We are a forward thinking department, committed to training, encouraging and supporting personal development. We have recently appointed a lead sonographer across the trust. The department has Toshiba and GE machines.

You will be a flexible team player with excellent communication skills and able to work as part of a multidisciplinary team. You will be required to organise your workload according to demand, scanning inpatients, outpatients and GP referrals. We expect a high quality of patient care to maintain our efficient and cost effect service.

The Ultrasound department operates 7 day working. You will be expected to participate in the weekend and bank holiday rota. The service supports flexible working arrangements the majority of our team contribute to extended days through flexible contracts.

This post is 15 hours permanent and 19 hours for 1 year covering maternity leave.

Anyone newly appointed to the trust will be subject to the completion of a satisfactory 6 month probationary period (this includes bank staff). This will give the new staff member an opportunity to become familiar with the role and working environment.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
