At the heart of our Phase I-IV operations is the expert management and coordination of clinical trial data. We lead the way in both the use of technology and in our standards – it is our Data Managers that are a core component of this success. ICON uses a vast array of technologies, including Electronic Data Capture (EDC) systems such as Oracle Inform, Medidata RAVE, Datatrak and our in-house EDC tool: AptivAdvantage. Our impressive portfolio continues to grow, with the use of a variety of CDISC models, including SDTM and ADaM.
Those who work in data management with ICON can expect excellent cross-learning initiatives as part of a structured career plan. Our clear approach to development provides all our employees, of all ages, with a chance to progress within the business and advance their technical and process skill development. Our online learning and knowledge portal is used extensively by our employees, and we have specific initiatives driven by employees including competency development and sharing, information cascade projects, fun at work schemes an ongoing effort to continually improve our functions and processes.
We pride ourselves on valuing our people and we foster a close working atmosphere. In all our offices, be it in India (Bangalore, Chennai and Trivandrum), in the US (Warrington, Pennsylvania) or elsewhere, we encourage a culture of employee recognition through our Inspire programme. We also maintain a flexible working culture when appropriate, available to everyone, including Clinical Data Leads, Project Managers, Associates, Co-ordinators and Programmers. We also have a pool of people certified in CCDM and PMP and support our employees in gaining these accreditations through in-house expert mentoring. Those applying for managerial-level roles can expect to receive specific learning opportunities to continue your professional development.
Our Data Managers will need to possess an understanding of clinical trials and outcomes, therapeutic area expertise and protocol knowledge. Understanding GCP practices, DMP, eCRF designing and knowledge of EDCs (particularly beneficial if familiar with the ones we operate, as listed above) is also beneficial, as is an eye for detail. At ICON, we foster a close working culture and are proud of our team ethic. If you are happy working as part of a great team, then we look forward to hearing from you!
