Clinical Trial Endpoint has an exciting opportunity for an experienced quality assurance specialist who is seeking to grow and diversify their career. We are a highly innovative company who developed their own healthcare technology application - ‘RealWorld Data’.

About Us

Clinical Trial EndPoint Ltd was established in 2002 by two former senior executives from the pharmaceutical sector. Stephen Dorman was formerly managing director of world leading pharma company GSK (Ireland) and Tomas O’Mahoney was European Clinical Project Manager in Sanofi. CTEP has its offices and development centre at City West, Dublin 24.

The company specialises in providing electronic patient data capture (EDC) software for real world (observational) studies to the pharmaceutical sector either directly or through global Contract Research Organisations (CROs).

The demand for real-world patient data is growing rapidly and there is clear recognition that the software functionality in post-approval studies should be different to that deployed in pre-approval clinical trials. CTEP’s RealWorld EDC product has been developed specifically to capitalize on this opportunity. From a strong customer base in Ireland, CTEP is now working to intensify its sales and marketing activities within Europe and key global markets such as Japan.

Japan is a niche market for RealWorld EDC as Post Marketing Surveillance studies are mandatory in this large market. CTEP has been localising its software specifically for the Japanese market. Progressing sales and marketing activities in Japan will be a key area of focus in this role.
