Abbott CLINICAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE in Witney, United Kingdom

Known for the development of revolutionary technologies, Abbott Diabetes Care (ADC) designs, develops and manufactures glucose monitoring systems for use in both home and hospital settings. We are passionate about doing work that improves the quality of people’s lives. We now have an exciting opportunity in our growing Clinical Affairs function for a Clinical Research Associate.

The role of CRA for Abbott Diabetes Care is much more than just being a monitor. On a day by day basis, you will find yourself representing Abbott Diabetes Care regarding the conduct of clinical investigations at study sites across the UK and possibly other European countries for the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System, and other ADC technologies, ensuring these are compliant to protocols, Abbott procedures, and applicable regulations. You will be a key point of contact for the site, and support with all associated activities, including monitoring, verification of source data, issue resolution, correspondence, and study start up.

You should be excited about working in a fast-paced environment within a hard-working and welcoming team. You will be keen to develop your exposure of Clinical Trials, and we would welcome candidates from both a monitoring and broader Clinical Research Associate background.

To be successful, you will ideally be qualified in a physical science discipline to HNC or higher, and preferably bring experience of working in a Medical Device/IVD environment (although a Pharmaceutical background may also be considered).

The ideal candidate will be a proactive individual who takes initiative and is able to work within a team. You will need to have good communication and time management skills, and be comfortable working in a fast-paced, changing environment. There will be opportunity to collaborate with multiple teams across the Abbott Diabetes Care business, including Data Management, Regulatory, Statistics, and Scientific Affairs. Travel is expected to be circa 60% of the role, with the remaining time spent at our Manufacturing Centre of Excellence and R&D Facility in Witney, Oxfordshire.

In addition to a competitive salary, Abbott offers a highly attractive benefits package which includes a defined-contribution pension scheme, private healthcare, life assurance, and a flexible benefits scheme which you can tailor to your own requirements. A car allowance is also provided for this role.
