Applications are invited for the post of Clinical Fellow (Higher) in Anaesthesia at this busy major UK teaching hospital. Posts are available from August 2018 for 6 or 12 months, however other start dates may be considered.

The Clinical Fellow position would suit any trainee with a minimum of two years experience in the specialty, providing the opportunity to further their anaesthetic experience in a supervised training environment, completing modular training in a number of subspecialty areas of anaesthesia, appropriate for their level of experience.

This post is equivalent to a training post in every way, although does not have Deanery approval.

The NHS department enjoys close links with the University of Cambridge Department of Anaesthesia and opportunities to participate in research may be available to suitable applicants. These posts have an on call commitment on a full shift rota system.

Applicants must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013).

Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS/OET exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.

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. The UK Visas and Immigration department 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 UK Visas and Immigration 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.
