We have an exciting opportunity for a clinical technologist to join our friendly and dynamic team in the osteoporosis centre at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS), on a one year, fixed term contract.


This is a great opportunity for an enthusiastic and well-motivated individual who can work well as part of a team as well as independently. The role involves close patient contact therefore good communication skills are essential.


You will need to have:


  • Competent computer skills for precision measurements.
  • Educated to degree level or have equivalent and relevant knowledge/qualifications.
  • Experience in bone densitometry would be an advantage but is not essential, as full training will be provided.
  • Experience working within a health care environment with an interest in bone health would be beneficial and the post may interest appropriately qualified allied health professionals e.g. nurses or radiographers as well as scientists.



The osteoporosis centre houses two high specification bone densitometers a HRpQCT scanner and two Ultrasound machines and provides bone density, bone quality, body composition and vertebral assessment scans for in/out patients and private patients. Approximately 5000 patients are seen each year. The centre also offers technical services to clinical and scientific research.


University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust is one of England's largest acute teaching trusts. We've been rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission and in the national NHS Staff Survey we ranked seventh in the country for staff engagement and fourth best nationally for our proportion of staff saying that they would recommend the hospital as a place to work or to receive care.


Southampton is an attractive place to live and work situated on the south coast, with an international airport and only an hour on the train from central London. The New Forest National Park and the beaches of the Jurassic coast are also right on our doorstep. The city offers living costs 20% lower than those in London, 13 schools rated outstanding by Ofsted and 13 nearby green spaces to enjoy.


Interview date: Monday, 11 March.


Closing date: Monday, 25 February.
