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.

A number of exciting opportunities are available to join the team supporting medical technology in this large central London teaching hospitals Trust, for new entrants to this field.

Medical Physics provides a comprehensive range of scientific and technical services to all of the Trust’s main acute and community sites. The core purpose of the Medical Equipment Management Services (MEMS) Section, in which these posts are based, is provision of repair, calibration and maintenance to a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic medical equipment, to ensure equipment operates effectively and safely with a minimum of downtime.

The successful applicant will be expected to carry out scheduled servicing, repair, calibration and acceptance on a range of medical equipment and will be required to work to high standards of safety and accountability. They will have regular dialogue with clinical and technical staff to identify faults and repair equipment, including working in clinical areas and with manufacturers.

You will need to be a mature, self-motivated individual with an appropriate qualification.

Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified, skilled and motivated individuals who do not have previous technical experience in healthcare or hospitals, as support and training can be provided. Experience in equipment maintenance of complex electronic equipment will be taken into consideration. An understanding of the modern healthcare environment would also be an advantage.

Applicants will be expected to have a genuine affinity for the Trust’s values, putting patients first in all they do. High standards of spoken and written communication and interpersonal skills will be required alongside technical and IT skills.

These posts will require continually updated learning as technology evolves so are 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 will also need to be able to occasionally work flexibly outside conventional working hours. Working pattern - 37.5 hrs Mon-Fri 09:00-17:30, Occasional Out-of-Hours.

Please note that this vacancy may close before the advertised closing date if sufficient applications are received. Please check your email regularly as candidates shortlisted for interview will be contacted and informed via email or NHS Jobs.

Closing date: 18 October 2017.

Interviews will be held on 2 and 3 November 2017.
