Working in partnership with our service partners, Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals, King’s College Hospital, Bedford NHS Hospital Trusts, and Princess Royal University Hospital we aim to set the standard for the future of pathology.

We are looking for a Senior Assistant Technical Officer (SATO) to join our team in this interesting and busy blood transfusion laboratory.

This laboratory, one of the busiest in the UK, performs blood group analysis and provides blood and blood products for inpatients and day cases within many of the care groups of Kings College Hospital NHS Trust.

We require an enthusiastic, flexible person who will be a very important part of our team. The post primarily involves working in a team of SATO’s assisting the Biomedical Scientists in their daily workload. There will also be involvement in working with blood samples from patients and blood donor units. The successful applicant will be responsible for data collection, input and analysis, and will provide support to the Biomedical Scientist staff by assisting with automated blood sample analysis, data processing and blood stock management. It is an interesting, varied and responsible job working in an enjoyable environment.
