tl Associate Application Specialist/ Business Analyst - London W6 tr

Location: South East

Salary: £22,500 starting salary
Date Posted: 01 February 2018
Vacancy Type: Permanent
Job Description:

Our client is looking to recruit additional Associate Applications Specialist (AAS). This is a full-time, permanent role based in our Hammersmith, London office

Our client is a software house focusing on the development of eCOA applications which are used by Pharmaceutical Clients and CRO’s when running Clinical Trials.  The software is delivered on handheld devices (mobiles and tablets) and input of information is done by doctors, nurses, clinicians, the patients themselves or their family members.

The Associate Application Specialist will work in a hybrid software enhancement and business analyst capacity.  This is an permanent position and would suit an individual with an interest in business, technology and particularly this sector. Previous successful applicants have progressed to Application Specialist, Senior Application Specialist, Project Manager and Pre-Sales Support.

The core development of our client's range of tools is conducted from their Research and Development (R&D) establishment in Helsinki, Finland. In their UK and US offices, it is more about modifying the product range, so that the nuances work most effectively for their clients’ needs. The changes may be around modifying the layout of the GUI front end, ensuring the buttons are where the client wants them, that the questionnaires have lined up and formatted sentences, the logo is where they want it or the “welcome message” personalised.  

To undertake this work our client uses a proprietary language, but this is not unlike SQL or Java; therefore, exposure to these tools is preferred.

For this level of role, we are looking at a starting salary of £22,500. We will consider:

  • Individuals who have completed an IT orientated diploma or Masters, with knowledge of SQL, Java or programming languages
  • Worked in a similar environment, understanding the clients requirements and tailoring the front end of proprietary software
  • Maybe you have worked with a mobile phone seller and have a great knowledge of hand held devices, are proficient in their use and in helping the customer in using the devices.
  • Maybe you are returning to work and looking to utilise your IT skills OR
  • Have worked in Clinical Trials and understand the issues encountered by clinicians and are able to use your real technical expertise in improving their experience.

Who it is not right for? Dyed in the wool software developers who just want to code and write software! (Our R&D is undertaken in Romania and Finland. This is NOT a Software Developer role!!!)


  • Assist requirement gathering and business analyst tasks for eCOA collection, reporting and data transfer
