An opportunity has arisen to join our friendly and dedicated Haematology and Blood Transfusion team within the West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

The ideal candidate will be a Registered Biomedical Scientist with the HCPC, who will work in various areas of our Blood Sciences Department. The candidate should possess an enthusiastic and motivated outlook, whilst being professional, reliable, and innovative.

The laboratory is moving towards a full multidisciplinary blood sciences service, and as such you would be trained in all areas of the laboratory. Initially the majority of your time will be spent in Haematology,
Coagulation, and Blood Transfusion sections; subsequently you may work in rotation with other staff in all sections of the laboratory, namely Clinical Biochemistry and Immunology. You must be keen to embrace new ways of working and develop your knowledge and skills.

There is a full 24/7 hour acute service at Watford, and a Monday to Friday non urgent service being provided at Hemel Hempstead. Candidates will need to be flexible and able to participate in the full shift rota, covering nights, late shifts and weekends.

The Department is fully automated in its analytical platform for Blood Transfusion (BioRad Gelstation), Coagulation (IL TOPS), Special Haematology (BioRad Variant II) and Haematology (Beckman-Coulter DxH), and uses the Clinisys Winpath Laboratory Information system.

We are seeking enthusiastic, well-organised and highly motivated individuals, which share the values of West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, to become part of this progressive organisation. In return, the Trust is committed to the personal and professional development of its staff at all levels.

The anticipated interview date will be on the Wednesday, 1st of November 2017.
