York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is delighted to invite an experienced or new Paediatric Consultant to join our team. The post is based at our Scarborough Hospital site and we are looking for candidates with general paediatric experience who are interested in helping to develop our existing services and be part of a forward thinking, innovative Paediatric Team.

We will work with the successful candidate to develop a unique and ideal job plan, considering the individual’s needs in order to help develop Paediatric services across the Trust. The post is flexible and we are happy to accommodate special interests offering an exciting opportunity to develop new or existing specialist areas. You will participate in a 1:10 consultant of the week rota and a 1:10 weekend on call rota.

The department has close links with Hull and York Medical School (HYMS) offering opportunities for undergraduate teaching or the development of management roles within the medical school. The post may involve opportunities to work across other sites within the Trust, in particular York and Malton, and will offer teaching and supervision responsibilities in respect of specialty trainees. The Trust has an active Research department who are keen to support and explore research opportunities across our Consultant body.

The surrounding area of North Yorkshire is one of the most attractive in England and offers opportunities for city, coastal or rural living. Scarborough is situated on the edge of the Yorkshire moors national park with miles of beautiful coastline on the doorstep. The historical cultural city of York is situated just 40 miles inland. There are excellent options for schooling at all levels throughout the region. This position involves resident on call, or on call from home, giving the successful candidate considerable flexibility to choose where to live.

In joining the Trust you will have access to a wide range of staff benefits including health and wellbeing support, finance schemes and discounts. There is also a competitive relocation package of up to £8,000. To support your learning and development you will be entitled to a study leave budget of £3,000 across three years, along with support from our learning and development team.

In order to learn more about the trust and see what the Paediatric Department can offer you, we invite you to arrange a visit. We will also use this time to learn about your interests and what you can offer the department. For the right candidate job plans, special interests and hours of work can be developed flexibly. Part time or full time hours will be considered.

If you are shortlisted, the recruitment process will take place as follows;

Assessment Centre; if shortlisted, we will invite you to an Assessment Centre on 26 March 2019 where we will ask you to participate in recruitment activities. The Assessment Centre will be held at Scarborough Hospital and usually lasts no more than 3 hours. Full details will be provided to you if you are shortlisted to attend.
