Job Description

Are you a junior doctor looking for a non-NHS role to diversify your portfolio and experience?

This job is for doctors who are curious about exploring non-traditional careers. If you keep Googling ‘alternative careers for doctors’ or ‘jobs for doctors outside medicine’ then here’s one career path that you might want to look into.

We are looking for a clinical research physician to work at a leading clinical research organisation in Glasgow. This role is a permanent job within a global leader in the clinical research industry and would be suitable for a doctor with clinical research, medicine or A&E experience.

Are you dreaming of a better work-life balance with Monday to Friday daytime work?

Do you want to go back to basics and offer the best service in one-on-one time with participants in the trial? You will provide a thorough review of their eligibility for the trial in line with clinical standards and protocols.

You can earn a competitive salary as a junior doctor working in the clinical research and pharmaceutical industry.

What does a clinical research physician do?

Pharmaceutical companies need to run clinical trials to prove their medical works to prevent/cure/manage diseases, viruses etc. The running of these trials goes to leaders in the clinical research industry such as this client who run the trial on their behalf.

There are lots of protocols and regulations around the trial, participants, medication and data required from the study.

Your job as a clinical research physician is to read and understand the protocols and regulations, evaluate the participant’s suitability, get informed consent and enrol them into the study. You may need to give them the medication and then collect clinical data such as physical examination, blood tests and follow-ups throughout the duration of the trial.

We sat down with one of our doctors and asked what a typical day looks like for a clinical research doctor. You can watch that here.

Will I be trained?

Yes, you will undergo training with the organisation you are working for as its important you understand how to work to their high standards to prioritise patient safety and ensure the trial is delivered effectively

What are the requirements?

You will have the following:

  • GMC registration
  • Completed foundation FY1 and FY2 training
  • Experience in A&E, Medicine or similar
  • Right to work in the UK

Unfortunately, the client is unable to offer visa sponsorship at the time and as a result, we are unable to process any applications which require sponsorship. We do have a portfolio of work available where sponsorship options are available. Please review the other roles we have available here.
