Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust Cardiac Catheter Labs are looking for enthusiastic Radiographers to supplement our growing Cardiac department.

The Catheter Laboratory suite forms part of the North West Regional Cardiology service. It is one of the busiest in the country, performing in excess of 5500 procedures a year. We provide a 24/7 Primary Angioplasty Service covering the Greater Manchester geographical area. MFT is the highest volume TAVI centre in the NW and has recently been selected as the centre for the UK TAVI trial. We are a leading structural intervention centre and cover the whole portfolio of procedures including being 1 of only 3 centres in the UK to perform Mitraclip. There are now plans for further expansion and improvement to the Department.

We are a multidisciplinary team who work closely together and support each other whilst providing high quality care to our patients.

As a Cardiac Specialist Centre applicants will be expected to take part in a busy Primary PCI on call system. A move to extended working days will result in shift work between the hours of 8am and 9pm with weekend working commitments.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our established team. If you would like an informal visit or further information please contact us.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

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.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
