If you are a clinical research nurse looking to further your experience in a well-established NHS trust this is an opportunity for YOU!

Our client in Cambridge is looking for a clinical research nurse to join their ever-growing team of professionals. The hospital is a wonderful place to work. Their patients often talk about feeling part of the 'family' and it is true for their staff members too. Across the hospital, they aim to create an environment where everyone feels valued and rewarded for the incredible work they do, whether it's a simple 'hello, how are you?' in the corridor or their annual Staff Awards ceremony. 
The hospital has the UK’s largest Respiratory Support and Sleep Centre (RSSC). It is the only centre in the UK for several specialist services including Pulmonary Endarterectomy and Balloon Pulmonary Angioplasty (BPA). It is also the only UK hospital who offer pulmonary endarterectomy surgery and have the second largest experience in the world. This is an operation – which can take up to 10 hours – to clear blood clots from the arteries of the lungs to reduce breathlessness and prolong life.
Within the surrounding area, there is a selection of attractions including fascinating libraries and museums. Cambridge is also home to a lot of royal history and prestigious universities which date back to the early 20th century.
