Voted by the Sunday Times as the best place to live in Britain, Salisbury is an attractive place to live and work and really gives you the best of everything. With easy access to London and local airports, Salisbury also has one of the 31 UNESCO world heritage sites in the UK in the form of Stonehenge and in addition boasts a number of museums and famous landmarks which are well worth a visit. Alternatively, the city of Southampton is only a short train or car journey away or if you prefer the sea, Bournemouth is also accessible.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a well-motivated, enthusiastic and skilled Biomedical Scientist Team Manager to join the Biochemistry department at Salisbury District Hospital.
The Laboratory is well equipped and highly regarded by our users. The department has implemented a managed service contract which has given us state of the art equipment and modern facilities. It is UKAS accredited and MHRA compliant.

The department is an approved training laboratory for HCPC registration and Specialist portfolio. Personal development, CPD, and attendance at meetings, both internal and external, are all actively encouraged.

As a Band 7 BMS you will have current registration with the HCPC with extensive post registration experience within Biochemistry. You will have an MSc (or equivalent) in a relevant scientific subject. You will have proven scientific, technical and communication skills in association with a commitment to training, quality management, continuous professional development, health & safety and audit. The successful candidate must be quality driven and have a good understanding of how to deliver a service that meets the ISO 15189:2012 standard.
The role will involve day to day supervision and organisation of the technical diagnostic services within the department to ensure turn-around times are achieved and provide excellent service delivery.
You will be joining our friendly team to assist and provide leadership, strategy and day to day support to the Biochemistry team and associated partnerships. You will work closely with the Laboratory Management Team to ensure that the high quality service is maintained and bring ideas from your extensive experience to help shape the future of the laboratory. Good communication, interpersonal skills and a commitment to team working are essential.
