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.

This is an exciting opportunity in the Theatres, Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine (TAP) directorate as maternity leave cover for the Deputy General Manager role.

TAP has over 650 qualified nursing staff, 100 consultant anaesthetists, and an annual income of £50 million.

The service manages 37 theatres across two hospital sites, making it one of the largest theatre services in the NHS. The directorate also includes pre-operative assessment services and post-operative care services, and delivers anaesthesia in a range of non-theatre locations i.e. interventional radiology, cardiac cath labs, assisted conception unit.
Surgery was rated "good" in the most recent CQC Inspection, and TAP is looking to build on feedback to develop and improve the quality of its care.

There are a number of projects across the department as we seek to support the objectives of the organisation. These include close working with surgical teams to drive improved theatre efficiency, and the development of additional theatre capacity through internal solutions and in conjunction with NHS and commercial partners.

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 access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties 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.
