You are required to be on the GMC Specialist Register or within 6 months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT at the time of interview. 

Addenbrooke's Hospital is a progressive and forward thinking organisation which has been granted Foundation Trust status and is one of five Academic Health Science Centres in the UK. It lies on the southern boundary of Cambridge city, occupying a 66 acre site, which is shared by the University Of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine and the Medical Research Council. Close links with the University have given the hospital an international reputation for converting research and development into practical health care.

You must demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013). Full Registration and a Licence to Practice with the General Med-ical Council at time of application is required.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.
