At UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) our success starts with you.

This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

Based in the busy West End of London, we have a lively and vibrant working atmosphere, with quick and easy transport links to all our sites. Our size and resources enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels. This includes an extensive portfolio of academic and clinical courses and programmes ranging from ongoing personal development through to clinical excellence and leadership skills. UCLH prides itself on its investment in staff both in terms of developing career skills but also its commitment to staff health and wellbeing.

Junior Doctor ST1/2 post (equivalent to CT1/2 level) is available in the UCLH Head & Neck cancer department for contracts of up to 12 months in the first instance and are renewable by mutual consent.

Advertised as Trust Junior Doctor ST1/2 posts for Head & Neck; we would consider applicants wishing to carry out more specific roles in either Maxillofacial Surgery or ENT Surgery depending on individual interest and training needs.

This is an exciting time to join the Head & Neck Surgery department, based at the main site of UCLH. The department has recently expanded (December 2015) and is now the main surgical cancer site for Maxillofacial and ENT patients from North and East London (including the Royal Free London, Barts Health and UCLH MDT catchment areas), as a result, the service is now caring for a large number of complex cases and Junior Fellow will receive training and support from a number of senior specialists.

The Junior Fellow will provide care for both Maxillofacial and ENT patients. The rota allows the Junior Fellow to have the opportunity to gain significant Head and Neck Cancer experience including reconstructive free flap surgery (around eight major cases performed per month), facial trauma and aesthetic facial surgery.

Applicants will also be encouraged to participate in the extensive teaching, research, audit and service improvement within UCL collaboration projects around individual development requirements and the need of the service.

The on-call rota is a full shift system to cover the Maxillofacial and ENT admissions. All seven Junior Fellow participate in the shift system, and it is banded at 1A.

We encourage applications from individuals who are medically qualified Junior Fellow (equivalent to CT1/2) wishing to pursue a career in Head & Neck Surgery.
