An opportunity has arisen to join our team of specialist cardiac radiographers at University Hospital Southampton.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, self motivated radiographer. Experience of cardiothoracic imaging is desirable but not essential, as the successful applicant will be given the necessary training.  We have the latest X-ograph - DR equipment and four Siemens Artis cardiac catheter labs. We offer a supportive and positive working environment alongside a well established and experienced multi disciplinary team. You will work closely with cardiologists, cardiac physiologists and nursing staff in an interventional environment performing a wide range of routine and emergency procedures.

All radiographers are actively encouraged to personally develop along their career path with opportunities available in this continually developing organisation. There will also be an opportunity to work in our new Siemens Hybrid Lab which is the first of its kind in the UK. There is also a further possibility to be trained in Cardiac MRI in the future.  We value people who want to make a difference to patients and to their workplace.

You must be able to demonstrate good communication skills, professionalism and a flexible approach to working in the cardiac catheter labs, the cardiac plain film service and cardiac MRI. Good attention to detail, the ability to work independently is crucial for this role. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in our busy cardiac catheter labs on call rota and to cover the cardiac chest x-ray services during evenings and weekends.

Experience of Radiology IT systems such as PACS/RIS are essential and proficiency with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint are highly desirable.

Candidates must have a BSc (HONS) Diagnostic Radiography or equivalent and current HCPC membership.
