Welsh Clinical Leadership Training Fellowship (WCLTF)

Following on from the success of the Welsh Clinical Leadership Training Fellowship (WCLTF) scheme for medical and dental trainees, Health Education & Improvement Wales in association with NHS Wales, Welsh Government, and other health related organisations are pleased to announce that Pharmacists are now able to submit applictations to the scheme for September 2019 start.

These Fellowships are designed to develop high quality clinical leaders for the future NHS. Graduates form the Welsh Clinical Leadership Training (WCLTF) scheme will be ideally placed to build and lead development and improvements in the delivery of health care. This is a one year, fixed term opportunity. The scheme will provide training and experience in clinical leadership and management and will equip Fellows with the range of knowledge and skills they require to compete as leaders in the modern NHS. The aim of the scheme is to recruit the most aspiring clinical leaders of the future.

Successful applicants will undertake a leadership and management project which are designed to provide appropriate experience in Health Service management. As part of this, each WCLT Fellow will be given a specific task (or tasks) to deliver in collaboration with senior management colleagues within the timeframe of the fellowship.

The programme equips the Leadership Fellows with a range of knowledge, skills and experience required to be credible and influential clinical leaders in a future modern NHS.

Applicants for the WCLTF programme should be pharmacists at Agenda for Change band 8A or 8B who already have significant experience working in the NHS and who have taken on leadership roles/responsibilities within their current organisation.

Applicants should be able to take one year out of their current substantive post to undertake this role. Prior to applying for the Fellowship, applicants are required to obtain written confirmation of the support of their organisation for taking one year away from their substantive post. Candidates wishing to train flexibly are welcomed and should indicate this on their application.

The recruitment period for the scheme closes at 10am on 26th July 2019. Applicants will be required to have sought approval from their current employer to begin the role on Monday 2nd September 2019, within the allocated host organisation.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to: Dr Ian Collings, Interim Deputy Dean, HEIW, or Professor Margaret Allan, Pharmacy Dean, HEIW

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

Applications from job seekers who require current 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 current Resident Labour Market Test which will be in place until the end of December 2020. UK Visas and Immigration 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 UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, have had to 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) are also subject to this requirement.
