Part Time
East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT) is a large, diverse and complex organisation with an active and vibrant research and innovation department. An exciting opportunity is available for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join our busy cancer research team in East Kent.

We are looking to appoint a Gynae-Oncology Research Nurse to support our team, which currently carries out a large portfolio of cancer studies conducted within the Trust.

The post will be based at Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, but the post-holder will also work across other sites within the Trust.

Previous research experience, along with experience of working within gynaecology and/or oncology are essential for this post.

Main duties of the job

The post holder will provide clinical research support to various departments conducting research within the Trust with a particular focus on gynae-oncology research.

In addition to the clinic/patient-based tasks, this role includes document generation and control, project tracking and logistics, data collection, adherence to Good Clinical Practice and research governance and assisting in the continued improvement in the care of research participants and quality of research data.

Due to the nature of research and potential fluctuations in study demands and/or workload and staffing levels, it may be necessary for the post holder to cover additional specialties and/or sites as required, therefore flexibility is essential
