Applications are invited for a Senior Clinical Fellow in Head and Neck and Thyroid Surgery (ENT) at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. This post is available from ASAP for 12 months.

The duties of this post include management of Benign and Malignant Head and Neck Pathology under the supervision of three Surgeons. Cambridge University Hospitals is a regional and tertiary referral centre and runs a busy Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Unit. All aspects of Head and Neck surgery are performed in the Unit and there is close collaboration with the Neurosurgical team for the management of craniofacial pathology.

The Fellow will also gain considerable experience in management of Surgical Thyroid and Parathyroid Disease as all these procedures are performed by the ENT Department. The Unit runs an active research programme and the Fellow will be invited to participate in this. The Fellow will be expected to take part in the Middle Grade on-call rota.

In order to be considered applicants must be senior trainees (either Post CCT or in the final years of training). Applicants will be expected to have had basic training in Head & Neck Surgery. Other essential criteria include FRCS (ORL) and evidence of participation in research.

This post does not carry a training number and candidates in Type 1 placements should therefore make arrangements to undertake this fellowship as Out of Programme Training. 

Candidates applying from overseas should have equivalent experience in ENT and hold an exit ENT qualification.

The applicant must have 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). Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS/OET exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.

Closing date: 11 November 2018.
