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 has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated Assistant Service Manager to join the Outpatients team at Evelina. You will manage a team of Patient Access Coordinators and Patient Pathway coordinators, working closely with the Deputy Service Manager. The successful candidate will be expected to have well developed team working and written / verbal communication skills. You will also be required to work independently and to adapt / prioritise work to ensure the continuous delivery of effective outcomes and high quality experience.

The Evelina London Children’s Hospital opened in October 2005 and is the first new children’s hospital in London for more than 100 years. It is part of Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and is located on the St. Thomas’ hospital site. The Evelina has 140 in-patient beds, with an additional 40 neo-natal unit cots in the North Wing of the St Thomas’ Hospital site.

The Evelina Children’s Hospital is the second largest provider of children’s services in London, providing secondary acute services to the local area, and an almost comprehensive portfolio of tertiary services to South London and South East England. As a specialist paediatric hospital, the Evelina is unique in having this broad scope of secondary and tertiary paediatric specialities collocated on the same site as maternity and A&E, as well as equivalent adult services for transition.

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.

The postholder will have regular contact with vulnerable people and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
