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 believe that all clinical staff at the trial sites will require comprehensive and appropriate training and ongoing support to ensure that sites are set up efficiently, 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 connections to ensure the delivery of the trial within the sites they support.

The post holder will be expected to work with the team to organise and oversee implementation of the trial across the trial sites and use their expertise in clinical midwifery to be a central point of contact for trial sites about trial-specific queries.

We are looking to appoint a midwife from any region in Scotland, England or Wales. Support to trial sites will be provided by the role holder largely through remote working, with very occasional travel to sites to offer face to face support.

This is a part time posts, 18.75 hours per week and working days are flexible. The role will be offered as a secondment from your NHS Trust for a period of 1 year with a view to being extended dependent on the extension of the trial.
