Band 6 Senior Renal Technologist

An excellent opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and highly motivated Senior Renal Technologist with several years’ experience to join our Renal Technologist Team based at The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

The post holder will be part of a specialist technical team delivering high quality maintenance to a large fleet of Haemodialysis, Hemofiltration, and water treatment equipment across the region. There is one main unit, seven satellite units, twenty four community/home patients, Children’s Services and two Intensive care units; therefore a full driving license is essential.

Candidates should be at graduate level (in electrical engineering/medical engineering) or equivalent with additional previous experience.

Should a suitable candidate not come forward consideration would be given to recruitment to a lower grade training grade position at Band 4 salary details or if we decided Band 6 annex 21 was preferable then on B6 Annex 21 up to 4 years.
