Testimonials from previous STAR Chairs:
Being the STAR Chair for three years, pretty much since the group's inception, was challenging but extremely rewarding - particularly in terms of how I was able to develop my leadership, management and importantly networking skills. This was incredibly useful experience for working as a consultant and has acted as a stepping stone for me to having a regional NIHR lead role. Interestingly, the actual clinical research knowledge required initially was minimal but I developed this as time went on as chair. I highly recommend this role and I'd be very happy to chat to anyone interested in the position about how I found it.
Dr Chris Newell
Working as STAR chair over the last 3+ years has been fantastic – I would thoroughly recommend the role to anyone interested in leading a motivated and competent team, with the reassurance of being well supported by Chris as Consultant Supervisor. I have had unparalleled opportunities to lead regional work, represent the group nationally, and deliver exciting innovation and change in my time as chair. For anyone interested but without research experience, I wouldn’t worry too much as the role will teach you all that you need to know, whilst allowing you the chance to develop your management and leadership skills on a regional and national level.
