Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

An exciting opportunity is available to join the team supporting medical technology in this large central London teaching hospitals Trust.
Medical Physics provides a comprehensive range of scientific and technical services to all of the Trust’s main acute and community sites. This post is based in the Clinical Engineering section, which provides expert advice and assistance to a wide range of clinical staff, senior managers and Trust Directors on medical device issues and policy. 

The successful applicant will participate in implementation and development of Clinical Engineering’s Trust-wide medical device management work, supporting the Trust's Medical Device Policy. The Post holder will work on a wide range of tasks requiring initiative and attention to detail and will undertake development projects which require a high level of technical and analytical ability, mostly service or procedure developments but also regulatory and technical input to novel medical devices. They will be responsible for developing the inventory and maintenance database and also provide expert input to inform purchase and replacement planning decisions, planning of service contracts and supplier relationship management.

High standards of spoken and written communication and interpersonal skills will be required alongside technical and IT skills.
The post will require continually updated learning as technology evolves so is best suited to applicants able to motivate themselves from an interest in getting involved in the operations and productivity of an acute hospitals trust and having a concern for the quality of support delivered to frontline clinical services.

Successful applicants also need to be able to work flexibly outside conventional working hours, including overnight and at weekends, depedent on arising project work.
