This is an exciting opportunity for an individual to join an experienced team and help deliver ultrasound services across Leeds. The successful candidate will be based predominantly at either SJUH or LGI with option to rotate between sites due to the differing variety in workload and demand.

We aim to provide the opportunity to gain further experience in a wide range of examinations, including General Medical, Obstetric, Gynaecological, Small Parts, MSK and Vascular.

Ideally you will have the flexibility to work across the whole of the organisation to be deployed where service demand requires. Having your own transport is advantageous but not essential.

There will a commitment to participate in weekend and bank holidays, which covers Early Pregnancy and In-Patient / Emergency assessment wards at SJUH.

All applicants must be registered with the HPC and hold a DMU or PG Diploma in Medical Ultrasound and be qualified.
