Clatterbridge Cancer Centre is one of the UK’s leading cancer centres, bringing together expert staff, high quality care and excellence in research to drive forward outstanding specialist care for patients. 

We are currently embarking on an £162 million investment in facilities including a new cancer hospital in the heart of Liverpool due to open in 2020. Based on the same thriving research and healthcare campus as the University of Liverpool and Royal Liverpool University Hospital, the new hospital will ensure every patient receives truly outstanding care and can access the most advanced treatments and clinical trials for generations to come.

Our new Liverpool site will provide an environment for research to flourish – including enabling closer working with key partners; University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moore’s University, Liverpool Health Partners, Liverpool Cancer Trials Unit and partner Trusts.

Over the next four years we will build on CCC’s pioneering research in order to raise our profile nationally and transform CCC into a ‘research active hospital.’

Our research strategy priorities are interdependent and mutually-reinforcing. They will work together – and with our wider strategic priorities – to bring research into practice and so help us realise our vision of ‘excellent research for patient benefit.’

To support our vision, we are looking for applicants who share our values with a Medical Oncology specialist interest in:

  • Breast cancer
  • Hepatobiliary cancers
  • Sarcoma

Or a Clinical Oncology interest in:

  • Breast cancer
  • Urolohy cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Lymphoma

We would welcome discussions with individuals who may have a specialist interest in other areas of oncology as part of the trust’s Transforming Cancer Care strategy.

We provide a comprehensive range of inpatient care, advanced radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other systemic anti-cancer therapies including gene therapies and immunotherapies for the treatment of solid tumours and blood cancers. We are also the only facility in the UK providing low-energy proton beam therapy to treat rare eye cancers.

These posts offer candidates a new approach to develop their career by working in tumour sites that align with your experience and expertise, negotiable PA’s (up to a maximum of 12 per week) and the opportunity to actively lead and advance research and development.

Applications for these appointments should have full registration within the United Kingdom General Medical Council with a license to practice and have or be within 6 months of CCT at time of interview.

If you want to be part of a fantastic team and help support our ambition to provide the best cancer care in the country, then we want to hear from you.

The posts are offered on a full time basis but we would welcome a discussion from applicants who are looking for a more flexible working pattern to support their work life balance.
