Head of Biometrics : Interim (or Permanent)

Our Client is a highly ambitious and full service international Contract Research Organisation (CRO) with capabilities in both early stage and late stage clinical development.

The company is headquartered in the UK, but has operations across Europe, Australia and the United States, together with capabilities in multiple other territories.

Given the rapidly growing size and complexity of the business, the need has emerged for an experienced professional to take on the role of Head of Biometrics.  This role has overall responsibility for both Data Management and Statistics (c. 40 people in total), and reports directly to the company’s Chief Operating Officer.

This is a newly created position and is understandably one of critical importance within the company. 

Our Client’s objective is ultimately to find someone to take on the role on a permanent basis, but given that it may take some time to identify and appoint the right person, the decision has been made to appoint an Interim Head of Biometrics for an initial period of six months.

Given the situation, there is clearly a genuine possibility of a subsequent interim to permanent transition should both parties so wish.

This is a senior level role and candidates must have a significant level of Data Management / Statistics experience, with a proven track record of success in either a CRO or a well-respected pharma / biotech company.   A proven ability to manage people is a must-have.

This is an excellent opportunity in an ambitious and growing company.  The contribution to be made will be highly visible and of critical importance.  For candidates interested in the permanent position, the opportunities for further career development are certainly there.

If this opportunity is a good fit with your own areas of experience and expertise, please make contact with Geoff Newman (Interea) as soon as possible.
