Job Description

The Clinical Trial Transparency Manager (CTTM) will be responsible for accurate and timely national and international posting of all clinical trial information, both pre- and mid-study information, and post-study results.  In this roll, the CTTM will develop inĀ­-depth knowledge of the posting requirements for all portals in which Vettex participates. The CTTM will work with cross functional departments e.g., Clinical Development (including Biometrics and Data Analysis, Clinical Operations, and Regulatory Affairs), Quality Management and Control, Corporate Compliance, and specific colleagues to ensure timely and accurate information is entered into the required portals.  Recognizing that performance in this role will be cyclical and tied to clinical trial start-up and completion timing, the CTTM will also be assigned other cross-functional project management roles specific to Clinical Business Operations (CDE) to ensure he or she has a job that is equal to a full-time equivalent.  These assignments will be in areas that help inform and develop the core responsibility of clinical trial posting.

The responsibly for all trial posting will require the incumbent to have advanced and well-practiced project management skills and methods necessary to stay current with all ongoing studies at Vertex in order to create timely and accurate initial and updated postings.  The incumbent will rely heavily on many cross functional colleagues to obtain the requisite information and therefore will require adept skills in peer-management and interpersonal communication.  To be successful, the incumbent will need to be a consummate "team player" and be able to stay focused and current on multiple, but associated assignments.
