Job Reference: 321-CORP-ISPM-B7

Employer: Department: Research & Development Location: OUH@Cowley, Unipart House Business Centre, Oxford Salary: £38,890 - £44,503 per annum pro rata

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.

Many of our recruitment programmes use V alue Based Interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

The Research and Development Department (R&D) teams at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) are part of the Joint Research Office (JRO). This was established by the University of Oxford (OU) and OUH to bring together the central clinical research support services of both organisations. The teams perform a range of activities to promote and facilitate research, as well as to support clinical researchers and their study teams to ensure that both organisations meet their legal responsibilities as hosts and sponsors of clinical research.

We wish to recruit a motivated, dedicated and experienced information systems product manager to lead on new software developments for managing clinical research at the JRO. Reporting to the Head of R&D Information Systems, you will take responsibility for the development and rollout of clinical research project and portfolio management solutions and their integration with local trust and national systems with the aim of improving
the business efficiency and productivity of clinical research at the OUH our wider partner organisations.

The role would suit someone who has worked in clinical research either as a research nurse, research coordinator, performance manager or data manager who now wants to extend their career into a more dedicated software development and support environment.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with colleagues in the University-Hospital partnership to implement new software and technology which will make a real difference to the management and performance of clinical research.
