PURPOSE

Assist in the production of high-quality patient recruitment materials for Global Patient & Site Solutions (GPSS). Contribute to the efficient running and timely completion of all projects.

RESPONSIBILITIES

• Edit and proofread copy for a wide range of patient recruitment materials for clinical

trials – including printed materials, Informed Consent Forms, Investigator Meeting slide

presentations and signage, and digital materials – to agreed style/specifications,

checking content, clarity, accuracy, consistency, syntax and grammar.

• Effectively project manage, in collaboration with the Solutions Management (PM) team,

the progression of assigned projects from the Word copy stage to print stage as

necessary, liaising with internal departments/external suppliers when required.

• Have a proactive awareness of budgeted and current hours on each project. Deliver

assigned projects and tasks in accordance with budgeted hours and agreed deadlines.

• Work collaboratively with the design team to ensure the smooth delivery of materials,

ensuring that all copy is marked up, studio trackers are completed correctly, and

deadlines are clearly communicated, negotiated when necessary, and ultimately met on

time.

• Check all proof stages from initial layouts to printers' proofs, liaising with designers at

each stage, incorporating internal study team/sponsor corrections as required, and

liaising with relevant internal stakeholders to ensure full input and approval of copy.

• Check typeset proofs of translated toolkit items (in PDF format) against source

documents and master English layouts to agreed timelines. Identify and electronically

mark up any corrections to translated proofs on PDFs as necessary in a timely manner.

Manage the proof amends cycle by liaising with external translation service providers,

checking that amends have been implemented correctly on revised proofs, and finalising

clean files.

• Use appropriate software to upload approved files to print, and check associated

printer's proofs (and production job sheets) once received, to agreed timelines.

• Act as a core member of the project team, actively participating in kick-off meetings and

project status meetings in order to share project progress and keep the team up to date

with project milestones and timelines. Assist and contribute to the development and

ongoing negotiation of timelines, where appropriate, between multiple teams.

• Assist with study name research where necessary, involving completion of a name

research template document for client review.

• Work to short notice and to very tight turn arounds, when necessary. Effectively manage

own time, working with global teams and keeping an awareness of the wider timeline

and deadlines.

• Develop effective working relationships with fellow team members and external vendors (e.g. translation service providers), as required.

• Act as process champion when required. Collaborate with internal team members to

troubleshoot and problem-solve project-specific challenges throughout the life cycle as

necessary, so that quality is adhered to and timelines are met.

• Good computer skills, including MS office, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, Internet

and reference management programs.

• Strong communication skills (written and verbal).

• Excellent command of English language and attention to detail.

• Eye for design and layout.

• Excellent copy-editing and proofreading skills.

• Sufficient knowledge of life science for critical review of copy.

• Ability to work both independently and in a team environment.

• Ability to perform multiple tasks and prioritise work effectively.

• Ability to work to tight timelines.

• Ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with co-workers,

managers, clients and suppliers.
