An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 clinical chemotherapy 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 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

Our portfolio of phase I and phase IIa oncology studies is increasing and we are therefore looking for a motivated, skilful and knowledgeable chemo trained nurse, who works well as part of a team. Knowledge of clinical research is favourable but not essential. Strong background of clinical skills (administration of intravenous drugs, phlebotomy and cannulation) is essential.

The unit specialises in commercial and academic early phase clinical studies in various disease areas including haematology, neurology, oncology 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.

This post is a maternity cover for 12 months. For the suitable candidate there are strong possibilities of being offered a substantive contract at the end of the maternity cover. Although the post holder would primarily work on oncology studies using Aria, when there is no activity on such studies, you would be expected to work on other trials with patients or healthy volunteers in the ICRF. Working with genetically modified organisms form part of the activities you may be involved in. You will always be provided with training and support to deliver the required care. Working hours are primarily Monday to Friday 8.00-16.00 but there are also late shifts and night shifts as part of the roster.
