We are looking for a cardiac physiologist with basic experience and knowledge of cardiac rhythm devices who is looking to develop their knowledge and skills

We are a friendly and supportive department, with a strong ethos of encouragement and support for staff with their ongoing CPD. We have good links with research and development and strong links with Imperial College Healthcare.

A BSc Cardiac Physiology qualification or equivalent is essential and accreditation in cardiac devices (BHRS, EHRA or IBHRE) is desirable.

Successful applicants who do not hold a CRM accreditation will be expected to achieve this within a specific time frame and will be offered support to do so.

Members of the cardiac physiology team will be expected to rotate around areas of cardiology such as the catheter labs (angiograms, PCI, PPCI, IVUS, OCT, FFR), exercise tolerance testing, tilt tests, tape analysis, device follow up, remote monitoring follow up and device implant to keep up existing skills so experience in those areas would be an advantage.

There is currently no on call commitment and the hours are Monday to Friday 5 days a week
