Covance is looking to hire an UNBLINDED CRA to monitor sites in the UK

This is a permanent position with Covance - home or office based (in Maidenhead)  - full time. National Travel involved.

You would be dedicated to one Sponsor (a top ten pharma company) 100% of the time - and your role would be as outlined below. You would be performing UNBLINDED monitoring responsibilities within the hospital setting in the UK. The role focuses on Hospital PHARMACY monitoring within the clinical trials setting.

We are looking for a CRAI or CRAII who has completed "monitoring training" or has some previous monitoring experience already, possibly in the NHS or academic setting. You would now be looking to embellish/broaden your monitroring skills in the commercial environment. You will be working within a top Global CRO and assigned 100% to a top pharma/Sponsor study/studies.

There is a realistic chance of progressing within Covance into a "Blinded Monitoring" role further down the line!

The unblinded CRA is responsible for ensuring accurate pharmacy documentation is in place, investigational medicinal product (IMP) accountability is maintained and blinded and unblinded site staff members can work in a coordinated manner without compromising the blinded monitors.

The unblinded CRA will ensure that IMP supplies are maintained in suitable storage conditions and are accurately reconstituted, dispensed, administered, returned and destroyed.

Covance is committed to the well-being and development of its employees and one of the key selling points of the UK Clinops group is its strong Management Team and great supportive team spirit between all the colleagues.

Time and again staff comment on their amazing colleagues in Covance Clinops UK and the camaraderie of the department, with many people starting their careers or joining us, developing and remaining with us for many years.

The UK Management team constantly review study/site allocations and workload to actively balance with wellbeing of staff, and take actions to address where needed working closely with project teams, unlike a lot of other CROs.

Our people are our cornerstone and we believe strongly in looking after them and their ambitions and act to do so accordingly.

We offer Office and field-based positions.


Cross-development into other departments across the organisation is a key factor in our retention!

key words CRA, unblinded CRA, clinical research associate, site monitor, pharmacy technician, research nurse, trial monitor, junior clinical research associate
