Applications are invited for the post of Senior Clinical Fellow in Anaesthesia at this major UK teaching hospital, commencing 06 February 2019. (Other start dates will be considered)

A Senior Clinical Fellow post would suit applicants who have completed or nearly completed a recognised anaesthetic specialist training program, including someone who already possesses a CCT in Anaesthesia. The posts offer the opportunity to increase general anaesthetic experience prior to taking up a consultant post and also to develop or further an interest in a subspecialty of Anaesthesia, excluding Cardiothoracics.

The hospital offers particular experience in Neuroanaesthesia, Upper GI and Colorectal Surgery, airway experience including ENT, major reconstructive Head and Neck and Maxillofacial Surgery, Women’s Health, Pediatric Anaesthesia, regional Anaesthesia and Trauma, Transplant Anaesthesia, Vascular Anaesthesia, most major surgeries and Acute and Chronic Pain Management. The hospital is also the East of England Major Trauma Centre.

A Senior Clinical Fellow will be effectively working at Junior Consultant level with Senior Consultant support and distant supervision available at all times. Senior Clinical Fellows participate in a non- resident on call rota.

The NHS department enjoys close links with the University Of Cambridge Department Of Anaesthesia and there are opportunities for SCFs to become involved in research and other forms of career development as appropriate to the individual.

Addenbrooke’s is a thriving, modern NHS hospital based in Cambridge, England. The hospital is the local hospital for people living in the Cambridge area as well as being an internationally renowned transplant center and a regional referral center for an increasing number of specialties. It has strong international links particularly through the University. It is the teaching hospital for the University of Cambridge and is a world-class center for bio-medical research. Addenbrooke's is a flagship NHS hospital having achieved NHS Foundation Trust status in July 2004.

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 Labor 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 dependents (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.

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).
