An exciting opportunity has arisen for a conscientious and enthusiastic individual to join the West Midlands Genomics Medicine Centre on a 12 months fixed term basis due to funding. As the lead organisation for the WM GMC, this role is based within University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust.

The WM GMC was one of the exemplar GMCs that delivered the recruitment phase of the 100,000 Genomes Project, recruiting more cancer participants than any other centre and the second most rare disease participants.

As the system wide NHS transformation progresses into its second phase, the WM GMC are seeking to appoint an individual who can support this transition and assist in the completion of 100,000 Genome Project legacy activities.

The post holder will play a pivotal role in embedding Genomics into mainstream practice by supporting the recently established Genomic Tumour Advisory Boards (GTABs) and Genomic Rare Disease Advisory Boards (GRdABs).

The post holder will evolve Cancer and Rare Disease Genetic networks across the West Midlands GMC footprint that will define a pathway for clinical recommendations to be acted upon.

The successful applicant will be proactive in acutely recording and measuring relevant patient data that will underpin the development of novel therapeutic pathways.

In this rewarding position you will be involved in the transformation of Genomics discussions into mainstream NHS practice that will support to implement quality improvements to patient care.

This post will require an individual with exceptional communication and organisational skills, effective time management and the ability to work with minimal supervision.




All posts involving access to persons in receipt of health services will be subject to a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us; this will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances of your offences.

Staff recruited from outside of the NHS will usually be appointed at the bottom of the pay band.

Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced or skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as it is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Border Agency requires employers to complete this test to show that suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit UK Border Agency website.
