We are looking for a Band 6 Clinical Technologist / Planning Dosimetrist with good experience in radiotherapy treatment planning and/or mould room techniques to join our friendly team in the Radiotherapy Physics department at the Royal Derby Hospital.

The post combines radiotherapy treatment planning and mould room activities. You will primarily be responsible for the production of external beam treatment plans but will also be required to undertake a full range of mould room tasks such as immobilisation shell fitting and the creation of lead shielding, customised tissue equivalent bolus and patient specific electron end-frame apertures.

The mould room work will generally be to assist the lead mould room Clinical Technologist but, during times of absence, you will be required to lead in these activities.

Main duties of the job

The Radiotherapy department has four networked Varian TrueBeam linear accelerators, CT scanner, Superficial Treatment Unit, HDR brachytherapy, and Eclipse Treatment Planning.

The applicant should be from a Therapeutic Radiography or Clinical Technologist background with a suitable scientific degree (or equivalent). The patient-facing aspect of the post requires that the applicant should be personable, patient and caring. If you are a Therapeutic Radiographer then you should be HCPC registered. Applicants from a Clinical Technologist background should ideally be on the voluntary register or should be appropriately qualified and prepared to work towards registration at the earliest opportunity.

Closing date of applications: 27 February 2024

Interview date: 12 March 2024
