Position: Research Manager, Patient-Centered Outcomes

Closing Date: Ongoing
Company: Adelphi Values
Location: Bollington, UK

Job Description

Who we are: Adelphi Values is a leading health outcomes consultancy that works with a wide range of pharmaceutical and medical device companies. In the Patient-Centered Outcomes team we are global leaders in the selection, development, validation and use of Clinical Outcome Assessments (COA) including Patient-Reported Outcomes, Clinician-Reported Outcomes (ClinRO), Observer-Reported Outcomes (ObsRO) and Performance-Reported Outcomes (PerfO).  We are a friendly but dedicated team of researchers, proud of our high standards of scientific rigor and client service, committed to personal development and rewarding high performance. We are equally proud of our friendly, supportive culture and our approach to people and their working environment as we are of our reputation and high quality research which puts the patient at the centre of drug development.


What we do: Our purpose is to improve patients’ lives by informing healthcare decisions. In the Patient-Centered Outcomes team we do this primarily through supporting clients in the selection, development, validation and implementation of Clinical Outcome Assessments that form trial endpoints or are used in clinical practice.


What we are looking for: We are looking to recruit an ambitious individual to join our Patient-Centered Outcomes team in Bollington, Cheshire, UK.  The ideal candidate will have relevant qualifications in health psychology, psychology or related disciplines, some direct experience of PROs/clinical outcome assessments and will be looking to further enhance their skills in a dynamic global healthcare consultancy. Ideally you should have hands-on experience of developing and/or validating patient-reported outcome instruments or other clinical outcomes assessments to regulatory standards, a working knowledge of qualitative research methods, an understanding of clinical research, and an appreciation of the practical challenges of evaluating treatment benefits from a patient perspective. An understanding of statistical techniques used in psychometric validation would be an advantage.  Line management abilities as well as excellent communication and leadership skills are also highly desirable and being a good team player is essential.


How you fit in:  You will help manage projects and clients, brainstorm and prepare client proposals, secure future business, and manage and lead various types of projects related to selection, development and validation of health outcome assessments.  You will also play a key role in supporting more junior team members in terms of training and development and will generally be the primary client contact on a project.  This is an exciting and visible role with real potential for future growth and development in which you will help design, win and deliver important and innovative projects in the field of patient-reported outcomes.


What we offer: We believe in rewarding high performance – so our benefits package includes a competitive salary (with scope for increases based on performance), performance-related rewards, health insurance, a generous pension, and on-site gym membership. We are committed to your development, and we provide support for training and development in a friendly and informal office environment along with opportunities for progression. This position is based at our European head office, in a beautiful rural location just outside Manchester, UK, however the global nature of our business provides opportunities for travel and international working.
