Blood Sciences, Pathology

£31,365 to £37,890 pa + enhancements for unsocial hrs

Working pattern: 24/7 Shifts Prominently Early, Core and Late shifts

Part time position will be considered for this post

The Blood Sciences department of University Hospitals Leicester is wishing to recruit three suitably qualified and experienced Specialist Biomedical Scientists as Audit and Risk co-ordinators to be deployed in the Blood Transfusion, Specialist Chemistry and main automated (FastTrack) sections of the laboratory.

The posts have been created following restructuring and will support an existing network of staff in a department of more than 200 people.

For the role you should be HCPC registered, hold relevant qualifications and have experience commensurate with the role of a Specialist Biomedical Scientist. Previous experience in a quality role would be an advantage. Consideration may be given for the right applicant to a state registered BMS at Annex 21 Band 6 working towards a quality short course/diploma.

Our Department is an IBMS registered training facility currently offering support for the IBMS Certificate of Achievement, Registration and Specialist Portfolios.

You will need to be enthusiastic and highly motivated, computer literate, have a high level of interpersonal, organisational and communication skills, be able to supervise and motivate staff, demonstrate a strong commitment to CPD and be familiar with working to UKAS and MHRA standards. This post includes a significant level of quality responsibility with particular reference to Audits and Risk within the Q-Pulse Quality Management System.

The role involves working with the Pathology Quality Management team to provide a uniform and suitable approach to quality performance across Pathology.

The department operates a 24/7 roster across three hospital sites in Leicester. You will be required to provide support for staff working across the full roster and all sites. There will therefore be an element of weekend, evening, night and multisite working.

COVID 19 Risk Assessment

Due to the current Covid pandemic we have introduced a staff risk assessment into our pre-employment process. This now forms part of the mandatory pre-employment checks that will be carried out if you receive a conditional offer.

The risk assessment is intended to ensure you are able to safely perform your duties in any of our work areas, and if you have been identified as being particularly vulnerable to coronavirus. Our main aim is to reduce risk and to ensure the safety of all new starters to the Trust as well as current staff, patients and visitors.

If it is identified that you are within a vulnerable category, we will endeavour to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate this through discussions with both Occupational Health and your recruiting manager.

We welcome applications from individuals who require Tier 2 sponsorship. NON-UK candidates may not be appointed if the Trust is unable to satisfy the Home Office Visa requirements or there is a appointable applicant who already holds the right to work in the UK.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
