Joining a well-established yet expanding team fully outsourced to one of our global pharmaceutical clients, the Senior Clinical Project Manager ensures overall successful execution of phase 1-4 clinical trials in Oncology, in accordance with applicable Standard Operating Procedures, agreed timelines, budgetary and regulatory requirements, on either a global or regional scale.


The Senior Clinical Project Manager serves as the leader for the Study Management Team, with ultimate responsibility for the set-up, planning and coordination of clinical trials through to study closure. Managing and tracking key study metrics to ensure adherence to project milestones, along with communicating with other departments, will form a key part of this role.


Other fundamental tasks include driving activity to ensure that enrolment commitments are met, whilst also checking that relevant documentation is duly updated, resolving problems, proactively managing risk and (where necessary) timely escalating issues.
