a clean, safe and efficient working and study environment
  • Accurately record all research data obtained or observed
  • Assist with QC of source documents and case report forms

There is one thing that only fortrea can offer

You will work with the clinical trial participants next door! Under the same roof, we have: the clinic, a state-of-the-art processing laboratory and a cutting-edge cGMP pharmacy. Supporting these functions we also have all elements of the full Clinical Pharmacology Service including data management, project management, medical and scientific, regulatory affairs, statistics and biometrics all of which provides you with a hands on opportunity to develop your career within Fortrea.

You will witness firsthand the dosing and safety research as they are being conducted in real time. When the drug you worked with gets approved, you know you´ll touch many patient´s lives around the world.
