About this Role

When our values align, there's no limit to what we can achieve.

At Parexel, we all share the same goal - to improve the world's health. From clinical trials to regulatory, consulting, and market access, every clinical development solution we provide is underpinned by something special - a deep conviction in what we do.

Each of us, no matter what we do at Parexel, contributes to the development of a therapy that ultimately will benefit a patient. We take our work personally, we do it with empathy and we're committed to making a difference.

Parexel are searching for an experienced Vendor/Category leader who has experience operating at category level rather than site level. Ideally with some experience in RLT or Radiotherapies.

As the Vendor Alliance Lead, Associate Director, you are responsible for the management of outsourced clinical activities and deliverables of one or more External Relationship Management Teams.

Some specifics about this advertised role

  • 100% Home-based
  • Provide management and matrix management to the wider vendor team
  • A focus on Vendor Governance:
    • General oversight of the function
    • Management of the study portfolio
    • Reviewing and reporting on KPI's
    • Performing new vendor qualification and onboarding of new vendors.
  • Global remit, across complex clinical trials

Vendor Alliance Lead at Parexel

Due to the nature of our projects and sponsors, we hire more experienced professionals, who have already spent several years in the role, with study start-up and vendor management.

You’ll report to a Senior FSP Operations Director but will have considerable operational freedom and plenty of sponsor contact. Managers who join us often say they particularly like the agility and pace here. We’re all about making the right decisions fast.

Working with Parexel means you’ll be directed by the sponsor, while remaining part of our worldwide team. We’ll partner with your sponsor to plan your training and career progression. Promotion can come at any time, and not just at the end of an assignment.

Just finally, we value work-life balance. We aim to keep regular hours and maintain our lives outside the office. We’ll value your welfare just as highly as that of our patients. And our managers will listen to, and act on, any concerns.

What we look for in our Vendor Alliance Leaders.

Precise requirements for each role vary from sponsor to sponsor, but generally we look for people with at least 5 years’ direct experience.

Additionally, you’ll need: -

  • 5+ years working experience and excellent knowledge of the clinical operation processes and vendor management
  • Bachelors degree or equivalent in Science or Business is essential.
  • Excellent knowledge of GxP and ICH regulations
  • Expert knowledge of clinical trial design and mapping to supplier requirements
  • History of successfully working in a cross-functional global team and proven ability to function in matrix structure organization
  • Experience in User Acceptance testing
  • Knowledge of key deliverables that impact green light milestones and vendor readiness
  • Experience or Expertise with Central Labs, Electronic Clinical Outcomes Assessment (eCOA), and Electronic Patient Reported Outcome (ePRO), Interactive Response Technology (IRT), Cardiac and Respiratory diagnostics, Patient Recruitment and Retention (PR&R), Imaging reading (global process ownership, business system owner, SOP management, global training on supplier related SOPs and processes)
