Radiotherapy Engineer

Band 6

The Medical Physics departments at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust and East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust have formed the Kent Medical Physics Partnership, creating one of the largest medical physics organisations in the UK.

We are seeking a Radiotherapy Engineer to join the Physics Engineering Section of the Medical Physics Department based in the Kent Oncology Centre at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital

You will be an enthusiastic Electronics Engineer with proven electronics experience and technical expertise looking to join our busy Physics Engineering section, to deliver a high quality maintenance and repair service to a range of Oncology Equipment - mainly Varian, Canon, Siemens, and IGE sited throughout the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust specifically in the Kent Oncology Centre at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital and future satellite centres.

You should primarily have extensive knowledge of Electronics Engineering, with skills ideally recently gained from working within the Healthcare, Scientific  or University environments.

The post represents an excellent opportunity for a skilled engineer who is looking for a chance to further their expertise into this high tech field of Linear Accelerators.

This post is nominally a 37.5 hour week although the nature of the work requires flexibility with some evenings and weekend work.

If you can combine proven technical competence with excellent interpersonal and team working skills and would enjoy working in the ‘Garden of England’ then we can offer a very competitive salary which will fully reflect your level of skill and experience.

As an inclusive employer, we are committed to having a diverse workforce and being a Stonewall Diversity Champion and Disability Confident Committed Employer we are working to create a workplace that enables all staff to reach their full potential.  We, therefore, encourage applications from BME people, LGBT+ people and people with disabilities.

We seek to develop a culture where diversity in all its forms is celebrated. We are committed to ensuring that women are empowered to work at all levels of management and that working patterns are as flexible as possible giving all members of staff opportunity to flourish in using their skills for our patients. We work across our trust to enable those who consider themselves to have a disability both visible and invisible to have access to all they need to thrive in their work environment. We work with Stonewall to embed an inclusive and accepting culture for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff. We have 78 nationalities working in our trust and we are proud of this. We are active in embracing the ethnic and cultural diversity in our trust. We work to empower people with any protected characteristic to have opportunities to work in an environment that helps them to contribute to the best of their ability, recognising and valuing the unique contributions each of us brings for best quality care and service to our patients. We are committed to supporting the delivery of the Equality Act with zero tolerance for any discrimination, harassment or victimisation of applicants and staff with these protected characteristics

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.
