An exciting opportunity has opened up for a dedicated therapeutic radiographer based in pre-treatment. The Advanced Radiographer will work closely with other senior members of the team to develop the service, with a focus on the breast pathway.
We are looking for a candidate with extensive experience in pre-treatment. Candidates with experience of radiographer-led breast planning would be at an advantage.

We are a modern paperless radiotherapy department with a fully implemented four tier career structure. We have recently signed a managed service contract securing a fleet of six Varian TrueBeam linear accelerators, two CT simulators, a new brachytherapy unit and Xstrahl superficial unit. Our dosimetry planning is radiographer-led, predominately using VMAT and IMRT.
We are a fully networked Varian department. Our second TrueBeam will be clinical early this year, as will our second CT Simulator.

Norwich is served by two large shopping centres, with all the national chains you would expect, alongside independent retailers in the historic streets and vibrant market. The city also has more than its fair share of restaurants, pubs, theatres and clubs to keep you occupied outside work.
Surrounding Norwich there are a number of small towns and villages for those who prefer a quieter life. We also have good rail links to London and Cambridge.

 

Hours of Work: Full Time 37.5 hours per week. You will work a four day week with a day off during the week; working early and late shifts between 07:00 – 20:00hrs. You will be expected to work some bank holidays and on-call duties at the weekends.  

Opening Date for Applications: 7th February 2018
