Do you have an eye for detail? Are you an excellent team player?  Do you want a career in the NHS but don’t know where to start?  We are looking for an enthusiastic and conscientious Apprentice Clerical Officer to join the Clinical Coding Team within Systems and Network Services. Not only will you gain valuable experience of the NHS, but you will also undertake a nationally recognised apprenticeship programme.

The successful candidate will be required to work towards completing the Business Administrator apprenticeship learning standard.

  • This apprenticeship standard is at Level 2 and will typically take between 12 and 15 months to complete.
  • The post is full time (37.5 hours per week).
  • Salary- higher level apprenticeship - Band 2 Annex U , £13,091 per annum.
  • There might be an opportunity for a permanent post upon achieving a qualification, subject to service requirement.

The Clinical Coding team is responsible for coding all inpatient and day case episodes within the Trust, working to strict monthly deadlines, as coded data directly affects the income received by the Trust. The post holder will work as part of a small team, responsible for the provision of a robust support service to the Clinical Coders, by ensuring that case notes and other documents needed for coding are made available, thereby contributing to the accuracy and timeliness of coding within the Trust.

The successful candidate will be an effective communicator and act as an ambassador for the department, building and maintaining relationships outside the department to ensure smooth running of the clerical support service. The post holder will also be responsible for ensuring that case notes are returned to the appropriate areas within agreed time limits, after completion of clinical coding. The post involves transporting and manual handling of large volumes of case notes and using initiative in working to strict monthly deadlines.

Successful candidates will be shortlisted based upon how they meet the essential and desirable criteria, set out in the Person Specification. Applicants should highlight how they meet the criteria through their employment history, qualifications and within their supporting information.

Applicant requirements

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.
