The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust (RM) is recognised world-wide for the quality of its cancer services. The Trust’s strategic aim is to achieve excellence in cancer treatment and diagnosis, through partnership and collaboration. The Royal Marsden and its academic partner, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) together have over 4,500 scientific, clinical and nursing staff working or studying with us. Our joint research strategy sets out to maintain and strengthen this unique partnership in order to enhance cancer research.

The NIHR Specialist Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) for Cancer is based at the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust (RM) and The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), which together form the largest Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Europe. Our BRC’s excellence in biomedical research and experimental medicine, together with our strategic partnerships with industry, cancer charities and NIHR infrastructure, ensure that we can translate scientific advances about cancer into real benefit for patients. We aim to deliver improved targeted therapies for all cancer patients through personalised and stratified treatment specific to individual genetic, molecular and functional characteristics.

‘Patient Reported Outcomes Following Initial treatment and Long term Evaluation of Survivorship (PROFILES)’ is a registry for the study of the physical and psycho-social impact of cancer and its treatment from a dynamic, growing population-based cohort of both short and long-term cancer survivors. PROFILES is a tool that enables data collection management; from inviting patients to participation in studies, to collecting patient-reported outcomes data via web-based or mailed questionnaires, and linking these data with clinical data. PROFILES will be implemented in the Royal Marsden Hospital as part of the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) strategy to enable the incorporation of patient data in research, ultimately leading to meaningful improvements in outcome and experience of patients.

We are seeking a PROFILES Administrator who will take care of the logistic processes to ensure that data collection processes work smoothly. The Administrator will provide training to staff who use the PROFILES system and will support researchers in initiating and managing day to day running of PROFILES studies in accordance with Good Clinical Practice and RM/ICR Standard Operating Procedures. 

We are looking for an experienced individual with a degree in IT or health sciences, and with practical experience of data entry and data management. The successful candidate will demonstrate excellent communication skills, the ability to exercise judgement, passion for their work, flexibility and a strong customer focus. We expect the ideal candidate to show evidence of professional development and be prepared to undertake further development.
