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.

Have you always wanted to work in an innovative and emerging field and have an interest in technology? Then this is the opportunity for you. We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, dynamic and motivated individual to join our team as a Simulation Technician on a permanent basis.

This represents an excellent opportunity for those with a keen interest in computers, electronics and gadgets. You will gain experience in the use of full body human patient simulators, virtual reality simulators, part-body simulators and more.

The post will suit individuals who are used to and enjoy working in busy, client-facing environments. And also those who are able to work autonomously and independently with a well developed sense of responsibility. A flexible approach is essential for this role.

This post offers the opportunity to work with healthcare professionals, students, faculty and industry. You should have excellent interpersonal and communication as well as advanced computer skills.

Knowledge of working with simulation manikins would be an advantage as would previous time working in a hospital environment or skills centre.

The post is based at St. Thomas’ Hospital. However, the post holder will also be required to work regularly at Guy’s Hospital, and occasionally at King’s College Hospital, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts, and other off-site locations.

We provide support for training and development.

Applicant requirements

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.
