This vacancy is for a Specialist Biomedical Scientist with HCPC registration. However, we will consider a Biomedical Scientist who has started their Specialist Diploma. 

The successful candidate will be part of a Blood Sciences team providing an efficient, high quality diagnostic service. This will be through participation in the specialist technical and scientific operations, for investigations of pathological disease in biological fluids on patient samples, within the Blood Science Department at Scarborough Hospital.

The successful candidate will be given training in Haematology, Biochemistry and Transfusion to enable a full blood sciences role.

The department is fully equipped with Roche Cobas 8000, Sysmex XN, Werfen ACL TOP and Grifols analysers.  The department will also be moving to a new open plan space to facilitate the provision of an efficient state of the art Blood Science Service. It will be a contractual requirement for the successful candidate to participate in the 24/7 shift system.

We value our staff and fully support their professional development. For example, we have regular lunchtime meetings on current topics and cases and we encourage our team to attend training courses and external meetings including the IBMS Congress.

In addition, as an IBMS approved training laboratory we encourage and support all Band 5 staff to obtain the IBMS Specialist Diploma in Biomedical Science.  For Band 6 staff we encourage and support further study to enable career progression.

We are always keen for Biomedical Scientists to undertake further training and therefore very much support our staff in achieving IBMS Higher Specialist Diplomas and MSc courses. 

UKAS accreditation has been recommended and will be completed this year.

Do please get in touch with us to arrange a tour of the laboratory to see for yourself what an interesting and friendly place it is!

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

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. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) 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 UKVI 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. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
