Clinical Trials Assistant

Whether you’re beginning or continuing the early stages of your career, the Clinical Trial Assistant (CTA) is an ideal platform to gain hands-on experience and insight into the world of Clinical Trial Research. You’ll have training and development to plan and progress your career in the direction you choose, including direct opportunity to become a Clinical Research Associate (CRA) if you so wish.

Working within a smart, dedicated team, you will thrive under collaborative mentoring and receive structured quarterly reviews on performance, as well as promotion and bonus awards.

Award winning and innovative, we’ll give you access to cutting-edge in-house and mobile technology, allowing you to work on global projects on a variety of therapeutic areas in phases I-III. You’ll be building a smart and flexible career with no limits.

While projects vary, your typical responsibilities might include:

  • Assisting Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) and Regulatory and Start-Up (RSU) with accurately updating and maintaining clinical systems that track site compliance and performance within project timelines.
  • Assisting the clinical team in the preparation, handling, distribution, filing, and archiving of clinical documentation and reports according to the scope of work and standard operating procedures. Assist with periodic review of study files for completeness.
