Applications are invited for a post as Consultant in Medical Oncology to join the Cancer Directorate at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. This is a replacement post with new component to support the Gynaecological cancers and Neuroendocrine tumours services at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the research programmes of the CRUK Cambridge Cancer Centre.

Applicants are required to be on the GMC Specialist Register or within 6 months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT at the time of interview.

The Oncology Centre at Addenbrooke’s serves a core population of 1.3 million, with an extended catchment area of 2-4 million for rare tumours. Royal Papworth Hospital is due to move to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in 2019.  The Cancer Centre provides a regional oncology service with a strong research base and extensive clinical trials portfolio. The post holder will be expected to contribute significantly to the CRUK Cambridge Cancer Centre (aero digestive and brain tumour) research programmes.

The applicant 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).  Full Registration and a Licence to Practice with the General Medical Council at time of application is required.

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.
