Our Client consider CRA's as Site Managers rather than monitors, and as such they should be proactive in identifying and assessing's issues and trends with the objective of finding solutions.

We are in the main looking for Senior CRA's due to complexity of protocols in small specialist TAs (oncology and niche areas of cardiology). Some start-up experience would be advantageous also but not critical. Studies are generally in Phase II - early Phase III. Some Phase I in oncology

Field based roles are available, but successful candidates are encouraged to visit the office every 4-6 weeks to meet with CTA's, CLM's and do file reviews

National monitoring is normal but our Client would try to align sites to location where possible

No 'Days on Site' metric! - but on average CRA's are out 2-3 days per week with 6-8 sites assigned per CRA

Our Cient like SCRA's to get involved in CRA forums, co-monitoring and mentoring. They support development from within into the CLM role, so longer term opportunities are available for SCRA's who want to progress.
