£30401 to £43772 per annum pro-rata depending on skills and experience.

This role offers an exciting and challenging opportunity to be seconded to work alongside a dedicated and highly skilled team of clinical academics, clinical trialists, midwives and other healthcare researchers as we launch a major new clinical study of maternal screening for GBS in the UK. The trial will involve 80 maternity units across the country.

We require an enthusiastic research midwife to be a part of this exciting study, to act as a regional champion for the study. This post will work alongside the trial Lead Research Midwife and Trial Manager to ensure successful delivery of the trial in their respective region.

We believe that all clinical staff at the trial sites will require comprehensive and appropriate training and ongoing support to ensure that their patients are screened appropriately and that the study delivers the best evidence to guide a future screening strategy. We are looking for motivated and confident midwifes who can use their clinical expertise and local connections to ensure the delivery of the trial within their region. 

The post holders will be expected to work with the team to organise and oversee implantation of the trial across the regional trial sites and use their expertise in clinical midwifery to be a central point of contact for regional trial sites about trial-specific queries. Support to regional trial sites will be provided by the role holder face to face (with travel to sites) and remotely. 

We are looking to appoint a regional midwife to cover London and the South East.

This is a part-time post at 0.5FTE (18.1 hours per week). The role will be offered as a secondment until 31 March 2022 with a view to being extended dependent on the ongoing status of the study. 

Requests for secondment from NHS candidates will be considered on the basis that prior agreement has been sought from both your current line manager and the manager of your substantive post, if you are already undertaking a secondment role.
