We are looking for an experienced Team Leader to supervise the Imaging Support Workers (ISW). The ISWs are essential for the effective transportation of patients from the wards to the Radiology Department, ensuring the efficient use of scanning time. Their role is extremely physical involving the use of wheelchairs, trolleys and beds. An ISW mixes oral contrast for patients to drink prior to some examinations.

An Imaging Support Worker will remove cannulas after examinations. and will help prepare and maintain the working environment. But most importantly will help provide the much needed care and support for patients. This helps provide a better experience for the patient and can lead to better imaging. The Imaging Support Workers are an essential part of the Radiology Team. As Team Leader you will be expected to supervise and lead them on a daily basis.

You will be expected to be able to do all of the above as well as prepare rotas and rostering duties. You will work closely with the Radiographer Principal but will be expected to make decisions and support staff as and when needed.

It is essential that you are a good communicator with experience of dealing with the public. You should be ;  flexible, organised and able to work as part of a team. You should be energetic, keen and willing to learn.

Previous supervisory experience or knowledge of the Imaging Support Worker role is also essential.
