We are recruiting for a Specialist Radiographer MRI/CT who shares our vision to be trusted to provide consistently outstanding care and exemplary service to our patients.

You will have MRI experience and ideally some CT experience as well. Based at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, you will perform a range of MR and CT examinations, and will participate in a cross site rota with our sister site at the new QEII Hospital.

In addition to general MR examinations, there is a fortnightly paediatric session for sedated and general anaesthetic cases and a dedicated session for patients with conditional pacemakers with support from cardiology.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly, energetic department. There is a strong culture of teamwork and staff development, with CPD being actively encouraged and supported.

We are looking for enthusiastic, flexible, forward thinking and highly motivated radiographers, with good communication skills and team working ethic.

A lovely place to work with a great team spirit

We all work together as a team and help each other as much as we can

Our Values are Include, Respect and Improve. It is important that you understand and refer to our values during your recruitment process and beyond!

Main duties of the job

We are looking for experienced individuals with proven clinical ability in MR imaging and some CT experience, who have the desire to develop their career and increase their expertise in a modern, well-equipped environment. Training will be provided to support you in your role.

If the ideal candidate wishes to keep up other radiographic skills this can be accommodated.

The Trust currently has 5 CT scanners (Siemens and Toshiba) and 3 Siemens MRI scanners (3T and a new 1.5T).
