Are you passionate about developing life-saving medicines? Would you like to work for a world-leading company which has one of the most innovative research pipelines in the industry? If you are ready to make a difference to the millions of people who rely on us to change their lives, then you could be our new Clinical Research Associate (CRA).
As a full-time, field-based CRA at Novo Nordisk, you will manage clinical trial sites across Spain. You will be involved in the development of break-through medicines, within diabetes, haemophilia and obesity, and therapy areas into which we are expanding – including cardiovascular disease.
As the first point of contact with investigators and their teams, you will be the company’s ambassador and will build strong, positive relationships to ensure that we are the preferred clinical research partner in the industry. Patient safety and high quality data generation are the most important aspects of your role, which is diverse: from selecting and initiating the clinical trial sites in your region to training and guiding site staff, taking responsibility for these sites and ensuring effective monitoring, with all tasks being conducted in compliance with Good Clinical Practice, Novo Nordisk procedures and protocols and local regulations and ethics.
About the department.
The Clinical Research department in Spain is a team of 23 employees who are responsible for running the global development clinical trials in Spain. The department has trial management and administration functions based in Madrid and 3 regional CRA teams to cover the monitoring of clinical trial sites across the country. This new CRA role has been created due to the company’s clinical expansion, as it progresses the development of innovative new medicines within its existing therapy areas, and as it enters new areas including cardiovascular disease. Today approximately 260 CRAs are helping to develop life-saving medicines in our Region Europe; over 100 new CRAs will join them within the next 6 months.
