An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 5 clinical research nurse to join our multidisciplinary team within the NIHR Imperial Clinical Research Facility. The unit is a NHS research facility at Hammersmith Hospital in west London. It is located at the heart of one of the UK’s most research-intensive universities, Imperial College. It provides a dedicated, well-equipped and professional environment that enables medical staff and scientists to work together to investigate disease and trial the latest scientific ideas for improving diagnosis and treatment. The CRF provides comfortable clinical accommodation for healthy volunteers and patients participating in studies requiring long-term 24h in-house monitoring as well as facilities for day case visits. It is equipped to cater for complex studies from across the range of medical disciplines and provides close proximity space for clinical research fellows, nurses and allied healthcare professionals

We are looking for a motivated, skilful and knowledgeable nurse who works well as part of a team. Knowledge of research or chemotherapy is favourable. Clinical skills such as phlebotomy and cannulation are desirable.

The unit specialises in commercial and academic early phase clinical studies in various disease areas including oncology, haematology, neurology and metabolic medicine as well as healthy volunteers’ trials. We host complex and challenging studies and we expect the post holder to adapt to the required flexibility of our portfolio. 

Working with chemotherapy and genetically modified organisms form part of the activities you may be involved in. You will always be provided with the required training and support to deliver the required care. Working hours are also flexible as the unit operates days and nights with the occasional weekend.
